Coronavirus update 26 June 2020

A big thank you to all our wonderful customers for your support over the last three months. The first few weeks of the lockdown were very difficult for us dealing with the dramatic changes affecting all aspects of our business.

In recent weeks we have re-organised the business, employed additional help and now have a functioning delivery service in conjunction with Savills the Butchers, in addition to the village shop and post office.

Extended opening hours

From Sunday 5th July, we’ll be extending our opening hours as follows:

Monday – Friday 7.30am-5.30pm

Saturday 7.30am-2pm

Sunday 8am-12pm

Placing orders for collection or delivery

You can continue to submit orders via email to garydeare@aol.com or by phoning the shop during our new extended opening hours (above) on 01803 842148. If you happen to forget any items, please use a follow up email.

If you have any questions or queries about seasonal produce or other items ahead of placing an order, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We’re now in a position to take on additional customers if you or anyone you know may want to utilise our personal, friendly and flexible service.

Deliveries

We will continue to serve all of our existing customers for as long as they need us, and have allocated Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays for deliveries going forward. Collection can be arranged at any time to suit the customer.

To ensure we provide you with the freshest produce, we are introducing a cut-off time of 12 noon the day before, for customers placing an order for delivery.

We will be introducing geographical deliveries on our delivery days, and will continue to be flexible and do our best to deliver at a time that is most convenient for you.

As usual, we will contact you via telephone when your order has been put together in the shop to confirm the amount and day/time of delivery. Please don’t hesitate to confirm with us if you are unsure.

Shop visits

We will still be applying the government guidelines on social distancing to protect our staff and customers. Please still enter one customer (or family) at a time, entering from the front and exiting via the side door. While queuing please maintain a two meter gap.

Post Office

If you have a number of parcels to post and would like to avoid queuing, please contact us on 01803 842148 to make special arrangements.

Shop local and support our local suppliers (3)

Shopping local to support local suppliers has never been more important under the current circumstances. This week, we’d like to sing the praises of two local suppliers currently stocking the freezer in our shop with their delicious frozen ready meals and pies. Both available to purchase in the shop and to order for delivery.

We’ve been stocking a tasty selection of locally produced quality frozen ready meals from Heat and Eat Exmoor Kitchen for a few years now. Made with locally sourced ingredients, you can Chicken Curry , Beef Lasagne and Cottage Pie amongst our stock alongside vegetarian options including Green Lentil and Vegetable Lasagne and Three Bean & Sweet Potato Casserole.

Clive’s Pies’ tasty organic ‘free from’ veggie pies and ready meals are made with lots of exciting fresh vegetables – not to mention 100% recyclable packaging . Our favourites include the Gluten Free Mushroom & Leek, Aloo Gobi and French Cassoulet Pies.

Give us a call or email garydeare@aol.com for more information.

An update on stock

As many of you will already be aware, we have seen an increased demand across many supplies which has led to difficulties with stock availability. Many producers are also reducing their product lines owing to supply chain issues, which means some general grocery products and varieties are no longer available.

We are working hard with our suppliers to make products available where possible, and below you can find a quick update on availability of products in the shop and for order.

Flour

We are no longer having difficulties supplying bread flour and this is now readily available to buy in store or order for delivery.

Self-raising flour is also coming in slowly and customers can order in advance if they so wish. Plain flour has returned to near normal supplies, as has yeast.

Supplies of speciality flour are still very erratic, so please request in advance and we will do our best to source these for you.

Fresh products

Fresh products are still readily available, especially where we use local suppliers. We have English strawberries, new season Cornish potatoes, asparagus (from just up the road), broad beans, rhubarb and new season New Zealand Cox’s apples plus a large range of exotic fruit.

And, if you’re looking to mix up your mushroom intake, chestnut mushrooms are also now available.

If you have any questions about stock availability, please give us a call on 01803 842148 or contact us here

Wool Compost delivery

We’ve recently taken a delivery for a new supply of Peat Free Wool Compost for Potting from Dalefoot Composts.

If you’ve not seen any of our recent posts on compost from Dalefoot, this new addition to our stock is a blend of sheep’s wool and bracken. Made wholly in the UK, it is described as  a ‘professional growing medium with consistent performance and reliable results’.

We have a small supply down at the shop; alternatively if you are after more than one bag, you can pay in the shop and collect from our storage area in the village.

Give us a call on 01803 842148 or contact us here for more information. 

Supplies donated to Brixham Food Bank

Thanks to donations from our lovely customers, we’ve sent off a box full of supplies just like the one below to Brixham Food Bank each week during the lockdown. 

Did you know you can donate to Brixham Food Bank via Galleon Stores? All you need to do is arrange with us to credit your account up to a value of your choice. We will then arrange supplies up to this value, to be delivered and donated on your behalf.

Alternatively, you can ask to round up your bill and we will use the remaining value towards a donation.  

For more information, give us a call on 01803 842148 or contact us here.

Thank you for your cooperation with orders

Thank you to those customers who are placing orders with us and following our general guidelines after our recent post.

We really appreciate your cooperation, which is helping us to continue to support our customers and make the ordering and delivery process as smooth and efficient as possible.
