Award-winning charity the Big Help Project is challenging high-interest retail outlets with the opening of their new flagship Homes with Style store in Derby Road, Huyton.
The new store will offer customers an alternative to the traditional rent-to-own market, giving people the opportunity to purchase a wide range of household products at competitive interest rates.
A unique partnership, including the Big Help Project, Knowsley Council, Co-op Electricals and local credit unions, will see credit provided at affordable rates, with no hidden charges and no compulsory warranties.
The store will also be an outlet for Community RePaint, retailing recycled paint to suit all budgets.
Executive chair of the Big Help Project Cllr. Peter Mitchell said: “We are delighted and proud to be bringing our first Homes with Style store to Huyton.
“When people pay high interest rates for household goods, they have little left to pay for essentials such as rent, heating and food.
“It is simply unacceptable for children to be hungry or cold because their parents are paying extortionate prices for televisions, fridges, cookers or furniture.
“Our unique partnership with the Co-op and local credit unions enables us to offer a fantastic range of top-quality household brands to our customer and save them hundreds of pounds at the same time.”
CEO of the Big Help Project Dr Barry Cooper explained: “This store represents an exciting new phase for the Big Help Project, giving people in the local community an opportunity to furnish their home through an ethical credit model with competitive interest rates, no hidden charges or compulsory extras, and a repayment structure that rewards early repayment and sensible borrowing.”
The store will be opening with a formal opening ceremony on Thursday, December 8 at 11am to be attended by the Mayor of Knowsley Cllr. Frank Walsh, Leader of Knowsley Council Cllr. Andy Moorhead and local dignitaries and friends of the Big Help Project.
