Kirsty - Owner
I live in Moortown with my Family. I am originally from Northumberland but I have lived in Leeds since 2004.
I had no previous experience before starting the business in 2018...just a passion to do things differently - It's been a steep learning curve from a hobby to a fully grown business across two sites. I have never looked back!
The refilling Station was born from a passion to help others make small changes to their weekly shop by offering eco-friendly alternatives such as loose dry foods, refills and lots more.
I'm a Living Wage Employer
I have always paid my team members a living wage and will continue to do so. They are invaluable to me so that may have the flexibility to parent my children and run a business at the same time.
Harrogate Branch - 47 Cold Bath Road, HG2 0NL
We opened the Harrogate branch in late 2019 and then COVID 19 hit! We were the first shop of it's kind in Harrogate. We moved the the Cold Bath Road location in September 2020.
There are two distinct parts to this shop; the entrance with the victorian glass windows is where you will find our household and personal care goods and through a small corridor you will find our food refill area.
Downstairs we rent out a treatment room to Camilla who owns Skin SOS
We have one full member of staff, Lydia who is currently on Maternity Leave and the rest are part-time team members including Lynne, Colleen and Becca. Lenny, a school pupil helps out on a Saturday.
Leeds Branch - 176 Harrogate Road, Chapel Allerton
The shop opened in early 2019 in the busy suburb of Chapel Allerton close to where I live. There are many complimentary shops making the area a destination for food shopping.
All Team members are part-time and I work in the Leeds shop part-time too.
Clare is the shop manager and we then have Lizzie, Alena and Luke. Ella is a school pupil who works with us on Saturdays. We also have several casual staff who help during holidays.
