CeX celebrates 10 years in Wrexham – and is moving around the corner for people living in or visiting the Wrexham area

‘Revolutionary recycling retailer’ CeX is about to celebrate 10 years of serving the people of Wrexham, and has decided to salute the achievement by moving to a more ‘prominent location’ on 10 Hope Street.

CeX entrepreneurially told us: “The new location will make it more convenient for the people of Wrexham to buy, sell and exchange their phones, games, movies, tablets, computers, PCs, cameras and digital electronics at CeX.”

They also added some green credentials ahead of the move, “Many people will be unaware that their unwanted old gadgets and mobiles are worth cash and shouldn’t be binned as they could end up in a landfill site. This, in turn, can lead to toxic chemicals from the battery leaking into watercourses. One mobile battery is capable of polluting 600,000 litres of water, and with the average person replacing his/her mobile phone every 12 months the problem is only growing worse.

“Instead, CeX are encouraging the public to think about their actions and help protect the environment by recycling unwanted goods but they can also get cash or store credit to spend on something they really want.”

The relocated CeX store will open its doors to the public tomorrow, with the old CeX store off Queens Square closing.

The new store is located in the old Greenwoods outlet that closed in 2014, and has had a large amount of work done inside and out to remodel the old bay entrance. The site was shortly used for a briefly famous £5 shop.

More work will be required before opening tomorrow, with one eagle eyed reader pointing out the brand new signage had already become detached as of yesterday evening:
