The popular 2ReUse Recycling social enterprise project has introduced furniture sales at The Trading Post store on Peterhead’s Marischal Street.
The new retail element focussing on recycled furniture, operates alongside the successful trading by local crafters, traders and artisans.
A key element of 2ReUse’s social remit is to divert unwanted material from landfill and parent company Peterhead Projects Limited is delighted to welcome the resource to the town centre.
Brenda Campbell, manager of 2ReUse, said: “I am really excited about bringing our range of furniture to a wider audience who might not be able to visit our thriving operation up at Berryden Road.
“The people of Peterhead are really getting behind our mission to divert unwanted furniture and household items from landfill, so much so that this second outlet has become a necessity.
“As always I would remind all our customers – old and new alike – that buying recycled, reused goods doesn’t mean second best – it’s about enjoying quality goods and giving them a new lease of life in your home, while protecting our environment.”
Meanwhile, local crafters and traders are gearing up for what should be a bumper Christmas trading down at Marischal Street.
Peterhead Projects development manager Ken Duncan said: “We remain staunchly loyal to our crafters and traders who bring an extra sales element to the town. We hope they will enjoy bumper sales this festive season which will be bolstered by the arrival of furniture sales and additional footfall at The Trading Post.”
Brenda added: “We would like to remind anyone freshening up their homes for Christmas, to bear our community project in mind when they are considering replacing tables, chairs, sofas and beds.
“Not only will you be diverting tonnage from landfill, you will be helping to support future community projects in Peterhead and surrounding area.”
She continued: “We have an array of bric-a-brac, books, fashion items from children to adults including handbags, shoes and jewellery at our Berryden Road store.
“We encourage households to remember us when older, unused toys are being replaced by the latest Christmas favourites.”
