Blaenau Furniture centre
Established by Seren in 1999 our furniture project relocated to our new premises in August 2004, This project has been established to provide environmental and social benefit, we do this by generating revenue that will further develop employment, training and independent living opportunities for people with learning difficulties and by diverting furniture items from the land fill waste stream. An active supporter of our work is Channel 4's House Auction presenter and professional property developer James Gibbon. He says: "Seren's recycling centre is not a make do alternative to buying new, it is a sensible and socially responsible way of buying unique and original furniture pieces".
The first type of restored furniture that we always have available is, re-manufactured transport damaged and end of line furniture stocks from a number of the UK's largest furniture retailers, which we sell assembled and at less than 60% of the original high street retail price. These stocks include, contemporary leather three piece suites, dinning tables and chairs, king, double, single and bunk beds, pine wardrobes, chests of drawers, coffee tables, entertainment units and conservatory furniture to name but a few.
The second type of furniture is re-use furniture. Such items have been generously donated to us to sell, by individuals and organizations throughout Gwynedd who support the work that we do for the benefit of others.
