Instant success for Mansfield BHF store

The new British Heart Foundation (BHF) Furniture & Electrical Store at Unit 3, 27 Stockwell Gate is fast gaining a reputation as a destination for affordable furniture and electrical products in Mansfield.

Since opening on Tuesday 26th June, thousands of customers have visited the store, which sells a range of furniture such as suites, sofas, chairs, dining sets, beds and wardrobes plus an array of electrical items including TVs, Hi-Fis, washing machines, fridges and dishwashers.

Lots of quirky, unique items spanning many eras have been donated.

All funds raised in the sStore have been pumped into the BHF’s life saving work in the fight against heart disease – the UK’s biggest killer. BHF Shops raise over £31 million annually to help fund research, patient care and life saving equipment.

Chris Ward, BHF Area Manager, said: “We are delighted that a month on the Mansfield Store has made its mark in the local community. When you consider that selling two sofas can provide a heart patient with a hand held ECG machine so that they can monitor their heart at home, it really puts things into perspective how much this Store is helping those in need.”

The store’s success is largely dependent on the generous donations from the Mansfield locals, and the BHF urges them to continue donating good quality items that will help save lives. Locals can book a free collection by going online at bhf.org.uk/free or calling the Store on 0844 334 1416.
