Exciting plans for New Ableworld stores Coming Soon!

This entry was posted in General April 27, 2020

We are extremely excited to announce that we are planning to open 3 new mobility stores by Autumn 2020, so you may have a new mobility superstore coming to a town near you very soon. Here at Ableworld we are committed to helping customers remain independent and provide affordable mobility equipment and a no pressure approach when helping our customers find the right equipment. We are really pleased that our 3 new stores will mean we can help more customers around the UK.

We are expanding on the South Coast of England with a new store in Blackfield, Hampshire. Blackfield Mobility and Stairlifts Coming Soon

This store is a second store for one of our existing business partners, who already own Ableworld Southampton, across the water. The new store, next to Tesco express will stock the whole Ableworld mobility range as well being able to install, service and repair Stairlifts and through the floor Home Lifts that Ableworld Southampton offer. Owners Steven and Jeff commented, “We are really excited about our new store. We have a fantastic Company with lots of strengths including a strong and loyal team of staff. Our new store is currently being refurbished, hopefully with a view to be able to open very soon.”

As well as a new store in the South, we are also opening another store on the outskirts of Manchester, in Hyde. This store is with Business Partner Barry Pearson, who is adding a 6th Ableworld Mobility store to his existing 5 stores in St Helens, Salford, Wigan, Wavertree and Southport. The new store is located on a retail park alongside B&M and a Food Warehouse, part of the Iceland group. The large store will, again, stock the whole Ableworld range of mobility equipment, as well as offering free advice from a team of fully trained staff. Located not far from our Stockport store, we have a team of friendly, local engineers supporting the area for any Stairlift requirements including repairs, installations, servicing and Buy back options. Our stairlift team provide free advice and quotes with no obligation to purchase. We will now be able to offer assistance to more people in Manchester helping them to remain independent in the home they love. New Mobility store coming soon to Hyde Manchester

As well as some of our existing business partners expanding in their communities, we are also very pleased to welcome a new partner to Ableworld. We are still waiting for the property to complete the legal process, before we announce the actual location, but we are confident this will be finalised soon on a property in East London. We are really excited for our first store in the London area and hope it will be the first of many. As always within London, finding the right property at the right price is always a challenge but we have found a suitable store, in a great location. The new store will stock the majority of the Ableworld range for customers to browse offering a wider variety of mobility aids than any other mobility retailer in the area. Our new store will also have fully trained engineers able to install, service and repair stairlifts, as well as mobility scooters, wheelchairs and other equipment.

It is a challenging time at the moment and we hope as much as everyone else that things will improve soon. Our aim as always is to help as many people as possible to remain independent and we are committed in continuing to support as many people as we can. We will announce opening dates as soon as possible.

Sometimes life moves so fast it is hard to stop and evaluate one moment in time. Coronavirus has impacted everyone’s lives more than anyone could ever have imagined but I am sure many of you will agree it has given a lot of people the opportunity to find that time to concentrate on the important things in their lives and keeping in touch with friends and family. Ableworld Coronavirus Thank You

As a company, we have also been lucky to be given this time, and it has highlighted a few key points we often think but don’t often have the time to say, so we want to take this opportunity to shout it from the rooftops.

We have an amazing team of dedicated staff working at Ableworld. Everyone has taken steps to help our Company through a situation we never could have planned for. We have a committed team of people still helping customers in stores. We also have a number of engineers, drivers and our specialist team who are working alongside people to ensure they get the correct mobility equipment safely. Supporting our stores are a reduced workforce at Head Office, ensuring customers can get the answers they need right now. To all of these people we want to express our gratitude for continuing – Thank you!

We have had to furlough a number of team members to ensure we can comply to the social distancing guidelines and also to guarantee the future of our business, we would also like to thank you for taking this option.

We are committed to our customers. Your happiness and wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do and our staff are ensuring we continue to offer customers that support through the hardest of times.

We would also like to thank you, our customers. You have all been amazing. Not only are you staying in as we have been advised, you are keeping in touch and finding new ways of adapting to change, thank you.

We would like to say a huge thank you to our suppliers. The majority of our suppliers are still processing orders, ensuring we can get mobility equipment our customers need. They are picking up the telephone and checking in to make sure we are all OK, and are bending over backwards to offer as much help and support as they can, so we can help others – it really is appreciated, thank you.

As well as these, we want to offer our heart felt thank you out to everyone on the front line dealing with this pandemic. There are so many people who are selflessly looking after others to ensure we work together to fight this – you really are all superhero’s in everyone’s eyes!

We miss you all and will look forward to seeing you all as soon as we possibly can. In the mean time if there is anything, we can help you with please don’t hesitate to get in touch with your nearest store.

Stay safe and take care of each other!

Mike Williams. MD
