Being a village shop is just the start of what our shop brings to village life: it is now a well-established social hub. Customers talk to us to find out the progress of the allotments, the latest on the speed watch campaign and details about missing cats. We have many stories of how our shop is helping to reduce social isolation because it is easy to get to, and when you arrive you find a friendly face and a willing ear. From those who are new to the village to those with specific needs our shop is helping many to enjoy life that little bit more.
Before our shop opened the nearest place to buy bread, milk and newspapers was a few miles away. Our customers are not only happy to save fuel but also happy to do their bit for the environment too.
So, when we ask you to consider becoming a share member or increase your share membership, please think about these hidden benefits. We never intended for the shop to make big profits, but we do have to break even. From the beginning we have stated that any profits we do make would be returned to the community.
