THE SHOP HAS A NEW TELEPHONE NUMBER 07354 152 447

This number will be the telephone point of contact for the shop during construction of the new extension. It can also receive SMS (text) messages.  Emails and messenger will work as before, see https://broughtonvillagestore.co.uk/contact/.  We will let you know when we can receive WhatsApp communications. Our previous landline number (830465) has been disconnected

WE HAVE CROSSED THE ROAD!

It’s been a long time in planning but we have now moved Broughton Village Store to temporary premises next to the Village Hall, on the other side of the A701. The temporary shop is already full of all your favourite items, and will be stocked with our regular deliveries as before. Jen and staff look forward to seeing you!
 
The shop hours remain the same:
Monday – Saturday 7am – 6pm                                            
Sunday 9am – 2pm
 
 WE NOW HAVE A NICE NEW STRIPEY AWNING!
 
PRE-AWNING
 
The move is to allow the construction of a new extension, with new storage and office facilities all on one level. This is a complex logistical build and is likely to take the rest of the year to complete. There will inevitably be disruption to the pavement, roadway, and properties closest to the building work, which we will endeavour to keep to a minimum. We have already spoken to many of those living near the shop, but if you have any concerns or queries please feel free to get in touch. There will also be occasional updates on Facebook.
 
work begins!

We are currently in the process of extending the shop. With funding now largely in place, we acknowledge the assistance, both historic and ongoing from:
