Specialist charity shops

As one of the most innovative charity retailers on the high street, we have a range of specialist charity shops and products to suit you.

Vintage and retro

Whether you love digging through vinyl, are a 1940s enthusiast or you love the 90s, our charity shops are a must for all things collectable.

Our specialist teams hand pick the items we sell in our vintage shops and departments.

We are always looking for volunteers, so whether you fancy sorting through our vintage stock, creating window displays or helping at one of the many festivals and events we attend each year, you can find out more by visiting our volunteering page.

Search for your nearest vintage shop or check out our ebay shop where you can find even more pre-loved vintage items.

Superstores

Visit one of our large, spacious superstores where you’ll find a huge range of donated goods and new items on offer.

Along with the usual range of ladies, mens and childrens clothing, you can also shop for furniture, electrical goods and household items.

Conveniently located on the high street and in out-of-town shopping centres, you’ll also find that our superstores are ideal to easily drop off your donations.

So have a clear out of your cupboards before you visit and you’ll have room for all the bargains you’ll find!

To find your nearest superstore search our shops and filter by 'superstore'.

£3 or less

Our special brand of budget shops offer a wide range of high street names at bargain prices. You’ll find everything you need from clothing and accessories, to household and entertainment, all under one roof.

Selected shops also sell furniture which is all priced at £50 or less.

With low prices and quick purchases, new items are put out daily so it’s worth popping back on a regular basis.

You can find your closest £3 or less shop using our shop search and selecting the '£3 or less' filter.

SAVED - tested, refurbished or upcycled by Sue Ryder

When some might think an item is destined for landfill: that’s when our SAVED label comes to life. By injecting time, creativity and expertise, we make them usable and enjoyable once again.

From replacing the plug on an otherwise-perfect lamp, to refurbishing a washing machine with a full check, repair and clean, or upcycling a well-worn chair into a modern masterpiece – all of it has been SAVED by Sue Ryder.

Lovingly – and ethically – refurbished by our charity shop staff

Our specially trained shop staff, volunteers and selected partners use their passion and skill to turn our sort rooms into bustling hives of transformation.

That’s where the PAT-testing for safe domestic appliances takes place, or curtains are cut up to make handbags.

We also work with prisoners who service second-hand bikes in bicycle workshops, making them ready for the road again. Set up as part of the Government’s drive to reduce reoffending by encouraging organisations to link with HMP industries through the New Futures Network, we work in partnership with the Ministry of Justice to help create employment and training opportunities for prisoners within a purposeful, encouraging environment.

The bikes are brought to the HMP workshops in various states of repair, then qualified Band 4 instructors train and mentor the volunteers to assess the work needed to make the bikes fit for purpose and to carry out repairs.

The refurbished bikes are then sold at our Sue Ryder charity shops as part of our SAVED scheme. Any of the bikes which can't be fully repaired are broken down and used for spares, so nothing goes to waste.

So whether it’s a fashionista wanting one-off designs, or a family on a budget, SAVED can offer style and value in an ethical way.

Why SAVED?

Bringing SAVED to our customers represents everything we care about in one big, virtuous circle.

It gives skills and confidence to our staff and volunteers. It helps reduce the millions of tonnes of waste that go into landfill every year. It makes environmentally friendly choices available on the high street at affordable prices.

And, while the items are improving the lives of those who use them, all the money raised goes towards our palliative, neurological and bereavement support.
