i'm sure they wouldn't stop you paying full price

Wouldn't buy at any price - the cause seems good at first glance, but why do all the management get a salary rather than work for free if they're such good and caring people ?
As for a bargain, my local pound shop had Christmas cards reduced to 5p each this week...... that's a bargain.

I have friends and family who have shops in small local high streets, and they now have a choice of closing down or claiming tax credits to try and stay in business - charity shops like cancer research get free stock, free staff (other than management), reduced business rates, often get free advertising in local media etc etc ............... how is that fair or even morally defensible, to help put your competitors out of business ?
Charity shops these days are part of a business empire so should compete on a level playing field.
Many of the smaller family businesses which have to close down in part due to charity shops, are run by people nearing retirement age who will not get paid work elsewhere.
How much of every pound you spend in a charity shop actually goes to the charity rather than paying overheads - ask in your local shop and see if they know the answer ?
Charity shops in my opinion should be forced to pay their way like every other business in a high street, and the sooner they go back to jumble sales at the weekend the better - I have nothing against lots of charities doing good work, but when they are unfairly competing against small family businesses and helping to close many of them down, I cannot see that they should be supported.

I'm fairly sure you can pay the price on the label and then put any additional donation in the box on the counter. Yes I'd rather pay full price too but at least the OP is pointing out that you can get these charity cards. So HEAT added!

What local shop?

Still not voting hot though, as don't think this deal should go high as many people will just pay the 79p.I have to thank you for taking the time to let me know you can make donations in a charity shop, thought the OP was making this part up.;)
