A SHOP run by people with learning difficulties has undergone a revamp.
Stages, next to Huddersfield's Lawrence Batley Theatre, will celebrate its refurbishment with an open day from 10am to 6pm on Thursday.
Cards, jewellery, ornaments, pictures and original gifts made by local artists are all available. Some items are made by people with a disability.
The open day will also be an opportunity to enjoy a free coffee, have a chat with staff and find out more about the Real (Realistic Employment for Adults with Learning Disability) employment scheme.
The shop provides training in selling, customer care, stocktaking, health and safety issues and money and business running skills.
All profits from the shop are re-invested in the project.
Stages opened in February, 1999. It is one of the projects run by Real, which is a supported employment scheme for adults with learning disabilities.
Real is managed by Kirklees Council's social services and works closely with local employers. It helps people with learning disabilities to find jobs and to receive training and support at work.
Clr Dennis Hullock, Kirklees Cabinet member with responsibility for health and social care, said: "Stages gives adults with learning disabilities the chance to learn a range of retail and business skills.
"It also provides an outlet for local crafts people and artists to sell their work, as well as being somewhere for shoppers to buy an original gift," he added.
