Better for low income families

Bulky Bobís shops provide thousands of ďpre-lovedĒ furniture items at great prices to low-income families

  • ďPre-lovedĒ furniture helps families to create a home and to avoid going into debt
  • Customers referred to us by a network of support agencies receive discounts and free delivery
  • Bulky Bobís gives essential emergency furniture items to help people in crisis situations
  • Partner agencies, such as Citizens Advice Bureau, provide in-store help to our customers

One of the fundamental aims of Bulky Bobís is to provide high quality, low priced Ďpre-lovedí furniture to low income families. For many Bulky Bobís customers, the only alternative would be purchasing new furniture on high interest, long-term credit. Bulky Bobís parent charity has been involved in the distribution of furniture to those in need for more than 20 years.

Bulky Bobís furniture stores are pleasantly appointed and well run, offering a range of discounts to those in receipt of benefit and also manage the free distribution of furniture to families in crisis. Bulky Bobís also partners with advice organisations to provide help and support to our customers on a range of issues including employment, housing, debt, health and benefits advice.

Bulky Bobís works with local support organisations to ensure that essential furniture items are available free of charge to people in crisis, such as families fleeing domestic violence, young people leaving care and ex-homeless people.

Bulky Bobís also works with other furniture and white goods projects on a local and national level. These partnerships may see Bulky Bobís giving some or all of the reusable furniture to a local project to augment their supplies and make them more sustainable.

  • "Bulky Bob’s store is a place where customers with not a lot of money to spend can buy really good furniture. To low-income shoppers Bulky Bob’s means choice, quality and most importantly it’s about making your money go further and staying out of debt."
