Extended opening hours

As the weather improves and the growing season begins, we are expecting to become busier. To enable everyone to shop safely, we are extending our opening hours as follows:

Every Saturday from 6th March (until 12th June) we will be open from 8 am to 6 pm

We chose to begin the longer hours on Saturdays because typically it is the most popular time to shop. We expect to become busier still from the beginning of April, so with the arrival of lighter evenings, we are further extending our opening hours:

From 30th March (until 10th June) we will open on a Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30 am to 8 pm

We are restricting the number of people we allow in the shop at any one time to allow safe social distancing, so we hope that these extra hours will reduce the likelihood of queues and enable more people to shop. We have a greater number of tills open now so queues should be reduced at the checkouts.

Please note if you are looking for a quieter time to shop, generally weekday mornings before 10 am and on the late openings days after 5 pm are less busy.

The Compost Drive-Thru will be open for the same extended hours as above.

The Coffee Shop Takeaway service will remain open the normal hours – 9 am-4 pm (Mon-Sat) and 9.30 am-3.30 pm on Sundays.
