Barnardo’s to Open NW Donation Centre in Blackpool
Posted on 12th September 2012
The UK’s biggest children’s charity Barnardo’s has taken a new lease at Cherry Tree Road retail park, Blackpool.
The 6,013 sq ft out of town retail unit will be converted into a Barnardo’s Donation Centre which will allow easy access for the public to drop off donated items including larger items such as furniture. The unit will also feature a retail area selling a range of goods including clothing, electrical and furniture. Robert Pinkus & Co. acted on behalf of the landlord.
Joe Assalone, Parner at Robert Pinkus & Co. said, “Barnardo’s has taken a new approach to their retailing with this new outlet at Cherry Tree Road Retail Park. It is unlike the typical smaller, high street units that charities are mostly associated with but complements their existing outlets on the Fylde. The move makes logistical and commercial sense for the charity due to the close proximity to the motorway, passing local and visitor traffic and the popularity of the retail park due to nearby retailers such as Asda, Bensons Bed Centre, and Storey Carpets. We wish them every success in their new location.”
