What is Uptown?
Uptown is part of the Proper Job cooperative. Based in Chagford Square we sell a selection of quality donated items from the Proper Job Resource Centre, as well as repaired, restored and upcycled items from local crafts people. We stock a wide range of good quality and affordable pre-loved clothing, furniture, homewares, books and much more.
Our mission is to reduce waste, create jobs and volunteering opportunities, educate people on repairing, re-using and recycling and to prevent Chagford from losing its shop fronts. We live in a throwaway society and we are passionate about helping to educate and inspire people to make better environmental decisions. As a not for profit enterprise any profits we make will go back in to achieving these goals.
