Hospice superstore

A “NEW concept” superstore has been opened in Bristol by St Peter’s Hospice to help the charity raise funds. 

Two-thirds of the store is given over to displaying furniture both new and up-cycled.  Shoppers will also find pre-loved clothing, small electrical items, and homeware in the rest of the store.

It is also offering house clearance, furniture collection and delivery services as well as having a donation station within the shop.

John Broomhead, St Peter’s Hospice retail director, said: “We believe this will provide a really exciting shopping experience with quality sustainable products at great prices that our local supporters will love. 

“With the hospice’s costs continually rising it’s important for us to identify new ways of raising money. All the profits generated from this store will go towards supporting the Hospice, offering important end of life care to all communities in Bristol.

 “This store is the first of its kind for St Peter’s. We are looking at this as a one-stop shop  for customers and we hope it will be the first of many”.

Television presenter Izzie Balmer, known for her appearances on programmes such as 

 Antiques Road Trip and Bargain Hunt, said at the store’s official launch: “This store provides a fantastic way of helping an important charity. People can save things from being thrown away by donating them to this store, and of course by buying here”.  

The shop is on street level beneath the West End multi-storey car park on the edge of Clifton Triangle.
