Ordering from Girlguiding Trading Services
Buying from Girlguiding Trading Service couldn't be easier and all our profits go back to supporting guiding in the UK!
Visit one of our 800+ volunteer shops and agents (depots) around the UK.
Sometimes it’s easier to be able to go into a shop and try on the clothes or browse the resources and gifts available in person.
We have a wide network of shops around the UK that stock Girlguiding merchandise. These range from shops that are open during normal high street shopping hours to a vast network of volunteer-led shops (depots) in your local area that are open one or two evenings a week or on weekends.
Our volunteers are also an invaluable source of guiding knowledge and can advise you about all your guiding needs.
To find directions to your nearest shop call Trading Service on 0161 941 2237 .
Are volunteer shops/agents (depots) the same as my local school wear shop?
Volunteer shops/agents (depots) are just that, they are run by Girlguiding volunteers and all the profits made from sales are used to support local guiding – they are not to be confused with high street school wear retailers (who may sell our section wear) that are commercial businesses. Girlguiding operates one high street shop in London and three in Scotland in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen. The net profits from these shops also support guiding. Check out the shop locator for details.
