Worthing Council has given backing for the Greenhouse Charity Superstore in Meadow Road Depot, Worthing to expand to meet the high level of public support for the Guild Care charity superstore outlet.

The furniture and warehouse shop is run by Guild Care, which has been caring for the Worthing community for nearly 90 years.

Each year over 3,000 local people and their families will be supported by Guild Care’s services which aim to reduce social isolation, loneliness and social stigma around learning disabilities, older people and dementia.

The approved plans will see an expansion of the store’s floor plan into a neighbouring warehouse unit to meet demand.

The additional warehouse space is currently vacant, and classed as being for general industrial use. The approved planning permission will see this space reclassified to a commercial premises in order that it can find use as part of the existing charity superstore. 

Adam Rider, Director of Retail at Guild Care, said: “We’re really excited to have been given the go ahead to proceed with making our charity superstore even bigger and better. The Greenhouse is already an amazing place to visit, with an ever-changing range of value for money items, from furniture and electrical goods, to toys, clothes, household items and sports equipment. The expansion will make it the largest charity shop in Sussex with circa 20,000 square ft, and one of the largest in the UK.

“As a charity, every penny of the revenue from our shops is reinvested back into our services and facilities.”
