The National Council for the Blind of Ireland (NCBI) is delighted to celebrate the further expansion of its retail chain with its first dedicated Furniture Warehouse selling quality second-hand furniture of all kinds. NCBI has 117 shops across the country and continues to be the second largest charity shop chain in the country. NCBI’s chain of shops play a vital and integral part in the charity’s overall fundraising efforts, allowing the national sight loss agency to provide vital life changing services to over 6,300 people each year.
Rosie Henson, NCBI Head of Retail said; “Opening this store is a fantastic step forward for NCBI and is in response to the high demand for second-hand furniture. Already a number of our stores sell furniture and clothing combined but this is the first warehouse space we have dedicated to furniture. NCBI is proud to play a part in promoting environmentally friendly practices through reusing and recycling. So by supporting our shops, customers not only generate funds for our services but also support our drive for more sustainable fashion and furniture.
We urge shoppers to pop in and see what is on offer but also to feel free to donate any unwanted furniture items. We also provide a collection service. All donations are gratefully received.”
