Monday, May 20th, 2024

IMPORTANT NEWS!

Dear Lovely Customers of THE VILLAGE WHOLEFOOD STORE,

I am sad to announce that the time has come for me to retire. Cindy, who has been here, with me for 7 years, has decided to leave at the same time. So, it truly will be the end of an era!

I took over THE VILLAGE WHOLEFOOD STORE in November 2009.  I have really enjoyed meeting and getting to know you all and have learnt so much.  Our sector of the food industry has been through big changes, but we survived. I know that, especially since 2020 everyone has been through so much and we hope we have helped you too, over these 15 years. Thank you so, so much for your support.

Our last trading day will be Saturday 22nd June.   Please call if you would like to order anything in before we go 0208 366 5108!

 

The new owner-managers will be Evran and Yilmas from next door, Forty Hill Food & Wine. They have said that they are happy to keep on some of our healthier popular lines, vitamins, natural remedies and organic fruit/veg too. They will respond to your requests and may well continue our policy of ordering in, especially for you when they can. So, please JUST ASK. It’s up to you!

 

The Village Wholefood Store ORDERS!

If you would like us to get something in for you before we go, we are happy to do so, if we can. Speak to us now.

30% OFF Organic Fruit & Veg (most) every Monday to Wednesday

Monday, February 27th, 2023

To help you save money in these challenging times we are offering 30% OFF most #organic fruit and veg.

Exceptions may apply.

Organic produce has been my passion for 30 years for my own #health but also to protect all wildlife and insects especially bees. Obviously this will help look after the ecosystems  of our home #planet. We only have one. Why poison it?

So my mission is to riase awareness of evryone so they use less chemical themselves and buy organic whenever they can.

Shop local! Go organic!

with love

Jill
