The Community Furniture Stores are a group of three charities which help people in need in their local community by collecting furniture for re-use.
Everyone is welcome to visit, browse and buy goods at affordable prices. Please click here to check out our store locations and opening times.
During 2018 the three stores have been able to reuse over 22,500 items of furniture, electrical appliances and other household items, preventing almost 500 tonnes of landfill waste, and helping over 10,000 households to make better homes.
Each store has a workshop that offers training, work experience and wellbeing opportunities. As well as basic furniture repairs electrical goods are tested, cleaned and repaired at York and the workshop at Selby makes a range of garden furniture reusing broken furniture and discarded wood from local hardware suppliers.
The workshop at the Scarborough store reupholsters chairs, and makes new craft goods.

We recently put a short video together featuring the work done by staff and volunteers at the York Store. Check out the video below.
Community Furniture Stores are members of the Community RePaint scheme which donates paint to community groups and sells to the public at very affordable prices. We are also part of the ReUse Network, a national network of organisations committed to recycling and reusing unwanted goods to protect the environment and make affordable, quality goods available to everyone.
