New Brick charity shop opens in Leigh

 The Brick, celebrates the opening of its new charity shop in Leigh.


The special launch event took place on May 17th, bringing together staff, volunteers, and loyal customers to celebrate the reopening and to introduce the new location.


Gordon Macdonald, Reuse Manager at The Brick, expressed his excitement about the expansion, stating, ” We are delighted to be here on Bradshaw Gate in Leigh. Our remit is not just retail; it’s about encouraging upcycling and reuse from the donations coming into the charity to minimise waste as much as possible.”


The Brick’s Charity Shop in Leigh has garnered overwhelming support from the community. Macdonald acknowledged the dedication of their loyal Leigh customers, who would travel to Wigan to visit their Gidlow Lane charity shop after the unfortunate closure of their previous location. Now, with the new shop open, The Brick eagerly anticipates welcoming back their valued customers.


Spanning an impressive 1,200 square feet, the new shop offers a wide range of items, including clothes, furniture, home goods, and bric-a-brac. The strategic location on Bradshaw Gate places The Brick among 12 other charity shops, creating a vibrant environment where customers can enjoy a charity shop circuit, visiting each one in turn.


Macdonald emphasised the charity’s commitment to promoting re-use and providing affordable goods to the people of Leigh.


“We are really flying the flag for re-use and affordable goods for people in Leigh,” Macdonald stated proudly. “Everyone at The Brick is thrilled to be a part of this thriving community.”


With the expansion into Leigh, The Brick is actively seeking growth opportunities, aiming to open more shops and recruit additional staff members and volunteers.


Those interested in a career at The Brick or joining as a volunteer are encouraged to get in touch with The Brick to embark on this exciting journey.
