YMCA opens largest charity shop in UK
Release date: 09 Jul 2009

Paul Fletcher MBE, Chief Executive of newly promoted Burnley FC, was guest of honour to open the YMCA's latest superstore on the site of the former Woolworths in Burnley town centre (July 3rd).


To our knowledge, this is the largest charity superstore in the UK - at nearly 16,000sq feet, offering a great mix of furniture, electrical goods, clothing, books, music and bric-a-brac.


A significant percentage of the store's profits will go directly towards helping homeless and vulnerable young people of East Lancashire.


Paul Freethy, District Retail Manager for YMCA Shops said 'this is a fantastically exciting opportunity for us to return to Burnley in spectacular fashion. I have overheard lots of comments questioning how we are going to fill a shop this size, but rest assured, that will not be a problem.'


For further information on volunteering or donating goods, please call YMCA shops on 01242 677690.
