Welcome to Emsleys’ pop up swap shop!

We’re delighted to be hosting a pop up swap shop at our Crossgates office throughout December. We’ve been looking for ways to reduce our business’s impact on the environment, so we decided a swap shop would be a great way to involve our local community.

Our swap shop will launch on Tuesday 3rd December from 10am – 3pm. 

The idea is simple:

  • Swap an item for another of a similar value;
  • Donate any unwanted items; or
  • Buy from our shop.

By encouraging individuals to swap, donate or buy second hand goods, we’re hoping to reduce demand on our planet’s resources and minimise the amount of waste sent to landfill… one small step at a time.

Any funds raised from sales in the shop will be donated to our charity of the year Alzheimer’s Society and local community hub St Vincent’s Support Centre.

If you have any items you wish to donate, please drop them off at our Crossgates branch on Austhorpe Road during office opening hours (Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm). We hope to see you there!
