On the 22nd June after shop hours, a representative and trainer from the National Grocer’s Association visited the shop. She offered the volunteers a training session with guidance and tips on grocer shop practice and display with fresh goods.
The volunteers were given a presentation then some practical training in the shop. Everyone enjoyed the visit and said the tips were very interesting and helpful.
Our volunteers will all take a well-earned break for a couple of weeks while the shop is shut for Edinburgh Trades holidays. The staff will take a few days too!
