What do we do?
Esther Martin provides a service selling comfortable, stylish and affordable clothing to men and women who experience difficulty getting out and about.
With our mobile shop we visit nursing/residential homes, sheltered/assisted accommodation, day care centres, lunch clubs, groups/societies and dementia cafes selling to groups through our unique clothes party format where we donate cakes/biscuits, tea/coffee is served, allowing for a relaxed, non-pressured shopping environment. Customers/Relatives are encouraged to browse the ‘shop’ however Esther Martin Assistants are on hand to present clothing to those who are less mobile and prefer to stay seated.
Alternatively we can visit customers on a one-to-one basis in private housing through arranged appointment. This is ideal if an individual has more specific clothing requirements, e.g. If someone wishes to buy an outfit for a special occasion or has a particular shopping list of items and they can choose to select from the Esther Martin product range or opt for our personal shopping service at extra cost.
