North Devon Hospice opened its brand new furniture shop in Braunton Road, Pottington this weekend.

North Devon Hospice has opened a brand new furniture store in Barnstaple.

The new shop in Two Rivers Industrial Estate, Pottington, offers pre-loved furniture as well as homeware, white goods and other electricals, with all proceeds helping the hospice to care for patients and families in North Devon.

The charity says the new store is a great chance for local people to find an unexpected bargain, while also supporting local people affected by a life-limiting illness.

Geoff Edwards, store manager, said: "I'm sure that everyone will be pleasantly surprised by the great range of stock we've got.

"We're really pleased to be offering local people fantastic furniture as well as lots of other items for the home.

"Everything is great value and of course all the proceeds go to North Devon Hospice.

"So each purchase will help our doctors, nurses, counsellors and therapists provide essential care and support to people right across North Devon."

In total the hospice has 12 charity shops across North Devon, which make a big difference to the local charity, helping to raise around £1.2million each year to support the care and support provided.

The hospice said the site in Braunton Road, is big improvement on its previous premises, with more room on the shop floor as well as ample parking and space to collect donations.

Geoff added: "We're really pleased to have more space in our new furniture store, because we can showcase an even bigger range of stock, meaning there is so much more on offer to our customers.

"The new store is also really easy to find, because we're just off the new Barnstaple bridge, right on the main road with plenty of parking outside.

"It is a real improvement and we can't wait to welcome the community to come and have a look."

Officially opened this weekend, the store will be open six days a week, Monday to Saturday from 9am to 4.30pm.

"Not only will you be picking up a bargain that you won't find elsewhere, but every pound spent will make a difference to local families facing the toughest of times," said Geoff.

The new store can be found on Braunton Road, Barnstaple, between Glow Maternity and Ireland's Motorcycles, on the Two Rivers Industrial Estate.
