Aryajaya is the Retail Director at Windhorse:evolution in Cambridge, UK. She writes: Evolution has opened it’s 21st shop in the South London suburb of Croydon. It was very exciting to open the doors last Friday in time for the Christmas shopping period and the shop was received enthusiastically by the local shoppers.
I personally enjoyed talking with our new customers on our opening day. It’s one of my favourite parts of the job! I was chatting with them about our ethical trading policies, great prices, and that our profits are given away to Buddhist projects or to help in our supplier communities. Most customers are very happy to hear that we are genuinely trying to offer products and a service based on Buddhist principles. Many said they would be back for Christmas presents.
Abhyakirti was the Project Manager for the shop set-up and is pictured here opening the store. The new shop continues our policy of expanding Evolution in major shopping destinations. It’s the 4th new shop we have opened in the past 12 months. We are currently planning to continue this expansion into 2013.
