THE Highland Hospice's city centre shop is moving to a new high profile location.

The hospice is quitting the current shop in Queensgate and leasing the former Laura Ashley store on Falcon Square.

Hospice managers want the historic building which is part of Eastgate Shopping Centre, to become their flagship store in the north offering a prestigious and high profile location.

"Our intention is to refit the shop in a unique and distinctive fashion," they said.

The hospice is currently advertising for a new manager to run the "exciting new retail development" in Falcon Square.

Applicants for the manager post, salary £18,600 to £20,606 per annum for 37.5 hours a week, must have a "proven track record in retail and be able to demonstrate creativity, flair and drive."

The application deadline is noon, Friday, November 6.

The hospice has also advertised for a shop assistant for its Fort William shop.

The Inverness based hospice has a total of 13 shops from Thurso and Wick in the north, to Forres and Nairn in the east, Aviemore and Grantown in the south and Portree and Fort William in the west.

The Falcon Square premises became vacant in the summer after the Laura Ashley chain went into receivership.
