With three very unique stores, The Brick offers a variety of items at each of our retail sites including furniture, electricals, clothing, homeware, children’s toys and nursery items.
It is only with the generous support of the local community that we can continue to run and expand our retail department within the borough, providing quality new and used items at affordable prices; not only this but we save thousands of items every year from ending up in landfill by accepting donations at the shop door or via our collection service.
Don’t be fooled, the retail shops aren’t just your good old local charity shops, they are also vital in providing welfare support to people in our community. In partnership with Wigan council, we provide ‘welfare packages’, which can include sofa’s, dining tables and chairs, beds and much more! This helps the move into own accommodation that much easier and makes a house much more like a home. But, we don’t just stop at furniture welfare, thanks to the regular donations of clothing we receive, we are able to provide clothing free of charge to those who are vulnerable in our community, this may include people who are rough sleeping, people who have fled domestic violence, or even people we are supporting to find work too.
The Brick prides itself on it’s position in the community and the shops are just a small part of that, however they provide much needed support to lots of different people, and provide a safe welcoming space for local people.
