Shops in Level 4 areas of Scotland will be closed from Friday 20 November.

Following the announcement by the Scottish Government, our shops and superstores entering Level 4 restrictions in Scotland will be closing on Thursday 19 November and will remain closed until Saturday 12 December.

Whilst these shops are closed, please do not leave donations outside. They could become damaged and a hazard to the community. Instead, please keep hold of them until the shops re-open.

Shops in England will be closed from Thursday 5 November.

Following the announcement by the UK Government of a national lockdown, all our shops and superstores in England will be closing by 4.30pm, Thursday 5 November, and will remain closed until Thursday 3 December.

Whilst these shops are closed, please do not leave donations outside. They could become damaged and a hazard to the community. Instead, please keep hold of them until the shops re-open.

Elsewhere in the UK, the majority of our shops are open. There are some local exceptions, so please call ahead before visiting.

You may donate your items during opening hours, but please call ahead before visiting. This will allow you to check opening hours and the shop's ability to accept donations.

We are always grateful for your donations but sometimes shops may ask you to keep hold of your items until a later date. This is due to donations being isolated for 48 hours before being handled and the impact this has on storage space. Please do not leave donations outside of closed shops.

Some shops have reduced opening hours to facilitate additional cleaning measures and to accommodate amended commutes for our teams in-line with government advice, so you may wish to phone ahead before making a special journey.

All our shops have hand sanitiser stations in the doorway, cough guards at till points, as well as social distancing measures in place.

Our staff and volunteers have face coverings, gloves, hand sanitisers, handwashing guidance, specially selected cleaning products and a much busier cleaning rota.

Our online stores and marketplaces are also open for you to continue shopping with us day or night to help fund life-saving cancer research:

Thank you for your continued support, and take care.
