New 20,000 sq ft charity superstore opens


Your local air ambulance opened its biggest superstore, The Hanger, in Beaumont Leys Leicestershire. The superstore has undergone a substantial transformation over the last next few weeks and now the 20,000 sq ft space is the charity’s third and biggest superstore to date, offering customers a vast range and quantity of goods, as well as a donation station to make it easier for people to drop off their donations.

The grand opening was attended by charity staff, volunteers, crew, and the official mascot Blade. As the ribbon was cut, visitors were welcomed in and had the opportunity to have a look around the superstore split over two floors and shop the extensive variety of new and pre-loved homeware, furniture, electricals, clothing, entertainment, and brand-new white goods for sale.

The charity’s Head of Retail, Gemma Ingram said:

“It’s great to be able to open our doors to the Leicestershire community today – and on behalf of the charity – I’d like to say a massive thank you to our local communities as we have already received such wonderful support. We have such a vast variety of goods on offer here, so I really do encourage people to come to Beaumont Leys visit our superstore and shop with us, as we really couldn’t offer our lifesaving service without the public’s generosity.”
