The charity has ambitious plans to grow its chain of shops from 12 to 20 by 2015, opening two new shops every year. It opened its 13th store in Royal Wootton Bassett earlier this year and aims to open another later this year.
The new warehouse, secured through property consultants Alder King, provides the infrastructure to support the expansion programme, offering more storage and sorting space and improved recycling facilities for unsaleable items such as broken plastic toys, books, wood and metal.
Prospect took Unit 4 at the Business Park last year, also through Alder King, and has now taken the adjacent Unit 5 which provides 2,546 sq ft (237 sq m) of space on a three year lease.
The units benefit from eight allocated parking spaces each and a generous service yard area.
Charly Rich, head of retail at Prospect Hospice says: “The additional space at Wroughton Business Park is vital to allow us to deliver on our expansion programme and offers excellent modern accommodation in a location central to our catchment area.”
Alison Williams of Alder King added: “This unit was a natural fit for Prospect and perfectly meets its needs as it embarks on this major expansion plan.”
