Storeroom2010 is an independent furniture re-use charity, operating without the benefits of statutory funding.  Situated on the Isle of Wight, Storeroom is in an area which suffers disproportionally high unemployment and child poverty compared to many other areas in the UK.  Storeroom2010 enables impoverished and disadvantaged families to be able to affordably furnish their homes, thereby improving their quality of life.

When referred by statutory and voluntary agencies, customers who are in need benefit from a discount on many of the already very reasonably priced items at Storeroom.

All the furniture you see at Storeroom has been donated by Island residents, providing affordable furnishing to those who cannot afford to purchase new.  Furniture re-use also minimises impact on the environment as a smaller amount of bulky items are disposed of at our landfill site.   Storeroom2010 enables Island residents to recycle, help their community and their local environment too.

Keeping Storeroom2010 open to everyone who would benefit from affordable furniture is our main priority.  We are often asked where the money from shop sales goes to?  Well, it enables us to be here for you all, we still have to pay the bills!  It also goes towards our Community Project, The Cowes Men’s Shed, located in premises adjacent to Storeroom at 25,26 Somerton Industrial Park, Cowes, PO31 8PA.

In a nutshell the purpose of Storeroom2010 charity and its objectives are threefold: –

  • The prevention and relief of poverty by offering donated furniture and household goods at minimal cost to people in need
  • The protection and preservation of the environment by encouraging re-use of donated furniture and household goods
  • The relief of unemployment for the benefit of the public in such ways as may be thought fit including the provision of training, employment, work experience and volunteering opportunities

Our community has often heard of us through word of mouth, but also from our adverts placed regularly on Wightbay.  Why not go to www.wightbay.com to see some of the many items we currently have for sale?  From their home page just search for Storeroom2010.

We are situated at 1 Mariners Way, Cowes, PO31 8PD (on the Somerton Estate opposite the ALDI supermarket and just along from Cowes Park & Ride) where we have a warehouse and shop.  There is FREE parking right outside our front door.  We are open to everyone!

Our office is open 10-4, Tuesday to Saturday for your calls on 01983 298679.  Our ansafone is available out of hours.

We would not be here without the help and support from our volunteers, local people and businesses.  Thank you all.
