What is Charity Super.Mkt?

Wayne Hemingway and Maria Chenoweth at Charity Super.MktCharity Super.Mkt, the UK’s first multi-charity shop, is coming to Bristol this summer and Brandon has been chosen to take part!

Opening in the former Hollister store in Cabot Circus from Tuesday, 8 July, until Sunday, 27 August, Brandon will be popping-up from 20 July until the end of October.

Charity Super.Mkt is the brainchild of Red or Dead founder, Wayne Hemingway, and Maria Chenoweth, CEO of TRAID.

They launched in Kings Cross, London, with a pop-up store in January and following phenomenal success, are now taking the concept on a tour of the UK.

Charity Super.Mkt’s mission is to offer the best, new, sustainable, and affordable fashion from multiple charity retailers under one roof in a landmark city centre retail location.

Wayne and Maria explain: "Charity Super.Mkt is a concept for social and environmental good, where people can shop the best of charity retail all in one place. A mix of household names and local favourites, brought together as a purposeful collective.

"The aim is to put charity retail in previously inaccessible locations, creating opportunities for charities to raise their profiles, reach new audiences, educate landlords about the value of the sector, and generate income."

What does this mean for Brandon?

Petra Littlefair, Brandon Retail Manager, said: "Everyone in the Brandon retail team is super excited about this brilliant opportunity. We are only a small chain (with mighty ambitions!) and to be able to trade alongside, and learn from, charities like TRAID or Marie Curie is a dream come true.

"Apart from our focus on inclusivity and diversity by offering paid and unpaid employment opportunities to people of all abilities, Brandon shops have always focussed on promoting the importance of pre-loved fashion, recycling, and sustainability. The Charity Super.Mkt pop-up is an amazing way for us to do this!

"And of course, we are hoping to raise much-needed funds for Brandon, so we can continue supporting children, young people, and adults with learning disabilities and autism to live their lives the way they choose."

When and where will the shop be?
