In addition to sourcing local food with lower food miles, community shops save rural residents car journeys to alternative food stores, saving on average an 8 mile round trip. Community shops collectively are estimated to save 4 million miles of car journeys a year.

St Dominick Community Shop actively supports a number of local traders:
Blakes Bakery. Trewithen Dairy. Paul Atkins Fishmongers. The Cornish Sourdough Company. Whistlefish Cards. Langage Farm.

Thanks to The Norman Family Trust grant award, our new benches have arrived at their home outside the Community Shop. Ready for you all to rest, have a chat with friends and enjoy some sunshine. Llloyd, Sarah and Dave are trying them out for size – cushions and ice cream required for the spring/summer and perhaps blankets and cake for the autumn/winter

A big thank you to the organisations who gave us support during the set-up phase of the community shop.

St Dominick Community Shop is pleased to announce … WE ARE OPEN!

Opening Hours

Sensible Covid restrictions will apply in and around the Community Shop – so please remember to wear a face-mask, use the sanitiser and keep your distance!

Please do come along soon to have a look, say hi to the Shop Volunteers, and of course come in and buy something! If it looks busy, then please be patient and simply wait your turn.


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 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. So please support St Dominick Community Shop by subscribing for shares of £10 each.

We hope to see you shopping with us soon …
