A lot of us take the right to learn, work and be creative for granted. But for people with learning difficulties, disabilities or life challenges, pathways to training and employment can be limited or non existent.
That’s why we created Promise in Store.
We source and sell beautiful gifts and household goods from partners who are dedicated to creating educational or employment opportunities for people with learning difficulties, disabilities or life challenges. We’re constantly humbled by the dedication, character and potential of all those we meet and grateful for their collaboration with us.
We work in partnership with a range of organisations across the UK who share our core values:
- Integrity – All of our partners create products that are beautiful, made from high quality materials and ingredients, and we’d be happy to have in our home.
- Accessibility – We want as many people as possible to enjoy our products. As such our product range always includes affordable items that represent good value for money.
- Kindness – We believe in being friendly, generous and considerate to everyone we meet, and where we can, exceeding our customers needs.
Why the name Promise in Store?
Names matter. When we think of a person or place by name it comes with so many associations (positive or negative) and we wanted the name of the company to be full of hope and potential.
Promise in Store not only refers to the promise within each of us, or the quality of potential excellence, but promise also means to ‘forward send’ in Latin. We hope to develop customer service retail skills and send people forward confidently into the retail sector to fulfil their potential wherever possible. Promise is hope.
As well as our online store, we also run regular stalls and pop-up events; keep an eye on our Instagram for dates. And if you want to learn more about our beginnings, check out our Founder’s Story.
