THRIFTY fashionistas are going wild over the UKs biggest Oxfam superstore claiming you can spend a whole day roaming around.

Oxfam has long been a favourite for those looking for second-hand bargains. But if you feel like your local one is no longer enough, best plan a trip to Oxford.


Here you can find the biggest Oxfam in the country, which sells high-end designer garments for a fraction of the price.

The superstore, which opened back in 2019, also retails the charity's donated items and the Sourced by Oxfam range of brand new, ethically-sourced clothes and homeware.

One of those who decided to check out the massive store and see what the fuss is all about is the thrifting queen Jen, better known as Charity Shop Girl (@charityshopgirlcsg) on TikTok.

Taking her 73k fans along the journey, the second-hand lover grabbed her phone and headed inside the store, where she discovered a cute cafe near the entrance.

Whether you need a little pick me-up or fancy a little nibble before heading further, the cafe seems to have it all.

Whilst filming, Jen came across jam doughnuts, gluten-free ginger cake, jam-filler croissants, a mouth-watering red velvet cheesecake and other treats.

''Make a day of it,'' the happy shopper urged fellow fashionistas to head to Oxford.

According to the mum, who regularly visits various charity shops across the nation, the Oxfam superstore is so massive, you need a full day – and a big basket.

Even though the store is open only four days a week – Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays – donations will be accepted across all seven days.

There's also free parking for those dropping off any pre-loved items or shopping for a bargain.

Measuring 18,500 sq ft, the store is 12 times the size of the average Oxfam charity shop, one of its biggest worldwide..

Danny Sriskandarajah, of Oxfam GB, told The Sun that the new venture is more than just a shop, it's a social hub for the entire community to show people the true difference shopping, donating and volunteering at Oxfam can make.

The store is located across the road from Oxfam's headquarters in Oxford and its launch comes at a good time – with more and more people preferring to buy second hand goods over brand new.
