Can­cer char­ity opens its first ‘su­per­store’ in Wales

Bangor Mail - - NEWS -

CAN­CER Re­search UK’s first su­per­store in Wales opened this week in Holy­head.

The su­per­store, which at 5,000 sq ft is more than five times the size of a nor­mal Can­cer Re­search UK shop, started trad­ing last Tues­day.

Breast can­cer sur­vivor Jane Jones, from Anglesey, cut the rib­bon to of­fi­cially un­veil the store in Holy­head Retail Park.

Due to the size of the shop, there will much more on of­fer, from bikes to books, fur­ni­ture to elec­tri­cal goods.

Un­like smaller shops, the su­per­store will run a dis­count model, mean­ing many items will be £3 or less, with high-value prod­ucts iden­ti­fied with a golden ticket.

It’s part of a plan to meet cus­tomer de­mand for more ac­ces­si­ble stores with easy ac­cess and plenty of park­ing.

A spe­cial pri­vate room in the su­per­store will of­fer peo­ple the chance to phone the Can­cer Re­search UK nurse helpline and will in­clude seat­ing, an iPad and a large TV screen.

Ceri See­ley, from Anglesey, Can­cer Re­search UK’s store man­ager at the Holy­head su­per­store, said: “We are very ex­cited to be open­ing Can­cer Re­search UK’s first Welsh su­per­store in Holy­head and we are grate­ful to Jane for be­ing our VIP on the day, and open­ing the store.

“Hav­ing the ex­tra space means we are able to of­fer sup­port­ers ad­di­tional ser­vices, like the pri­vate in­for­ma­tion room with the nurses’ hot­line so cus­tomers will have di­rect ac­cess to in­for­ma­tion from our team of ded­i­cated nurses at Can­cer Re­search UK.”

More vol­un­teers are now needed to help run the new Holy­head su­per­store.

Any­one in­ter­ested is in­vited to call in to the shop.
