Mary's Living & Giving shops

Charity shops with a difference

Coronavirus (COVID-19) information

Our shops have been temporarily closed to support the nationwide effort to control the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and protect our staff, volunteers, and supporters. In line with government advice, we are starting a phased reopening of our 125 high street shops. Scroll down to read more.

An up-to-date list of the shops that are now open can be found here.

Protective measures that Save the Children have put in place include placing donations and returns in isolation for 48 hours, installing till guards at till points and supplying hand sanitiser for staff, volunteers and supporters. Signage has been created to help manage social distancing and contactless payment will be preferred where possible too (click here for our full health and safety statement ).

The approach to accepting donations will be different for each shop, depending on storage facilities so please call ahead when you’re ready to donate to check the best time for your local store.

Your preloved items will be hugely appreciated once we're back up and running, so please do hold onto anything you wish to donate until then or order a donation bag from us here .

In the meantime our online shop is still open

Our boutique shops are a fantastic place to visit and volunteer. Mary's Living and Giving shops were set up with retail expert Mary Portas, and every item donated helps children reach their full potential.
