Grindleford community shop in the vestry of St Helen’s church was set up to provide a local shop for the community. It sells artisan bread from Welbeck bakery as well as a range of local products. Tea, coffee and locally baked cakes are also available.
OUR OPENING HOURS Mon to Fri 10am to 4pm, Sat 9am to 5pm, Sunday 12 to 4 pm
- New Managers
Peter is due to step back from the role of manager but will continue as a volunteer at the shop. We are very grateful for the effort that he has put in to running and improving the shop in the last two years.
We are pleased that we are able to announce two part-time replacements. Kaori Carter has already started working alongside Peter and many of you will have met her by now. She is also the person that produces the Kimchi, which has proved a popular line at the shop. In the New Year, Kaori will be joined by Fiona Outram in a job-share of the manager’s role. We wish them every success with this.
- Windows in the door
The door to the shop now has two glass panels installed by our local village joiner Steve Harby. These have been of great value during cold spell when the door is shut. Customers can see that the shop is open and volunteers can also see approaching customers. A small change that has had a big impact.
- New Fridges
The refrigerated display cabinet in the shop has been replaced by two new fridges. The provide better refrigeration as well as allowing more products to be on display and accessible to customers.
Restrictions have been lifted but we ask customers to take care not to pass infections on to volunteers and other customers. Please use the hand sanitiser provided.
