Come on charity shops, it is about time some of you realised that soon people will not support you. Some charity shops already have a bad reputation for the amount they charge for good second-hand items. Some of the items you can buy in these shops are dearer than buying brand new from high street stores. We know you have staff wages and electricity etc to pay out of the sales, but do you really have to out-price yourselves? Surely, if you reduced the price you would sell more and therefore more customers would support you. These over-priced charity shops say they sell only good quality items, but so do other charity shops - such as Clic, Hospiscare and Devon Air Ambulance - and yet they keep their prices down. Well done to them.Ruth Davies,(via email)
