Shoppers will be offered styling advice and beauty treats when Harvey Nichols Leeds takes over the Moortown Mind charity shop on Wednesday.

The luxury store’s famous doorman will be welcoming customers throughout the day as a group of team members from Harvey Nichols use their skills to help the shop on Harrogate Parade to drive sales, gain new customers and raise awareness for the mental health charity.

Moortown’s shoppers can book themselves in for one-to-one styling sessions with a Harvey Nichols’ stylist, helping customers to make the most of items from the shop, as well as indulge in mini beauty treatments in exchange for a donation to the charity.

Harvey Nichols has chosen Mind as its official charity for the next two years.

In May a team of 17 from the Leeds store raised more than £3,000 for Mind by walking 47 Miles.
