New Charity Megastore Opening In Gateshead

Daisy Chain Megastore will stock the most diverse range of donated products ever seen on the high street. From mainline brands sold at low prices to a premium concession range that will house high end labels such as Balmain, Ralph Lauren and Versace, there’s something for every shopper.

A new addition to Teesside-based charity, the Megastore is an impressive 23,000 sq. feet, making it the largest of its kind in the UK. The store provides an ethical way to shop within a budget, without compromising on style and quality.

This long-awaited department store will feature exceptional products at affordable prices. The money you spend supports some of the most marginalised individuals in the region. It’s guilt-free shopping in its purest form – doing good for the planet and the community.

With sustainability high on Daisy Chain’s agenda, the organisation is also committed to the advancement of slow fashion by launching its own clothing brand, Neuthread.

As pioneers of the project, the team is creating high-end apparel from unusable, donated materials and textiles, reducing carbon emissions, and saving water, energy, and chemicals, resulting in less pollution.

“In the charity sector all organisations are striving to gain maximum income from all of their funding streams, and when it comes to retail they often go small, and launch online.

“We are excited to be branching out into something bravely different, offering the consumer the opportunity to shop live for premium brands – to be able to see and touch the product you’re going to buy, as well as see the real-world impact of the money you’re spending.

”There’s nothing else like this on the high street, we’re sure of that!”, – Neeraj Sharma, CEO at Daisy Chain, has said.

Profits made at the store are ploughed back into frontline autism and neurodiversity services across the region and beyond.

From being a shopper to donating pre-loved belongings / arranging the collection of sofas and large furniture items and joining the team as a volunteer, there are so many ways to get involved and we encourage every one of them.
