Our CT Furniture Peterlee store has moved. We opened a store in the town last year, but the lease expired and so we took it as the right time to relocate to bigger and better site.

Previously based at Howletch Retail Park the new store is in Castle Dene Shopping Centre, it will create numerous new volunteer opportunities and work placements, as well as the chance to restock with new furniture items.  

The new store based in Peterlee will bring quality pre-loved, vintage, antique and repurposed furniture to the town. It opened its doors on Friday 13th August and is the fourth CT Furniture based in the North East, with others based in Newcastle, Blyth and our newest store in Gateshead.

We’ve already caused quite a stir in the local Peterlee community, with the Mayor, Councillor Terry Duffy, visiting the previous store in October 2020. CT Furniture hope to continue their positive impact on local communities.

Paul Dodd, CT Furniture’s Retail and Business Development manager, said: “We are a national Charity that provides affordable high quality pre-owned furniture to the public. Our aim is to encourage furniture re-use and reduce items going to landfill by collecting re-usable furniture and electrical items free of charge from local residents..”

He continued: “We are delighted to be able to continue trading in Peterlee in our new premises. Our stores are stocked with items ranging from small electrical appliances through to beds, sofas, wardrobes all available at affordable prices, so helping individuals and families to furnish their homes.”

All surplus funds raised through the sale of donated furniture are used by the charity to help support its fleet of CT Passenger minibuses, who transport people with mobility issues or take those isolated for their shopping.

We are always looking for volunteer help from those who have time and are looking to make a difference in the local community. In return, volunteers gain work-based skills that can help when it comes to finding a job. There is also the opportunity to meet new friends and be part of something worthwhile.  

The new store is now open in Peterlee.
