Second Hand Uniform

The second-hand uniform and goods store (SHUGS) is run by parent volunteers. An opportunity is provided for parents to buy and sell second-hand uniform, sports shoes and equipment. Opening is at set times at the beginning of each term and half term and an annual sale is also held which is timed to benefit parents attending New Boys’ Reception Afternoon but is also open to current parents. All funds raised support the School.

We always need more stock.

Location of SHUGS Store

All new volunteers are always welcome, whether to help out regularly or just at the annual sale. To volunteer or for further information please contact RGS Parents Association.

Opening days follow a set pattern: Following the first day of every term and half-term, the store will open on the first Wednesday and Thursday, as well as the following Saturday and then Tuesday of the next week. Opening times are set for each day and cover a range to allow most the chance to attend.

Dates for 2020/21 will be announced as soon as possible. Please see Classlist for the most recent announcements.

How do I price items?

It is the seller’s responsibility to price the items for sale; we cannot do this for you. As a rough rule of thumb 40 – 50% of the original price is appropriate for an item which is in excellent condition, 25 – 30% for good condition and 10 – 15% for usable items.  Items that are keenly priced will always sell. Items that are in short supply will demand higher prices as will items that bear the school logo. We have a large supply of generic items (such as dark grey trousers and navy jumpers) so you should bear this in mind when you price these items. We have less demand for larger sizes so larger blazers, trousers and jumpers will also need to be priced more keenly to attract a sale.  Please only price in full pounds.

Where can I drop off items?

We welcome items for sale and boys will be able to drop off clothes on the dates just before each sale.  Details will be given via the Classlist app.

What are the Terms and Conditions?

Commission on all sales is 25%. All our proceeds go to the RGSPA to be used for the benefit of the boys and the wider school community. We aim to reimburse sellers after each sale. When the payment is under £10, we make payment by cash and sellers will receive an email or message through Classlist to pick up the cash from school reception. It will be available for collection at reception for one week. If not collected within this time, it will be treated as a donation to SHUGS. You may ask your son to collect the cash on your behalf. Any payment over £10 will be made electronically and we will invite sellers to provide bank details for payment credit. Sellers will receive an email when a payment is to be made. Sellers are required to fill in all the information on the seller labels clearly and neatly. SHUGS can only contact sellers through the information provided on the label. If attempts to contact are unsuccessful, the monies will be treated as a donation to SHUGS. Any personal data relating to sellers gathered by SHUGS on the label will only be used to contact sellers for reimbursement purposes.

What happens to items which do not sell?

We will try to sell your items for 12 months.  The label proforma asks you to state the month and year that you submit the items so that we can ensure that they are offered for sale for a full year.  Any items that remain unsold in our stock at the end of the year will automatically become SHUGS stock and if subsequently sold, the funds will be donated to the RGSPA.
