A Campbeltown ‘pre-loved’ furniture shop has been recognised for complying with Scotland’s national re-use quality standard.

Kintyre Reuse Hub at 64 Longrow, operated by Kintyre Recycling Limited which employs many people with barriers to working, has achieved Revolve accreditation after two years of hard work from staff and volunteers.

Revolve is a quality standard for second-hand stores in Scotland and is awarded to stores that meet high standards in safety, cleanliness and service, encouraging shoppers to shop second-hand first.

To celebrate Kintyre Reuse Hub’s success, the shop is holding an open morning from 10am to 1pm on Wednesday September 22 where refreshments will be on offer.

The shop will not be selling items at that time but staff wish to invite all its valued customers and any new ones who have not visited the shop before to celebrate with them.

‘We would also like to extend this to all our volunteers and others that have helped us on this journey to make our shop such a success,’ said Kintyre Recycling Limited business manager Amanda Thorburn.

‘After 22 years of being involved with Kintyre Recycling, this is one of my proudest achievements and I know it will carry on being a success after I leave with all the potential new opportunities.’
