Charity Super.Mkt is opening its latest pop-up shop at Gloucester Quays this March 2024.

The UK's first ever multi-charity shopCharity Super.Mkt, is bringing its next pop-up selling pre-loved and vintage fashion to Gloucester Quays this March 2024.

The popular 'second-hand department store' concept — known for its previous pop-ups at London's Bond Street and St James's Quarter in Edinburgh — is opening in a 4,000 sq ft store at the High Orchard Street entrance to the Quays, opposite Crew Clothing, on Thursday 14 March 2024.

With a collection of second-hand clothing and accessories curated from various UK charities, including Gloucestershire-based Longfield Hospice, National Star and The Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, shoppers can browse everything from vintage denim to sports and streetwear throughout the 10-week-long pop-up.

Charity Super.Mkt was launched last year to make a positive contribution to society, raise vital funds for various causes and actively reduce carbon emissions by avoiding new production and supply chains.

Maria Chenoweth and Wayne Hemingway, co-founders of Charity Super.Mkt, said: 'Charity Super.Mkt has proved in its first year that second-hand charity fashion can sit comfortably with high street and designer brands.

'From some of the UK’s busiest shopping centres to world-renowned streets such as London’s Bond Street, Charity Super.Mkt has matched the turnover, brought in new customers and increased footfall.

'Now we move onto Gloucester Quays and are looking forward to working in a new city and welcoming its residents to experience charity retail in a way they have never seen it before.'

Paul Carter, asset director at Peel L&P which owns Gloucester Quays, added: 'Charity Super.Mkt will be a fantastic addition to Gloucester Quays.

'Pre-loved fashion is a sector that is expanding quickly and it sits naturally within an outlet environment. They’ll slot right in and will absolutely appeal to our dedicated customer base.'

Rachael Abi Rached, head of retail at Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, commented: 'We’re thrilled to be joining Gloucester’s first ever multi-charity shop alongside a range of fantastic charities, contributing to Charity Super.Mkt’s mission of reducing carbon emissions through second-hand fashion.

'Shopping our pre-loved goods is a vital source of income to ensure that our service can continue to reach and treat those who need it most in north Gloucestershire.'

Anyone hoping to get first pick of the items can head to Charity Super.Mkt's launch party from 5pm to 8pm on Thursday 14 March 2024.
