Beckenham store to relaunch after January boom

Booming business has forced a Beckenham used goods store to relaunch following an appearance in The Times.
Buzzbee Kids, in Upper Elmers End Road, will have a clearance sale today (Thursday) before re-opening on February 14 after readers flocked to the store with their unwanted items.
All sale items will be sold for £1 as owner Anita Burke opens the store for a hectic 12-hour-shift. Any items left behind will be donated to Demelza children’s charity.
Previously the shop, which sells stock on behalf of customers, kept items indefinitely - though products will now be on shelves for seven weeks and offered online before they’re offered back to the owners or donated to Demelza.
Anita said: “We got overloaded with stock because of the article in The Times, people certainly did clear out their attics.
“I’m delighted we’re relaunching. It is a little scary because we are giving stuff away and will have an empty shop - but to me it’s a blank canvas.
“Hopefully we’ll be filling boxes and shipping them off to online customers in Scotland before long.”
