Total Reuse are working in partnership with new charity 'Impact Planet' to open pop up shops wherever they are offered access to empty retail spaces.
The first one is in St Helen's on Merseyside and is located in the former Topps Tiles store on the retail park along side the likes of Aldi and TK Maxx. The store will be open on Saturday and Sunday through July and August but it hoped that we may be able to open on week days as well. Anyone purchasing items can also organise same day delivery as one of the staff on duty will be a van driver with a van.
The unit also offers opportunities for local community groups to get involved. It's possible that local charities could run attic sales or similar events during the week or in the evenings to tie in with the trading hours of other stores on the retail park.
Total Reuse are also hoping to make contact with charities and community groups who work with those in need so that they can donate items to people who need them. If this idea works then the unit could also accept donations.
