Newlife bosses are in talks with the KGL Estates, owner of the former Maymies nightclub, on Hemlock Way, Hawks Green, Cannock, and hope to have secured a long term lease for the premises as early as next week. The company, which donates all of its profits to the Newlife Foundation, already has its main premises Saucony Microdot
"We are one of the few organisations that have experienced this kind of growth in the region recently and we are proud that this success is leading to new jobs."
Jobs at the new site will be offered as soon as Chase District Council awards permission for a change of use at the building, and the scheme looks likely to get the go ahead after local councillors gave the plans their backing.
Newlife recycles and sells unwanted clothes from more than 400 retailers. The Newlife Foundation is a national children's charity that funds equipment and support for disabled children.
Charity retailer Newlife has emerged as the likely replacement for an abandoned Staffordshire nightspot as part of a major expansion that will create 24 jobs for local people.

Newlife chief executive Sheila Brown OBE said the retailer needs to expand its premises after securing a number of new contracts and projecting an increase of a million units of stock by the end of the financial year.
The move will see the former nightclub, which closed down in January 2004 after a 30 year presence in the town, used as a storage warehouse for the store's excess stock.
