Hi everyone! Just a quick update on what’s happening with Preloved Kilo right now! At present we have no further details regarding our events, unfortunately it’s still not safe for them to resume in their usual format at this time and staff and customer health is our priority. If you have tickets for a postponed event, rest assured they will still be valid once we do return.
However, we have been inundated with requests from small businesses and vintage traders who are looking to source stock so they can continue to trade themselves, and as such we’re working on plans to open a fixed pop-up Preloved Kilo retail shop in the very near future! We hope this new venture will enable lots of small independent businesses much like ourselves to continue to operate through these wildly uncertain times, and for our public customers who have missed out on their vintage fix, you’re welcome to pop in and see what treasures you can find too! All will remain at our usual rate of £15 per kilo, and you can expect to find the exact same quality stock as you’d find at an event.
Our new base will be located in the heart of Sheffield city centre and it will function in a similar format to our events - though we will be adhering to strict regulations to ensure the safety of staff and customers. Staff will be required to wear masks, hand sanitiser will be provided, regular cleaning will take place throughout the day with deep cleans after we close and social distancing will be strictly maintained throughout, with the number of people in store limited at any one time.
As you can imagine, these regulations would be incredible difficult to enforce in our temporary venues, and travelling the UK would further jeopardise the health of our staff. By operating from a fixed base, we can control the environment much more rigorously meaning we can offer peace of mind while you shop.
Again, we’ll be open to both trade and public customers, if you’re interested in further updates on the Preloved Kilo Sheffield shop, please register your interest on the form on this page and you’ll be the first to be contacted regarding opening, stock and other details.
Thanks again for your support.
