EIGHT new jobs will be created when CeX opens its doors in the town centre on Monday, December 10.

The electronics recycling retailer will open in Leicester Street, in place of Grainger Games, and is the fourth CeX franchise for Mohammed Patel.

The store will buy, sell and exchange phones, games, movies, tablets, computers, PCs, cameras and digital electronics, and expects to pay out £350,000 to shoppers within 12 months.

Mr Patel said: “We urge Northwich to go green and save by recycling their old gadgets, games, phones and DVDs into cash at CeX.

We expect to pay out over £350,000 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.

Unwanted old gadgets and mobiles often end up in landfill, which can in turn lead to toxic chemicals from the battery leaking into watercourses.

CeX says one mobile battery is capable of polluting 600,000 litres of water, and the average person replaces their phone every 12 months.

You can recycle goods in-store for cash, or for store credit to pick up a second-hand gadget.

Mr Patel said: “Most people’s worry about buying second hand is that there is usually no guarantee.

"At CeX, we thoroughly test every item we sell so we are able to give a 24-month warranty on everything.

"Customers have the added benefit that buying in store means they can visually check over the item and even test it before they buy.”
