CHARITY SHOPS: Post-lockdown shopping
As non essential retail open their doors again, new research from disability equality charity Scope reveals the change in attitudes British adults have towards charity shops.
Their survey found that nearly two thirds of Liverpudlians think charity shops will become an essential part of how we shop post lockdown.
Scope found various reasons for the public's new-found desire to visit charity shops with 15 percent saying they'd be more likely to visit a charity shop than they would have before the pandemic.
With the temporary and permanent closure of many high street retailers, there is an overall appetite to see shops open again, more than half of the Liverpool public say they're looking forward to visiting charity shops after lockdown.
Scope's research found that people feel that charity shops are a vital part of their community something they're more considerate of since the pandemic. Phil and Sally are just two of the volunteers in Scope West Kirby.
During the last lockdown Scope said they saw losses of over £3million of sales. Despite this, they've continued to provide a lifeline for disabled people and their families, throughout the pandemic.
