Home Basics are delighted to be opening their doors again on Monday 3rd May in a fantastic new warehouse on Croft Road, Hawick. There are great treats in store for customers too, not least a huge sale on quality household items.
Home Basics Hawick have been busy over the last few weeks moving to new premises on Croft Road, just opposite the old store. The team are excited to welcome back customers to the impressive warehouse which promises to expand the in store showroom and offer more great reuse deals. The team remain passionate about preventing waste and working with communities to find ways of giving quality household items a new home.
Home Basics are also delighted to announce a partnership with Recycle Your Electricals. This crucial project offers the perfect opportunity to increase capacity to reuse more electricals and work together across local communities to responsibly dispose of unwanted electrical items. Broadening the product range and services deepens relationships with local authorities while supporting targets for Scotland in the effort to become a zero waste society.
The new warehouse and increased capacity also keeps the organisation in a strong position to serve those most in need. In today’s economy with challenges we have all faced over the last 18 months, many more of us are finding it harder to keep life and finances in balance. They also offer a loyalty card for all customers which is available to everyone, in addition to their discount scheme for those on means tested benefits. Similarly changing times means organisations are having to adapt their ways of working, offering different services for their supporters. Home Basics are working hard to ensure their services adapt to the needs of customers in the coming months and seek to offer an appointment and click and collect service.
Donations of working electricals, quality furniture and household items are most welcome. Generosity of donors is vital for them to operate a self-sufficient organisation and they are thankful to all their donors and grant giving partners for their support in helping the move towards a more circular economy.
Huge thanks and recognition are due to the Home Basics Hawick team, kind volunteers among that team and the relentless hard work they have all triumphed over the few months. Home Basics offers local employment and volunteer opportunities within the charity sector whilst changing behaviours for us all to put protecting the environment on our personal agenda.
