A NEW charity superstore has opened its doors for the first time.

Goods made and collected by companions of Burnley’s homeless charity Emmaus are being sold at the store which is based in Ivy Street, next to St John’s Church,

Chairman Mr Peter Pike said the first day had gone very well and reminded members of the public they can arrange for any good quality unwanted furniture to be collected by the team by ringing 430860.

“We had a very good trading day, taking in around £800 which is very encouraging. People were queuing up outside before we opened and the team of volunteers and companions worked very hard to make sure everything went well.”

Trading days will be Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. More information can be found at www.emmaus.org.uk.
