Seattle Cancer Care Alliance’s retail store Shine has been awarded the 2016 South Lake Union Chamber retailer of the year. Located just south of the SCCA clinic, Shine supports cancer patients and their families as well as the local neighborhood and community with its selection of merchandise and various services.
Shine opened in 2011 and is more than “just a gift shop.” Items such as greeting cards, clothing and jewelry can be found at the store but Shine also offers services such as head shaves and haircuts for patients as well as caregivers, wig trimmings and compression garment fittings.
And for Shine, it’s the people who keep it all going. Store managers Carrie Jacobson and Eileen Hood have been there from the start. SCCA is also grateful for the volunteers who work at the store. About 42 SCCA volunteers work at Shine and the gift shop in the SCCA clinic.
Next time you’re in the South Lake Union neighborhood, stop by Shine and take a look around. It’s a store for everyone.
