Frequently Asked Questions

Do you collect items?
Unfortunately, as we are quite a small retail operation, we don’t have the facilities to collect items. If you can’t bring items with you to the shop, why not ask family, friends or neighbours if they can drop them off for you?

Is there anything you don’t accept?
We can’t accept electrical items due to trading standards reasons and we can’t accept furniture as we don’t yet have space.

Not sure if we can accept your item(s)? – Please call your local shop and ask, we’re happy to help.

Can I make financial donations in store?
Yes financial donations in any format (card, cheque and cash) can be accepted in any Rainbows retail store.
