NANSA opens new flagship store on Magdalen Street, Norwich
02.10.2017
NANSA, one of Norfolk’s leading disability empowerment charities, is proud to be opening its new flagship store in Magdalen Street, Norwich this week.

This new venture is a fusion of a modern charity shop and NANSA’s artshopproject concept which focuses on upcycling, second-hand arts and craft supplies, jewellery and craft workshops. The shop will also host NANSA’s Train and Trade service – A careers support service offering a range of Traineeships that aim to break down the barriers those with disabilities face when seeking employment or education.

“We are very excited to be opening our doors in the heart of Magdalen Street”, commented NANSA CEO Ros Czarnowska. “We’ve had a retail presence across Norwich for several years, but the launch of our exciting new venture in such a vibrant community as Magdalen Street gives us the opportunity to really showcase what we can offer.”

“People can expect something a bit different from our new store with a fabulous range of both modern and retro stock, together with our usual great customer service, access to creative crafts and a chance to see how we are empowering people with disabilities.

Mrs Czarnowska added “We are already looking at new and innovative ways to ensure that our Magdalen Street store is as inclusive a shopping experience as possible. We would love the chance to share our ideas with other businesses that have similar goals in enhancing the shopping experience for people with disabilities.”

The new Magdalen Street shop will begin trading on Friday 6 October and NANSA is holding an official opening event on Saturday 14 October.
