THE UK’S only charity shop department store opened just last week – and savvy Brits have already saved big.
CharitySuper.Mkt has launched in north London shopping mall Brent Cross and thrift fans say it is shopping heaven.
CharitySuper.Mkt in Brent Cross is the UK’s first Charity deptartment store
Ten charities feature in the store: TRAID, Havens Hospice, Barnado’s, Shelter, Cancer Research, Age UK, Marie Curie, Emmaus, SCT and All Aboard.
And one savvy shopper this week saved a whopping £285 on just one item.
Writer Alexandra Bullard says after digging through piles of garments a black blazer from L. K. Bennett caught her eye.
She snapped it up for just £14.99 – compared to the online price of £300.
And that’s not the only bargain she snapped up.
She wrote in MyLondon: “I also spotted a gorgeous leopard print dress from Ralph Lauren for only £12, and saw a yellow Polo Ralph Lauren hoodie for only £33.
“This is thrifting at its finest.”
The charity shop department store is only open until Saturday 25th February.
It comes after we told how shoppers at one of the UK’s most-expensive charity shops can browse through racks of designer clothes, with some costing a whopping £500.
Labels such as Armani and Chanel hang on the railings at the high-end thrift shop.
The budget-busting Mind store, nestled in London’s trendy Soho, even boasts a plush dressing room.
Luxury brands found at the charity shop, that supports mental health patients, is a world away from the usual M&S and Peacocks clobber in most stores of its type.
The London store had a £195 yellow jacket by Sies Marja for sale.
But the most expensive was a leather skirt by Chanel that will set you back a whopping £495, MyLondon reported.
