Our Furniture & Electrical
Stores are calling on people to donate their unwanted
household goods after buying new items in the January
sales. Our Stores are always looking for donations of sofas, chairs, dining sets,
beds and wardrobes plus an array of electrical items including TVs,
Hi-Fis, washing machines, fridges and dishwashers.
Our Retail Director, Mike Taylor, said: “With so many
people buying new household items such as beds and sofas in the
January sales we know there will be a lot of unwanted items
around. It’s shocking that 18% of people said that they
throw out their unwanted furniture and electrical goods so we just
want to remind everyone that we’re always looking for
donations for our Stores and offer a free collection service."
