Greater Manchester’s massive pop-up charity shop reduces ALL ITEMS to £3 for its final week

SO many bargains up for grabs.

Emily Sergeant Emily Sergeant - 22nd January 2024

The doors to Greater Manchester’s massive pop-up charity ‘department store’ are closing this week, and it’s launched an UNMISSABLE sale to celebrate.

In case you missed it, Charity Super.Mkt opened inside The Lowry Outlet shopping centre down at Quayside MediaCity back in November of last year, and during its extended 12-week run, it’s proved to be a huge success – having sold more than 8,000 items to the value of more than £64,000 over the last couple of months.

Over two tonnes of clothing has also been saved from landfill since the pop-up opened in Salford, as has more than 20,000 kilograms of CO2 emissions – which is apparently equivalent to travelling over 79,000 miles by car, 3.2 times around the world, or saving enough water to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

But sadly, the second-hand store’s time in Salford is coming to an end this week.

And so, in a bid to celebrate its success and to suitably “go out with a bang”, everything in the shop has been reduced for the final week of opening.


This means that, from now up until this Sunday (28 January), savvy shoppers have one last chance to bag themselves the bargain of the month, as the prices of all items have been slashed to just £3 each.

Some of the top picks you can get your hands on for only £3 this week include band tees, forgotten football tops, and all sorts of denim, as well a range of sports gear and players shirts recently-donated by Super League rugby club, Salford Red Devils

All proceeds from sales made this week will be donated to the charities involved with Charity Super.Mkt – including St Vincent de Paul, Traid, and All Aboard. 

“The success of Charity Super.Mkt has shown that there has been a real shift in consumer shopping habits,” commented Wayne Hemingway MBE, who is the co-founder of Charity Super.Mkt, as the £3 sale was announced.

“People making a concerted effort to shop more sustainably and with purpose, and Charity Super.Mkt facilitates that and more, allowing people to shop at reasonable prices while helping a good cause too.”


Mr Hemingway has insisted this “isn’t the end” of Charity Super.Mkt at MediaCity.

He continued: “We’re looking forward to returning this summer during We Invented the Weekend festival, and continuing to foster the sense of community support and charity that the North of England does so well.

“We’ve really showcased that fashion can be fun, affordable and fair to all.”
