ScootaMart, which is now in its 25th year, can be found on St James' Street and adds to the company’s portfolio of stores which cover the whole of the North West.

The business supplies mobility scooters, power chairs, wheelchairs, rise and recline chairs, electric beds, rollators, stair lifts and all daily living aids to the general public, and also offer servicing and repairs either at the store or through home visits.

The manager of Burnley’s new ScootaMart, Gary Robinson, has revealed more about the venture and why the town is the perfect new location for this franchise.

“Over the years we have picked up many customers from the area so we know there is a need for a mobility store with low prices and the biggest choice in the town centre,” said Gary.

ScootaMart’s decision to open in the town has been welcomed by Burnley Business Improvement District (BID) Project Manager Andrew Dean.

“Despite the challenges of the pandemic it’s really positive to see a business choosing to open its doors here in Burnley, and we’re delighted to welcome them to the community,” said Andy.

“The way ScootaMart has grown across the North West of England is very impressive and we’re pleased that they have put their faith in Burnley as part of their continued expansion.”

As a Motability accredited company, ScootaMart can supply and service products on a worry free basis to customers who receive the enhanced rate for mobility. The Personal Independent Payment can also be used to join the scheme.
