Welcome to St Dominick Community Shop.
When our local shop owners notified the village that they were planning to retire and close the shop, residents of St Dominick got together to discuss if it was possible for us to run our own community owned shop. A year later and we are very close to opening.
Much work has been done by so many, we would not have got this far without the generosity of the people who live here. Please have a look in the gallery photographs to see a record of our journey.
We hope to open in the Autumn of 2020 but our plan is to really establish and grow the business during 2021 and all the volunteers look forward to seeing friends and neighbours supporting this village initiative.
We would also like to acknowledge all the organisations that have supported us with advice and financial support. They are St Mabyn Community Shop, St Dominick Parish Council, The Plunkett Foundation, Cornwall Community Foundation, Cornwall Council Community Chest, The Co-operative Bank and the Who’d Have Thought It Inn.
We are set up as a Community Benefit Society so once we are established and begin to make a surplus we will be supporting projects and ideas that benefit the whole village. When people spend their money in the shop they will be investing in the future of the village.
We hope to see you shopping with us soon …
