Glasgow Fort hosts Scotland’s first ever multi-charity fashion store



Scotland’s first ever multi-charity fashion store has opened its doors at the Glasgow Fort today, June 27.

Charity Super.Mkt will offer shoppers the opportunity to purchase second hand clothing supplied by seven Scottish and national charities including Cancer Research, Chest Heart Stroke Scotland, Havens Hospices, Marie Curie, Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice, Shelter and TRAID.

The pop up, founded by Wayne Hemingway and Maria Chenoweth, has already had phenomenal success in London and Reading, raising over £620,000 for UK charities.

Customers at the London store managed to get a hold of a variety of items from well known brands such as Ralph Lauren and Burberry.

From the two pop ups to date, 18,700kg of clothing has already been saved from going to landfill reducing the environmental impact of our clothes.

The store, which will be based between Mamas & Papas and Waterstones, will be full of great charity shop finds and have DJ’s playing every weekend.
