A NEW city centre shop is starting to take shape ahead of it opening in a formerly unused unit.

Bosses at the new CeX store, which buys and sells second hand goods for cash or store credit, expect to pay out around £800,000 in its first year.

The shop is also set to play its part in helping the environment, with CeX encouraging customers to trade in their items instead of throwing them away.

Katrine Wain, operations manager, said: “We urge Bradford to go green and save by recycling their old gadgets, games, phones and DVDs into cash at CeX. We expect to pay out around £800,000 in our first year. We believe the best way to recycle something is to use it again.

“We also encourage community groups to start collections as it is a great way to raise money for charity and help protect the environment.”
