Wait ... what? They say we need to cut our carbon footprint, and they think encouraging us to shop online with free delivery and have couriers drive round delivering all the parcels will help "save the planet"? I don't think they've thought that through.

Heat for the deal, but that's some ice cold PR greenwashing.

They are no longer as cheap as they were years ago when clueless staff would price things as they saw fit. These days they have people to evaluate designer items/antiques/records, and lists of brands with guides on pricing, and then the staff can easily go on ebay to see what things are going for. The shops are very much encouraged to operate in a businesslike fashion to maximise takings.

I volunteered in one a few years ago where the manager wouldn't even drop prices for staff when a piece of clothing fit perfectly and was needed by a volunteer claiming benefits.

And no doubt the managers all ran about in company cars

No idea about that. I don't think the manager was doing that well financially, and under a lot of pressure from the charity to keep the shop afloat before it went under, probably because the rent was set high by my local shopping centre (where a third of the units are now empty).

Sad times.
Most charities are mega businesses that prey on the weak of mind... If you feel the need support an independent food bank, or the life boats.
Thanks for sharing @ThunderHumph - hopefully helps lots of people

How do you expect them to deliver clothes, carrier pigeons?
Wait Oxfam is still a thing? Why I people still giving money to this so called Charity, do people have the memory of a goldfish?

Volunteer in a charity shop. Can confirm its exactly the same in our shop. Everything is checked on eBay or monsoon before it goes out on the shop floor
Too overpriced for second handed clothes. Plus once a huge charity organisation messes up like Oxfam, you really should avoid them.
As stated above charity shops used to be great for bargains, nowadays they want stupid prices, £4 for a t shirt that is used and costs the same or up to £8 max at a supermarket?

A shirt I can buy in primark for HALF the price the charity shop wants.

And often of course they have the signs of usage i.e faded colours, and all for the convience of going out of your way and paying up to double sometimes more to a charity.

If I want to donate I will do it direct!
Oxfam....helping seedy old men go abroad under the guise of a volunteer to abuse the needy, then cover it all up. Lovely charity ❤
