Our Stock Range

In normal times, we stock approximately 700 retail lines of everything you would expect to find in a village convenience store (plus more individual local products and gifts) including: toiletries, household goods, laundry products, chilled foods (Cheeses, large and small yoghurts pate, ham cream, milk, individual pies etc), ambient grocery main brands (Condiments, flour, sugar, pasta rice, basic cooking and baking supplies), biscuits, sharing crisps, cereals (local and main brand), chocolates and sweets, tea, coffee, large bottles of coke/lemonade, cartons and bottles of fruit juice and squash, cards, gifts, fruit and vegetables, frozen convenience (such as chips, frozen peas etc) large round and loaf cakes, and bread, cat and dog food. 

We have a mix of suppliers including the local Booker Cash and Carry, but we also have many very local and small independent suppliers whose supply chain and their own suppliers are currently, mainly unaffected by the Coronavirus crisis. They include such products as bread and bakery items (6 days a week), fresh meat (almost daily/when required), bacon, eggs, honey, and handmade ready meals and family pies.

We still sell all of the above (subject to availability), just with some small changes. Currently there are some items that we are out of stock such as paracetamol and bleach, but most main staple products are available.  We normally sell only main branded goods such as McVities, Heinz, Hellman’s, Colgate etc, but at the moment some items are having to be substituted with what is available – for example we have the ‘Happy Shopper’ range of Rich Tea and Gingernut biscuits at the moment.


What we have added/changed

As some normal lines are unavailable from the wholesalers, we have had to ‘think outside of the box’!  We currently have rice, spaghetti, plain and self-raising flour and potatoes in bulk that we can now bag up in 500g an 1kg quantities.  We also have fresh yeast from our bakery, that we are selling in 2oz portions (enough for 4 loaves). This lasts a week and can be frozen. We are also selling our catering soups (Tomato, Wild Mushroom and Cream of Chicken), we have large bottles of hand-soap that we can dispense into tubs and we can bag up dishwasher tabs when larger boxes are only available.
