Social enterprise department store celebrates 10th birthday

Sutton Coldfield-based department store, The ReUsers, celebrates ten years of trading this month.

The social enterprise, part of the JERICHO group, which prevents waste from entering landfill by providing used goods at cost-effective prices, uses its income to help people who face real and significant challenges in getting a job. These could include trauma, insufficient work experience, health & wellbeing needs, education barriers and communication challenges.

Since opening in 2013, a total of 1.3 million kilograms have been diverted enabling over 130 individuals to be supported including 80 young people as apprentices and 16 survivors of modern slavery.

Richard Craythorn, ReUsers Manager said “Over the last 10 years, I have watched the ReUsers grow from an idea to a fully-fledged social enterprise with incredible positive social and environmental outcomes. I wish to thank all of our regular loyal customers, neighbours, partners and supporters for getting behind this project and helping our team to achieve such a positive success. I must also pay homage to the wonderful team who work at ReUsers, day in and day out, whatever the weather. Without their hard work and commitment, ReUsers would have stayed as just a great idea.”

Richard Beard, JERICHO CEO, said “The ReUsers is very much the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the JERICHO family of social enterprises – it continues to deliver unrivalled levels of social, environmental and economic impact and I’m extremely proud of all that Rich and his team have achieved over the last 10 years”

To celebrate ten incredible years, The ReUsers will be holding a 20% off store-wide sale between Monday 13th and Friday 17th February.
