⚡You’ll have noticed the lightning… It hit two telegraph poles by the shop and burnt out our phone/router/till system. Most transactions are back up and running (Sunday 16th August) but weighing fruit and veg and then entering the price manually can take a bit longer – we hope you understand.⚡
Because of the pandemic we are working with a much-reduced pool of volunteers (because of age-group constraints) so we have reduced our hours to ensure we stay open and provide you all with a service.
We have HAND-SANITISER outside the main door – PLEASE use it – and disposable gloves for choosing the fruit and veg products outside. We have to make sure people keep the statutory 2 metres apart, so we’d be grateful if you would check before entering that there isn’t anybody else shopping in our narrow aisles – a short wait will keep everybody from potential cross-contamination.
PLEASE WEAR A MASK – we have some for sale if you forget yours.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation in these peculiar times.
Opening hours – until further notice
Monday to Friday
10am – 4pm
Saturday 10am – 2pm
Sunday 10am – 12:30pm
Peter Cooks Bread are back up and running and delivering to our shop again: there will be previously-placed regular orders and a few spares. If you’d like to make sure of getting your teeth into this fabulous food, please place an order in the shop by Tuesdays for delivery on Satutrdays.
Spectacularly delicious Vegan croissants are now available to pre-order, by Tuesday, for Saturday.
Whitbourne Community Shop is a local convenience store that stocks all the staples. And if it doesn’t, you can usually ask for them to be ordered if there’s a reasonable chance they’ll sell.
We don’t pretend to compete with the supermarkets on price but there are many items from Apples to Zucchini at or below what you can expect to pay in Bromyard or Worcester. And if you take account of the saving on time and fuel you’ll see that shopping in the village makes sense.
Our speciality is local food. We have carefully made, high-quality bread, cakes, chutney, wine, beer, cider, juices – all from within a 30-mile radius.
Whitbourne Village Shop is owned by its shareholders and run by volunteers. The profits we make are re-invested in the Shop and the community.
You will find us in the village, next to the pub – The Live Inn at Whitbourne.
Our phone number is 01 886 821 867
