Sunshine Scooters will launch the venture in Strait Bargate on Saturday, August 1.

It has taken on the unit previously occupied by Pandora; the jewellery retailer was due to close after more than five years in the town on March 28 but shut a week early when the coronavirus lockdown hit.

Sunshine Scooters was established in 2018.

Managing director Charlie Crawt described it as a ‘caring mobility business with the aim of providing mobility to those who need it most’.

“Our company is built on customer service, and will always go above and beyond to ensure our customers receive the best customer experience possible,” Charlie said.”

“We will be stocking a large range of mobility scooters, power chairs, wheelchairs, walking aids, rise and recliner chairs, and daily living aids.

“We will also be offering the following services: repairs and servicing of all mobility equipment, battery replacements, mobility equipment insurance, warranty and breakdown recovery, part exchanges, park and sell, and mobility equipment hire.”

The shop in Strait Bargate will be the business’s first retail outlet outside of its Rochford base.

The company said it was attracted to Boston by the strength of its high street and market and a demand it perceived in the area for a business of its type.

During the opening weekend, free goodies and the chance to win money off items in the shop will be available.

Pandora was approached by the Standard regarding its store closure, but at the time of going to press had not yet issued a comment.
