LIFE opens temporary second hand shop in Antwerp
With this initiative, Oxfam continues its policy of using temporary shops to take the initiative in the fight against poverty. Previously, a pop-up was opened in the Antwerp district of Seefhoek and in Anderlecht. Several other locations are under consideration.
The property on which the shop is located is part of the estate that LIFE took over from the Van Noten family last summer. The adjoining properties are located on Steenhouwersvest, Kammenstraat and Vrijdagmarkt – for decades these served as a base for ‘t Meuleken: the family business active in ready-to-wear, tailor-made suits and uniforms. The 7000m2 site will be redeveloped with catering, retail, housing and co-working or co-living.
