There are two rebeebies shops in Park Centre and Connswater. These shops are located opposite our restore units and sell second hand nursery items such as prams, walkers and toys aswell as bikes from the recycle project. All nursery items are prepared and cleaned in our workshop before going to the shops to be sold. Cuddly toys are even machine washed and dried. If there is something specific you want that we don’t have on the shop floor, ask the staff as it is likely we can get it for you from the main warehouse. If you wish to donate nursery items or bikes, call the restore shop in Park Centre on 028 9031 5721 or the Connswater shop on 028 9045 5025.
Volunteers are always needed in our shops. You can help with a range of tasks on the shop floor or behind the scenes, sorting stock, logging information, serving the public, answering the phone, pricing stock or operating the till. Contact your nearest shop for more information or use the contact box. We will be happy to hear from you.
Several Methodist Churches have very kindly placed a clothing bank at their premises to collect essential donations for our clothes shops. The donations are collected by our vans on a weekly basis, sorted and then sold in our shops. PR & Business Development Manager at EBM, Cathy Megahey said “without the support of the churches we would definitely struggle to get the required amount of donations to stock our clothes shops. The public tend to hold onto items longer, probably due to the economic climate so we really do appreciate the vital support they continue to offer”.
Working in partnership with local councils
Restore has close partnerships with councils in Belfast, Larne, North Down and Antrim. Working with the councils to reduce goods sent to landfill, restore has a van dedicated to collecting bulky waste from recycling centres at various locations. If the items are in good enough quality for immediate resale they are taken directly to the restore shops to be sold. Alternatively, they are taken to refurb for a “make–over” and are then sold through restore. This partnership means that as a social economy project restore can work towards achieving their environmental goals.
Restore works with Ikea on a project known as the “Take Back Scheme.” The idea of this scheme is working on a “like with like” basis so if an Ikea customer purchases a wardrobe and has it delivered to their home, the Ikea van can take away their old wardrobe which is then donated to restore. This scheme has been on-going for several years now and is working very well for East Belfast Mission.
