Loctite Second Chance Shops

Proving that you don’t have to be an expert to do your bit for the environment and convert your trash to treasure, the Loctite repair movement will kick off with the free-to-attend ‘Loctite Second Chance Shops’ - homewares stores with a difference in London, Birmingham and Manchester.

Just like the heart-warming TV show The Repair Shop, Brits can visit between 14th to 20th May, bringing in and repairing broken household items with expert repair advice and Loctite’s trusty products - including their best-seller – Loctite Precision. People are invited to either;

  1. Bring a treasured item in for repair (such as shoes, accessories, toys and ceramics)
  2. Customise and upgrade an item (phone case or accessories)
  3. Give a second chance to a Loctite trinket tray using Kinsugi techniques, supplied by the brand on the day

Visitors can also purchase home accessories, specifically curated by Jay and the Loctite upcycling experts from the store, with all proceeds going to Loctite’s Charity Partner IMPAKT.

Jay Blades, MBE commented: “Recycling and upcycling is really close to my heart and I’m very excited to be the Loctite Second Chance ambassador. Loctite superglue is the best on the market and they have a glue for every job, from fixing sunglasses to picture frames all contributing to solving our throwaway culture. I can’t wait to host the London pop-up store and help visitors rediscover broken treasures, which will help the planet and our purse strings."
