Current Rag Prices Being Offered

With reopening plans now thoroughly underway, our latest insight that rag prices are returning to a place of normality was some warmly received news.


Rag Pricing


Covid-19 has forced a turbulent few months on all of us and charity retail (not to mention rag prices) have been no different.

Due to difficulties in many overseas markets, coupled with large stockpiles of unsold rag, we have seen a volatile market created in terms of rag pricing.

As the UK’s largest charity retail training and support services provider, our consultants have been working very closely with charity retail shops coming out of lockdown and have seen rag prices returning to a sense of normality – with some rag merchants offering 35p for textiles and 45p for shoes.

Charity Retail Training & Support Services are a UK registered training provider, made up of a varied team of skilled specialists. Our team provide charities with the support they need to achieve their goals. Our breadth of experience and dedication empowers countless charities to optimise the return from their retail outlets.

If you would like to find out more about our Brand Directory or any of the other ways that we have helped so many charities with their retail business, please get in touch at or on 0208 050 7514.
