The 0.72 acre site at the junction of Lindale Road and Windermere Road is earmarked for the development of a new Booths foodstore. Age UK now occupies the prominent showroom premises as a new charity superstore utislising the showroom to sell larger big box items such as furniture as well as accepting good quality donations of books, bric-a-brac and clothing.
John O’Brien, Head of Income at Age UK South Lakeland said, “We had a hugely successful and well-supported opening on 5th November. We will be able to make fantastic use of the showroom space and great on-site customer parking available to us at Station Square and will take any saleable donations big or small. The new superstore will provide a substantial boost to our fundraising effots and we hope the public will visit us for any special Christmas purchases this season.”
Mark Harrison, surveyor at Robert Pinkus & Co. said, “We are delighted that Age UK are able to use the property to sell bigger, high ticketed items to raise much needed funds for the local branch of Age UK, who will distribute the funds back into the local area helping the elderly residents during the approaching cold winter months.”
