Charity shops

We’ve opened charity shops to raise vital funds and awareness. Your unwanted items could be turned into support for people and planet, and we will ensure that we make the very best we can of them. 

Our three shops opened last year on 1 March 2020. The shops previously raised money for former national charity, Breast Cancer Care. You’ll find us here:

What do our shops sell?

You’ll find used clothes that have been donated by members of the public as well as brand new and exclusive ranges which are surplus stock for retailers, and a small selection of new goods to ensure a strong retail experience that helps us to attract a strong customer base.

What can I donate?

We’d love men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and accessories in good condition. And we’d also love jewellery, unwanted gifts in original packaging and any bric-a-brac you think others may want to buy. 

There are some used items we won’t be able to sell: underwear, electrical items, bedding and soft furnishings, and books and CDs, unless they’re rare items. 


We’re looking for shop volunteers who can help us give amazing customer service and ensure the stores run brilliantly. There are volunteering opportunities in all stores, so if you think you might be able to help out, please do get in touch with any of the shops directly.

Who are Rieves Retail and what profits does the Foundation get?

All profits from the sale of items in our shops help Rieves Foundations work to support people and planet. This means that any donations of clothes and accessories from you will make a real difference. Rieves Retail was set up by our founders and they operate the shops for us at cost. As the Foundation has no staff, this is a highly cost-effective arrangement for the charity.
