A major refurbishment has increased the floor space of a popular city centre charity shop.

Work started in the British Heart Foundation (BHF) Furniture and Electrical Store in Castle Meadow last month.

And builders have been working hard on the massive refit and reconfiguration to add an upstairs showroom, increasing the sales floor space by 70pc.

Now, store manager Andy Major is ready to reopen, with the grand unveiling taking place today.

He said: 'The added floor space will enable a greater variety and quantity of the furniture and electrical items – so generously donated by the people of Norfolk – to be displayed. Added to this there has been a further extension and three new ranges added to our existing new goods lines.

'We will also be providing a passenger lift which will be available for customers to use if required.'

Work started on October 10 and took two weeks to complete, but the store remained open in that time.

The store stocks new and used furniture and electrical items, to raise money for BHF.

It is run by a team of volunteers and paid staff and fresh stock is received daily, with donations always welcome.
