Visited the new British Heart Foundation department store in Kingston yet? The store, formerly Primark and BHS before that, in Alderman Judge Mall opened its doors on 31st July. At 17,000sq foot it's the largest of the charity's stores and it's expected to be at this central Kingston location for 2 years, ahead of the Eden Walk regeneration project.
The shop has Home and Fashion departments offering a range of good quality furniture,
homeware, clothing, accessories and books at budget-friendly prices.
Heart information hub
Apart from raising funds for this amazing charity, the store will also be a local community hub, offering shoppers valuable heart health information, running CPR training sessions, and creating retail jobs and volunteering opportunities for people of every age – from school leavers to retirees.
Every item sold will help the BHF to raise vital funds for research into beating heart disease, including that undertaken at Kingston University to improve treatments for heart attacks. It will also help to fund the continued rollout of CPR training and public defibrillators in Kingston and support local heart patient groups.
The store is located at 10 Alderman Judge Mall, Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey KT1 1BS.
