COVID-19 information

We are pleased to be able to return to business as usual under Alert Level 1. With this decrease in Alert Levels comes a sense of normalcy in business and socialising. We are no longer required to enforce physical distancing, or other preventive measures, however a high standard of hygiene for all volunteers, customers and staff is encouraged. 
Please click here to see specific ReStore page for more information.   

If you’d like to donate your quality goods, please ensure that they are clean and complete, and pre-sorted in to groupings. This helps our staff and volunteers to process things carefully and safely.  Click here for how to pre-sort your goods at home before donating.
