No. Our first store opened in South Yarra, Victoria in 1981. This shop sold ‘seconds’ and discontinued lines, hence The Reject Shop name. Today however, we no longer sell seconds and only some of our products are discontinued lines. We have adopted our current formula for low prices and bargains on the everyday things people use most in their life.
These are genuine branded products, but they may differ in design, materials and formulation from similar products currently offered locally. They do not have the support of the official Australian distributor but The Reject Shop supports these products with its normal trading warranty.
The Reject Shop has a "hassle-free" refund and exchange policy. The Reject Shop will provide a refund on presentation of the product and proof of purchase. If the customer cannot provide proof of purchase, then a refund or exchange for another product may be offered at store management discretion.
The accepted methods of payment at The Reject Shop is cash, visa, mastercard and EFTPOS card. Please note that we do not accept cheque payments.
You can get cash out at any register when paying for your purchase with EFTPOS.
The Reject Shop employs over 1,200 full time staff and over 4,700 casual and part time staff. During the busy Christmas trading season, several hundred more casual staff are employed.
For Shop Assistant roles, the best way to apply is to visit a store and ask the Store Manager. Stores are responsible for hiring their own team members. If you are looking for a management role please email a copy of your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
