The Emmaus Mossley Secondhand Superstore is now temporarily closed due to the second national lockdown. For the latest update please visit our News section.


When you visit our Secondhand Superstore in Mossley, you will find two large floors packed with pre-loved items for sale including furniture, household goods, electrical appliances, clothes, books, music, bric-a-brac and much more.

We also have our own workshops where items are repaired, refurbished, upcycled or upholstered if necessary and electrical goods are checked. Please visit us and look around the our charity store to see what we have as new stock arrives daily.

Our Secondhand Superstore is central to what we do as it:

  • Provides meaningful work for the previously homeless people who live and work at Emmaus
  • Provides the money for the charity to operate without any government grant
  • Extends the life of your donated item, giving someone else the benefit of owning it and diverting it from landfill.

COVID-19 safety measures

To ensure the safety of our team and all visitors, we have carried out a risk assessment for reopening and put in place measures to minimise the risk of virus transmission. We ask that if you are showing any coronavirus symptoms or feel unwell in any way, please do not visit our Secondhand Superstore. When visiting, please follow the safety guidance, remember to bring a face mask and be patient as you may have to queue on entry.

What do we sell?

Our ground floor stocks a wide range of secondhand furniture and we have a whole room dedicated to clothes, textiles and bric-a-brac. Upstairs we also have a large area dedicated to books, CDs, DVDs and computer games.

Zimmerman’s Emporium area is stocked full of interesting vintage goods, vinyl records and retro items. It also has some great artwork on the walls, created by one of our former companions. See who you can spot on our famous mural… John Lennon, Jimmy Hendrix, Bob Dylan to name but a few!

At the end of our yard you will find the Scrap Shed which contains all manner of tools and DIY essentials. We also have a smaller Collectables Room which houses the extra special items that either have added value or a certain ‘uniqueness’ about them.
