Manager of the Refilling Station Harrogate Lydia Ross has been so pleased with the reception the shop has received:

“It was nice to receive the welcome we had on Cold Bath Road – I’ve got to know some of the other shop owners, and loads of new customers who didn’t even know we existed!

“We’ve also had quite a few tourists as well, people on holiday coming in and then wishing there was a similar shop where they live!
