Restore Charity Shop
Our charity shops in Chichester and Bognor Regis are now open!
For us to achieve this, we have initiated an Infection Control Protocol in accordance with Public Health England, guidance and regulations, and the COVID-19 Infection Prevention and Control guidance issued by the government.
Measures put in place to keep our customers, volunteers, and staff safe are:
- Reduced numbers of people in the shop at any one time
- Hand sanitiser dispensers on entry and within the shop
- Maintain the 2 metre social distancing throughout the shop
- Extra signage displaying hand hygiene and standard infection control precautions
Please do not visit our shops if you are displaying, or have suffered in the last 7 days from any Covid-19 symptoms.
We have adjusted our donation process in line with government and Public Health England guidelines to lower the risk of infection and keep all visitors to our Restore shops safe.
Donations will only be accepted Monday – Thursday between 10am – 12noon at Chichester Restore
Due to the overwhelming amount of donations we have received, and guidelines relating to quarantining stock, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend all donations of bric-a-brac and clothing until the end of July.
The car park will be closed outside of these times, with on road parking available in the designated bays, for up to 2 hours free of charge for customers using the Restore shop. Please click here for more details about donations.
Collections and Deliveries
Adhering to social distancing guidelines, staff will stay at least 2 metres away from the donor during deliveries and collections. We will advise you of the time and agree a safe outdoor location for the pickup or collection.
Please note that there is no charge for collections, and only a small charge for local deliveries.

To ensure the highest level of infection control, the following precautions have been put in place for the handling of all donations prior to being placed on sale within our shops.
- Staff will always wear disposable gloves
- All donations will be quarantined for 72-hours offsite and then disinfected
- Mandatory hand washing for a min of 20 secs
- Avoidance of touching the face
Restore is a social enterprise that works within the local community offering a worthy place to donate your quality pre-loved or new goods, preventing tonnes of items going to landfill every year.
Funds raised provide income for the charity to continue to support homeless and vulnerable people.
We receive donations of furniture and white goods, which are then restored and recycled to be sold in our shops or used to furnish our properties. We provide a practical learning environment for Stonepillow clients and people who are long-term unemployed for them to gain valuable work experience.
Amazing value and variety
Whether you are looking for a modern item, an antique gem or something chic, we receive pre-loved items every day so there is always a wide range to choose from:
- Furniture - dining tables, chairs, sofas, and bookcases
- Soft furnishings, lamps, rugs, mirrors, ornaments, and paintings
- Bedroom furniture, including beds and mattresses
- Electrical items - televisions, videos, hi-fi systems, DVD players and recorders
- White goods - fridges, freezers, washing machines
- Bicycles and sports equipment
All furniture and electrical items comply with current health and safety standards.
We offer a 20% discount on essential sale items above £10 for those on jobseekers’ allowance, housing benefit, employment and support allowance, and pension credit benefits, providing good quality household items at reasonable prices to those on a low income.
Come in, browse, and take home a treasure!
With almost three decades of experience, Stonepillow provides training in a range of skills such as customer service and practical skills within our workshop. We offer work-skill based training and work experience placements to empower homeless clients, people from vulnerable backgrounds or experiencing trouble finding work.
There are a variety of volunteer roles available to help our clients and trainees into employment. By providing experience of working within a team and building transferable work-based skills, this increases confidence and self-worth, and improves overall personal well-being.
