Visiting your local reuse charity shop

Posted on the 10th June 2020

Reuse charity stores in England will be gradually re-opening from Monday 15 June 2020 (dates for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to be announced). 

Everyone’s health and wellbeing from staff, volunteers, customers to the wider community is at the top of the priority list to ensure a safe and efficient service is provided. 

Risk assessments will have been carried out for re-opening and measures put in place to minimise the risk of virus transmission. 

If you are showing any coronavirus symptoms or feel unwell in any way, please do not visit your local reuse charity store.

Social distancing measures will be put in place, please ensure that you familiarise yourself with those specific to each shop. These could be markers on the floor, walls or ceilings. 

You may need to queue as stores will be monitoring and limiting the number of people in the store at any one time. Sanitisation stations will be made available where possible. 

Some charity stores may only accept card or contactless payment. If you are unable to pay this way, please ask a member of staff whether they can offer an alternative. If you

find yourself having to self-isolate and require the services of your local reuse charity store, please contact them directly to find out if they are able to help. Some will be putting in measures in place for contactless delivery services. 

Look out for the Staying COVID Secure posters.
