Selfridges have laid out their ambitions to make up half of all transactions from resale, repair, rental and refills by 2030, in response to increasing consumer demand for more sustainable shopping.

The retailer said it wanted to step up action after increasing sales of secondhand items by 240% to 17,771 pieces last year and facilitating 28,000 repairs, more than a third of which were pairs of trainers, in its effort to trade in a more environmentally sustainable way. It also rented out more than 2,000 items to customers and sold more than 8,000 refills.

Andrew Keith, the managing director of the department store group, which has four outlets across the UK – in London, Birmingham and two in Manchester – said its “Reselfridges” initiative aimed to change the way that people shop and would form the “backbone of the business”, making up 45% of transactions in future. He set a deadline of 2030 to reach that target.

“The important thing is encouraging people to think how they can extend the life of a product,” Keith said. “We are enabling customers to add life into their wardrobes above and beyond buying new.”
