The charity shop will replace Blue Inc - a chain of fashion retail stores with units across the UK mainly in larger towns and cities - which closed in Northampton earlier this year after the company went into administration in December 2018.

The children's charity is has launched an urgent appeal for stock and volunteers to help run the store which will sell clothes, shoes, handbags, jewellery, accessories, household goods, books, CDs and DVDs.

The retail unit, which is currently empty, is across the precinct from Sports Direct and is next to the Scope charity shop which replaced a Poundland store and before that a 99p Store.
