This coincides with the launch of the competition, where customers get the chance to win a full outfit by trying it on in store and posting a photo on Instagram, tagging #outfitlondonroad and @outfitlondonroad.

The winner will receive one coat, one jumper or blouse, one pair of jeans or trousers, one pair of shoes, and one accessory.

The winner will be chosen by companions at Emmaus Brighton and Hove, who are people living and working at the charity after experiencing homelessness.

Joel Lewis, business manager at Emmaus Brighton and Hove, said: “We are incredibly excited to be officially opening our new Outfit London Road store to support our work here at Emmaus and give people the chance to shop sustainably.

“Anyone who loves our Outfit store in Portslade village will love our new store and we’re looking forward to welcoming new customers to our city-centre location. As a charity we offer a home, meaningful work and a sense of belonging to support people out of homelessness and everyone attending our student day event will be helping us to achieve that.”

Emmaus Brighton and Hove is also appealing for new volunteers who would be interested in helping in the store. Roles include sorting donations, serving customers and researching vintage items. If you are interested email volunteer@emmausbrighton.co.uk
