We’re excited to announce the opening of our first ever superstore in Alfreton, Derbyshire which has been transformed from a former Aldi supermarket. ‘The Hanger’ is not only our first ever superstore butthe first of its kind, complete with café and children’s play area. It will allow customers to experience the great stock we have on offer, including pre-loved;

Not content with 56 shops across 5x counties, our all-encompassing store is officially due to “land” in the new year and will allow people young and old to come and help support the amazing work we do as a charity to save lives across Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Rutland, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire.



The new store will not only have ‘The Landing Pad’ café, children’s play area, but also indoor and outdoor seating, multiple changing rooms and of course, rails of gorgeous items waiting to be found by new owners.

Planning a visit? Here are the opening hours of our shop and donation station;

Monday: 9am – 6pm
Tuesday – Thursday: 9am – 8pm
Friday & Saturday: 9am – 6pm
Sunday: 9.30 – 4pm


The experience of shopping is changing, and we’re evolving how people see charity shops and change the perceptions that pre-loved items are still perfect for new homes.



We need donations to make all of our stores a success so our new superstore will have a donation station to make dropping off items quick and easy. We will also be providing free furniture collection over the coming months so you can help keep our shelves stocked without lifting a finger.

Your old stuff gives new hope

Your unwanted clothes, bags and shoes can help keep us flying. Just drop them off at our nearest clothing bank to you – it couldn’t be simpler! Our donation station has the same opening times as our store, so you can drop and shop all at once!
