About SOFA Project
Named from the acronym to Shift Old Furniture Around, 'SOFA' (as the charity is more usually known) collects good quality furniture and appliances from local households and businesses. The SOFA Project operates in the area formerly known as Avon, with headquarters in West St, Old Market. We collect household furniture and appliances from households on a daily basis. The items are brought back to our premises, and in the case of electrical appliances fully refurbished, before being made available at a low a price as possible in our retail outlets. These can then be delivered to the new owners.
Hi, my name is Ian Rowlands
I have been the Retail Manager of SOFA Project for eight years.The great thing about working for SOFA Project is the people, both those we work with and also the customers that we help.
It is enormously gratifying to see customers come into our shops at the Broadwalk Centre in Knowle and our main branch at West Street on Old Market and to be able to show them the range of furnishings we sell and, because of our connections with leading manufacturers, the selection of high quality, fully guaranteed domestic appliances that we can also offer at unbeatable prices.
SOFA Project has always aimed to provide a first class service to all our customers, from advising and helping them find what they require, through to arranging deliveries and, if required, installations. SOFA Project has grown over the years because it has always placed people first. We have no shareholders, pay no dividends, our role is simply to help serve the people of Bristol so I look forward to meeting you soon in our shops.
