Fine food retailer FINK is branching out in Boroughbridge by opening a second shop on its High Street.

FINK Home and Nature will open its doors at number 32 on Saturday (July 28), with a range of ecologically aware health & beauty, household, and garden products.

Director Hugh Fink says its governing ethos will be ‘Refill, Reuse, Respect’, and the aim is to provide options for environmentally-friendly shopping that helps consumers reduce their plastic use.

Meanwhile, Fink’s successful chocolate boutique, SweetFINK, will merge with its award-winning fine-food counterpart at 14 High Street.

“We will be starting with a relatively small range of products at FINK Home and Nature,” said Mr Fink.

“We are responding to a growing demand for refillable, ethical products and are really keen to have suggestions from our customers about which products they would like to see in the shop.”

FINK Home and Nature will be launching with a range of laundry and household cleaning products, including the well-known Ecover brand and Hull-based Bio-D, as well as ethical health and beauty pro-ducts, as well as wild bird food, pet treats and garden gifts.

“We thought it would be logical to move all of our non-food products into FINK Home and Nature and keep the food side of the business at FINK,” said Sharon Longcroft, FINK’s co-director.

“Thanks to our recent shop refit at FINK we now have more space for exciting new products and look forward to welcoming new customers to Boroughbridge High Street.”
