How it works

The Empty Shop is a global charity initiative that encourages customers to bring clothes to the shop instead of taking them away.

The Empty Shop, invites shoppers to donate any item of clothing, bring it to The Empty Shop and hand it over to the shop assistant. The shop will be filled with donated clothes and mannequins beautifully styled with the items donated. Each night the shop will be emptied, leaving The Empty Shop ready to receive new donations again the following day.
