Village Shop and Post Office

The shop is a “not for profit” venture and any profits will be reinvested to improve the business or used to support other community activities. The aim is to provide a selection of quality, locally produced fare not generally found in supermarkets and at competitive prices.
The Post Office is housed within the Village Shop and from Tuesdays to Fridays provides a range of services including banking and cash withdrawal facilities for customers of the Alliance and Leicester, Barclays, Co-operative Bank and Lloyds TSB. In addition, standard tariff postage stamps are available during the normal opening hours of the shop.

  1. I cycle up to Sulgrave shop regularly from Marston St Lawrence although at the moment I am so unfit that I have to walk up the hill!

    I always receive a friendly welcome from David and all the volunteer staff. Unless the weather prevents me I do most of my food shopping there- my family particularly like the bread and the Tropicana orange juice and I even buy the delicious Belvoir elderflower presse for friends and neighbours. On Tuesday I obtained everything on my shopping list and more stuffing my bicycle panniers with numerous bottles and packets – it is much easier on the back than carrying it from the supermarket to the car.

    The shop provides a marvellous service to the community but will only be able to continue if it is well supported.

  2. Sulgrave Shop Volunteer says:

    I’m a volunteer worker at the shop and like many others I give my time freely to ensure that our village continues to enjoy the benefits of shopping close to home. However, it is very nice indeed to read comments such as Clare’s and may she long continue to cycle up that steep hill to do her daily shopping.
