Christmas Day At Charringtons

One of Stowmarket’s biggest shops has a revolutionary plan to open on Christmas Day and they won’t sell a thing. In fact Charringtons Furnishings will be giving stuff away!

After two years refurbishing and relaunching the giant store, new boss Cameron Kerr is throwing wide the doors to welcome the town’s old folk, the needy and the lonely for a free yuletide feast of food, fun and good company.

Cameron commented,

“I had a hard start in life and know what it is to go through tough times. But thanks to the help of some good people I’m now doing OK and really want to give something back.”

He added,

“The plan is to open up at 10am. There’ll be all the usual seasonal party snacks, a nourishing hot soup, lots of good chat, reminiscing and hopefully a sing-song or two. We’ve got three massive floors of furniture and room layouts so there’s plenty of room for people to sit back, relax and enjoy the day.”

For more information or to offer help contact Cameron, at the store in Charringtons Yard in Stowupland Street or by calling: 01449 675 845 //
