Second-hand furniture shop Cambridge Re-Use opens its door to all




Cambridge Re-Use has opened its doors to enable everyone to shop at its store.

The charity, which sells quality second-hand furniture, was previously open only to those on low incomes.

Manager Cara Moorey said: “We have everything from a wide range of furniture to paintings, books, household items, curtains and bric-a-brac - everything to do with furnishing the home. The stock changes on a daily basis.

“The charity was founded 30 years ago as Cambridge Sofa purely for people on low incomes who were struggling to furnish their homes. Now anyone can buy from us but we are still discounted from members.”

Items, which are all donated from residents in the area, have a member and non-member price. For non-members, the shop offers the value you would expect from a charity shop.

Open Monday to Saturday, from 10am to 4pm, the shop can be found at Unit H, The Paddocks, 347 Cherry Hinton Road CB1 8DH.
