Disability charity seeks six London sites

18th May 2023 | Jack Oliver

Disability equality charity Scope is looking to open six stores within the Greater London area.

Agents from Carter Jonas have been appointed to find suitable locations, as the charity looks to build on its current estate of 170 retail outlets in England and Wales.

Scope provides information and emotional support for disabled people. Its stores sell a range of new and second-hand goods including clothing, furniture, and electronics.

The charity is looking for high street or shopping centre units ranging between 1,600 and 2,500 sq ft with 100% access for disabled customers. Target locations include Bexley, Clapham, Fulham, Finchley, Edmonton, Tottenham, and Wandsworth.

Ruth Blazye, executive director of retail and communities at Scope, said: “Our research shows people are visiting charity shops more than ever as rising inflation and soaring energy prices mean many people have less money in their pocket for clothes and homewares. This has prompted people to discover the value, variety and sense of community to be found at Scope charity shops.”
