A MORAY care home has opened a pop-up fashion shop offering a range of comfortable and stylish clothes for residents.

With many residents unable to go out shopping, staff at Glenisla Care Home in Keith brought the shop to them, transforming the home’s Strathisla lounge into a colourful fashion store for some much needed retail therapy.

Emily Clair, activities coordinator at Glenisla, said: “For many residents, particularly those with mobility problems, it simply isn’t possible to go into town to buy new clothes so we decided to bring the retail experience to them.

"It has been a difficult 18 months for residents so we are doing everything we can to keep their spirits high and ensure they enjoy the finer things in life that we all deserve.

"It went down a treat. Who doesn’t enjoy a spot of retail therapy?"

The pop-up fashion shop comes after Glenisla opened a new nail bar in its hair salon in July, offering manicures, foot spas and facials to residents.
