Charity Retail News Round-Up – Week Commencing 09.05.22

Each week we share with you our pick of the best stories on charity retail, shopping secondhand and the circular economy from the UK, Ireland and around the world.

We’re also now going to add links to relevant Charity Retail Learning courses associated with each article to help you implement some of the ideas we’re sharing

Here’s our pick from the past 7 days – with lots of news from the USA this week

You could even buddy up with other charity shops on your street and promote your whole area.
