In the Kilo-Shop Hamburg Altona, the German Red Cross sells high-quality second-hand goods at kilo prices.
As the name suggests, you pay a predetermined low price per kilo. If that’s too much: You can also buy only half a kilo. In addition, there is a one-euro area where you can purchase high-quality clothing for only one euro.
Shopping for a good cause
At the same time, you are not just doing your own wallet some good: All of the shop’s revenue goes to charity. In addition, a great amount of the clothing donations received by the DRK is transferred directly to needy persons in charity shops. Clothing that is less appropriate to fulfilling specific needs as well as quantities over those necessary are sold in the Kilo-Shop.
