Shops provide a valuable source of income for many charities, as well as providing brand awareness and acting as informal “community centres” for those that visit regularly. This hub has been created at a time when charity shops have been substantially affected by the coronavirus pandemic – it will track their fortunes as events progress, as well as look back at our coverage over the preceding years.
Representing more than three-fifths of the whole shops market, including almost all household-name charities, the Charity Shops Survey is the definitive study of trends and issues affecting the charity retail sector. Charities tell us how their profit margins are changing, how much shops spend on staff, how many new stores they are opening, how much rent they pay, and much, much more. Purchase the 2019 Survey now.
