How we're making a difference
Again this year many retailers will be trying to sell old stock of TVs and electrical equipment at heavily discounted prices, encouraging people to queue outside stores and fight their way to the best deals, trampling over all others that come in their way. Of course the ensuing chaos will be filmed by a conveniently placed TV crew, all with the intention of getting their chain on the predictable news reports.
We’ve decided to do something a bit more constructive, we will indeed be giving our customers a 20% discount on Black Friday and the weekend following but with every order over £30 we will donate much needed grocery items to the Newcastle West End Foodbank.
Michael Nixon, Newcastle West End Food Bank: “We are the busiest foodbank in the country, mainly because of the large areas of poverty we have here in the parts of the West End of Newcastle. More than ever people are under intense financial pressure and more people will be using food banks this winter. As the weather turns colder and people face increased heating bills the need will only grow.
The generosity of the people of Newcastle is amazing so we are encouraging people to give a little this Christmas to help families in need. With this generosity and help from local businesses like Ethical Superstore with their donation scheme, we want to make sure families are properly fed and don’t have to choose between whether they heat their home or properly feed their family.”
We hope by doing this not only will our customers get the chance to help the Newcastle West End Food Bank but we hope to encourage people to think about others and perhaps make a donation to their own local food bank to help those in need this Christmas. If just a fraction of the money spend on unnecessary items this Black Friday could go to a better cause this could make a huge difference to so many people who are struggling in the current tough times.
