Gateshead Charity Helping Households Save on Weekly Payment Finance
Foundations Furniture is helping households to save hundreds of pounds by offering ethical, affordable weekly payment options on new furniture, electricals and appliances in partnership with NEFirst Credit Union and The Gateshead Housing Company.
On average, households are saving over £2000 each. One household saved over £4000 by choosing to shop with Foundations rather than weekly payment schemes on the high street that are becoming notorious for over charging their customers.
There are calls for better regulations of weekly payment schemes but until then, Foundations is offering an affordable solution.
Taking the example of a Beko Fridge/Freezer, weekly payments are lower, and therefore on just one product, households can save around £100 (more if additional compulsory cover is requested by the high street stores!)
