New Revive Leeds Re-use shop
The purpose built Revive Leeds Re-use shop (tel. 0113 216 3310) is also situated at this site, and has it's own car park. Pedestrian access is via the gate from Evanston Avenue.
The re-use shop is the second to be developed in Leeds and is run by Revive Leeds, a community interest group made up of two local charities: SLATE and SVP. Any re-usable items such as furniture, working electrical items, clothing, bikes, toys, books, cds, bric-a-brac and other household items can be donated direct to the new Revive Leeds re-use shop, where donations can be sold at low prices and enjoyed by someone else.
The shop is open all year round, seven days a week, 9am to 3:30pm (GMT) and 9am to 5:30pm (BST) except for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
