Second-hand clothes sales on the rise
Red Cross second-hand stores across the country saw significant increases in sales last year
 

Second-hand clothes are becoming increasingly popular, at least judging by the sales in the Red Cross stores.

The main store in Tórshavn’s Stiðjagøta (pictured above) enjoyed record-high sales last year, with average daily sales of almost DKK 29,000 and total 2021 sales of DKK 1,239,000.

Sales in this store totalled DKK 866,000 in 2020 and DKK 974,000 in 2019.

Children’s clothes made up about 27 percent of all items sold in the main store last year.

The store in Bryggjubakki, Tórshavn, also saw a big spike in sales last year, going from DKK 85,000 in 2020 up to DKK 138,000 last year.

Red Cross’ bookstore sales exceeded DKK 160,000 in 2021, which is a slight increase on the previous year.

The Red Cross second-hand store in Vágur, Suðuroy, reported total sales of DKK 127,500 last year, which is well above the amounts from previous years.
