#SNOW2018: We are open

Posted on Mar 1, 2018 in News

Alston Wholefoods open for customers during the extreme weather

Thanks to the sterling work of our Co-op members, Tommy Sheriff and Claire Driver, who live in the heart of Alston, we have been able to keep the shop open as usual during this spell of extreme weather. All the roads out of Alston are currently impassable.

As visitors to the shop will know we always keep our shelves very well stocked, which means we are able to cope with eventualities such as this. As well as specialising in cheese (with lots of these to choose from), we are a general grocer, offering almost everything you need for your larder, as well as some ready-to-eat meals.
