A new community-based charity store has opened on Jiangning Road.

The store, at 916 Jiangning Road, is the second street store opened by online charity shop Buy42 in Shanghai. Described as the flagship store, it covers nearly 400 square meters. Almost 90 percent of the goods, from clothes to accessories and toys to home appliances, are brand new, donated by companies such as Internet giant Alibaba, high-street brand Zara and the Groupon website Pinduoduo.

The first shop opened in June at 1132 Xinzha Road and has started to make a profit. There will be a third store opening soon in the Daning area.
