revolve_colour_2A Glasgow store is encouraging locals to buy pre-loved bikes with confidence and ease by being recognised as one of the very best places in Scotland to shop second-hand.

De’ils On Wheels, which actively promotes the re-use of quality bicycles and encourages locals to love their bikes, has become the latest organisation to receive the Revolve stamp of approval; an official quality mark by Zero Waste Scotland that highlights excellence, both in service and product.

The store, on Kingsway Court, Scotstounhill, is a project of Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRECT) and has undergone rigorous assessment over the last few months to earn their Revolve status.

Joining 36 other Revolve businesses across Scotland that also promise high quality re-used goods, De’ils On Wheels is hoping that the mark, which will be visible throughout the store, will persuade potential new customers that second hand doesn’t mean second best.

Since we started working towards gaining the title we have made great improvements in what we do and this has resulted in better quality used products and a much better customer experience. We believe there is a strong market in providing people with a sustainable alternative, and look forward to building customer confidence in the sector and passing on good practice to other organisations in the re-use sector.”

Their Revolve status has been hard-earned and gives a clear sign to the people of Glasgow that they can completely trust what’s in-store.

“As a quality mark, Revolve is set to grow significantly throughout Scotland and we’re delighted to welcome this business as one of the first to be accredited in the area.”
