Homelessness charity Emmaus Mossley has unveiled a brand-new music, books and media shop within its Secondhand Superstore.

Emmaus Mossley’s new Sound & Vision area is filled with second-hand vinyl LPs and singles, CDs and cassette tapes, books, magazines, DVDs, Blu-ray discs, computer games, music equipment and memorabilia.

The area has been transformed by Emmaus community members using reclaimed materials and the building’s original features.

Hazel Hodkinson, Retail Manager at Emmaus Mossley, said: “Our new Sound & Vision area has been a labour of love for our community over the past few months and was in the planning for some time. We were delighted to share it with supporters at our Spring Sale event and the reaction from visitors was fantastic.”

“We’re seeing more and more people fall in love with charity shopping and that includes an increase in younger people buying second-hand vinyl, CDs and books. We wanted to create a new area to showcase these brilliant items and add to what is already an interesting and vibrant shopping destination.”

Emmaus Mossley supports people who have experienced homelessness by providing them with a home, companionship, tailored support and work opportunities. At Emmaus, people are given the opportunity for a fresh start, gaining skills and work experience alongside training and personal development.

The new Sound & Vision area can be found on the first floor of Emmaus Mossley’s Secondhand Superstore. All proceeds raised within the Secondhand Superstore go to support the Emmaus Mossley charity and the people who live there.
