Expanding the Galleon 100 Club in 2021

Subject to the pandemic, it is our intention to expand the Galleon 100 Club in 2021.

The club is designed to establish a simple partnership between Galleon Stores and its customers, focusing on living and buying more sustainably. We want to work together to move the shop forward, promoting and supporting produce from local suppliers, reducing plastic and food waste, using ethical companies and more.

If you’re interested to hear more about the Galleon 100 Club and want to make a New Year’s resolution to live more sustainably and support small, local suppliers, we would be more than happy to have a chat with you. Email or give us a call on 01803 842148.

Help with posting parcels, international Christmas post and Christmas stamps

If any of our delivery customers need parcels posting, or overseas Christmas post taken care of, we can help. 

Simply pass your parcel or overseas post to our driver on delivery of your goods, we’ll arrange posting and charge you the following week. We can also take orders for Royal Mail Christmas stamps to and charge as part of your regular delivery.

To make sure your post arrives in time for Christmas, we’ve shared some of the some of the latest Royal Mail recommended posting dates here.

Food bank for Christmas

We are still making deliveries to Brixham Food Bank every Friday. As well as tinned and dried goods, we are now sending bags of potatoes and oranges/satsumas.

If any of our customers would like to donate, you can do so in one of two ways. We have a box in the shop for you to drop off any goods you wish to donate; alternatively you can make a monetary donation and we will provide the goods on your behalf.
