Harleston eco-shop All Things Greener expands
An independent shop selling environmentally-friendly products and gifts has expanded by moving across the road in Harleston.
All Things Greener, which has been based in the market town since 2007, relocated to an empty store 25 metres away to get twice the amount of floorspace.
The move from Church Street to 7 Union Street has enabled Simon and Laura Marjoram, who run the business, to expand the range of products they sell and for the first time sell Fairtrade foods such as pasta, teas, coffees and sweets.
The business, which reopened on Monday, now employs one full-time and one part-time employee, and also sells and installs solar panels and wind turbines.
Mr Marjoram said they had already noticed a lot more passing trade at the more central location.

'We have had a very encouraging start. We have only moved 25 metres, if that, but we have already noticed how many more people walk past. We were on a corner before and people did not cross the road to get to us.'
'We could not increase our income where we were and we had to expand because the business was starting to stall,' he said.
