Five things you didn’t know about shopping with us

  1. We’re not just in Edinburgh!

There’s a few ways you can shop with us at Girlguiding Scotland, whether that’s visiting our Guide shops in Glasgow and Edinburgh, going to a local volunteer shop near you or shopping online at shop.girlguidingscotland.org.uk.

There’s an added bonus for our members who get their uniform from visiting our Guide shops, as they’ll receive a special ‘I visited the Guide shop’ badge.

Remember Scouting goods are in stock at our Edinburgh Guide shop.

  1. That money spent in Scotland stays in Scotland

The added bonus to shopping with Girlguiding Scotland is that the money spent goes straight into guiding in Scotland, ensuring more girls get more opportunities – isn’t that a good feeling!

  1. We offer ‘shop in a box’ to make it easier to shop locally

We’re excited to share the new way to shop with us! Making it easier for parents to get uniform with our ‘shop in a box*’.

We’ll put together a box full of guiding goodies for you and give you everything you need to start selling. Our shop in a box is perfect for a parents evening held within your unit or district – with a minimum order of £250 you will have a range of products on offer and can send any unsold items back to us. This will earn 10% return for your unit or district when £100 worth of goods are sold.

 “We had a shop in a box at our first meeting at the start of term – making it easy for parents to get the Brownies kitted out. It was so easy to sell to everyone and we simply returned anything that we didn’t sell – and it boosted our unit funds!”

*This replaces our sale or return service.

  1. We’re always reviewing our offer to you

We’re going to be launching a new online shop later this year – making your experience of shopping with us better! Keep an eye on our social media channels for news of the launch.

We’ve also tweaked our postage rates so that you’re Girlguiding Scotland orders get to your door cheaply. We also reward our big shoppers with free postage for every order over £100.

Under £100 – £2.95

Over £100 – FREE
