Burrington Community Shop is a community owned shop in the centre of the village. It was formed after the closure of the previous commercial shop in 2014 (See “history of shop” for more details).

We are a “Community Business Society”, registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (no. 7123). This means that it is a “not for profit” society owned by local shareholders and all profits are fed back into the Community (including making improvements to the shop).

The shop provides as many items as practical to serve the local area. Obviously, we can only sensibly stock items that our customers will purchase and we have to recognise that home deliveries from major supermarkets is a modern way of life. However, we are able to undercut the supermarkets on some lines and we pride ourselves on stocking as much as we can from local producers. For example, bakery items come from Chulmleigh Bakery, eggs are from a free range farm in Burrington, milk and cream are from a farm/dairy near Okehampton, our pies and pasties are from near Holsworthy, cakes and pastries are made in Burrington and we have preserves from a manufacturer near Tiverton.

shopBakery products are delivered on Tuesday, and Saturday. Milk and cream arrive on Tuesday and Friday. All can be ordered in advance (especially if you wish to buy skimmed milk). Please try to support your local shop. There are many people who rely on being able to use a shop in the village, but we need others to, at least, do “top up” shopping with us instead of travelling further afield. Thank you to everybody who has supported us up until now and we hope you will continue to give us your support.

The Coronavirus situation over the last couple of years or so caused a huge increase in trade and orders. Our volunteers have done a fantastic job in dealing with the orders and keeping our shelves stocked. Please consider keeping your orders with the shop as we try to provide a great service to the village.

Should there be items that you can’t find, please let us know – either using the “suggestions” booklet in the shop, contacting one of the committee or telling Molly or Faye.

We are always looking to add to the number of volunteers. Using the principle “many hands make light work” we would welcome a couple of extra people to help with the operation – either regularly or to cover for holidays/sickness.

The drawing of the shop above was picked before we had a home and it was retained as our logo as it is quite a recognisable depiction of a village shop.
