Nick Drewe, the entrepreneur who founded of WeThrift in 2017, said: “In the UK we know that people have an affinity for reselling products, whether its old sofas, second hand trainers, or Aldi’s Kevin the Carrot plush toy, if there’s a buck to be made the entrepreneurial British people will be selling it.

"However, sometimes a product is particularly popular in one area, therefore hundreds of consumers may miss out. We want to ensure that everyone has the chance to buy a converted middle aisle product!

"Our hope is to get all of the candidates confirmed by the middle of February, so if you love browsing the middle aisle of a discount supermarket, please get in touch!”
