The Used Blues Shop (TUBS)


The Used Blue Shop (TUBS), operated by parent volunteers, sells used uniforms (shorts, gym t-shirts, grey pants, blazers, dress shirts, khaki pants, etc.), and a limited supply of used textbooks, and English/French novels and plays.

 

Lost and Found
TUBS is also the home of Lost and Found. TUBS volunteers will make every effort to notify students when labeled books, backpacks or clothing are found. At the end of the school year, any unclaimed items will be sold at the Fall Uniform Sale or donated to Horizons and/or New Circles. All proceeds from TUBS benefit students through funding for the UCC Wish List.

Location
TUBS is in the Upper School basement across from UCC Press.

Donations/Consignment
Donations of used uniforms and books are always gratefully appreciated and can be donated throughout the school year.
 
TUBS will sell blazers on consignment. The consignor will be reimbursed 50% of the sale price. Once a consigned blazer is sold, student accounts will be credited with the sale amount and Old Boys will be mailed a cheque.


Used (and New) Uniform & Clothing Sale
Fall Sale (location: David Chu Theatre)

Usually Sunday through Tuesday before the start of school in September.  Watch Heads Up for details.

Used Book and Clothing Collections
The PO holds collections in the spring at which time books can be consigned to Canadian School Book Exchange (CSBE) for resale over the summer. Parents later receive a credit or cheque from CSBE for a portion of the value remaining in the books that are sold through CSBE (depending on the condition of the books) and the PO receives a commission from CSBE. Books that are not sold are donated or recycled for charity by CSBE.

Spring Collections
Watch Heads Up for details.
