these guys used forced free labour yet the bosses are milking it.
It would be even nicer if people paid the full price instead of half! - or even made a donation
Going from the prices in our local one, 50% off will take them to roughly what the same items brand new will cost!
Last time I looked in they had a small bedroom side table from ikea in the window, £35 in Ikea, £40 second hand in BHF!
Sadly, those who benefit most from these 'charity' shops are those who are employed by them, like store manager, area managers etc, all of whom get nice salaries whilst trying to make the rest of us feel guilty if we don't donate unwanted items to keep them in a job.

Nowadays these places are run as a business, so should pay business rates for their premises, as well as pay all the volunteers a wage, unless the law is changed so that even small family run businesses can legally use volunteer labour, and make it a level playing field.

Wouldn't it be better if people just gave money directly to their chosen charity, rather than have some of their donations used to pay rent, utility bills plus salaries for all the managers in the chain ?
The one nearest to us has closed, wasn't hard to see why as the prices were a lot higher than the other shops close by.
I'm sure the charities get very little of this money it's sick just another way for the rich to get richer.

Including using people doing unpaid hours handed down by the courts. They should be doing those hours helping their community not helping these 'charities' reduce overheads so they can pay bigger bonuses.
Rather die than have help from these .

Blimey, why is everyone on this site so bloody angry and …Blimey, why is everyone on this site so bloody angry and supercilious?Personally I have bought many things from BHF shops and at fair prices, you don't like them fair enough but it's not necessary to shove you opinions down others throats.


Is that not exactly what you are doing now? It's a discussion forum, people can discuss!

No, I don't think it is.I don't think there is much discussion going on, …No, I don't think it is.I don't think there is much discussion going on, rather just a bunch of random statements which people purport to be facts.


My comment was fact. I can't prove it as I didn't think I would need photo proof of a price of something I didn't buy, but probably as provable as your fact.

Just about the write the same, they are very over priced compare to most other charity shops.. i love charity shops.. but even 50% off would still probably not be as good as the other shops.. defo milking it
