Our suppliers are confident in maintaining their supply of our products. We source items from several family run wholesale businesses and cooperatives. They have regular, loyal drivers and good management policies to prevent disruption.
Local independents are ideally placed to help you enjoy Christmas and we all really appreciate your support when you shop local. Get your orders in early at Angus Butchers (round the corner from us on Blandford Place), we can supply festive fruit & veg (or visit one of the two greengrocers in Church Street) and Fat Unicorn Kitchen & Stores (Bridge St, Sunderland) do some fantastic craft beers, cheese, charcuterie and ready prepared Xmas dinner sides.
We have everything you need (except alcohol) to make your own Christmas Puddings, Christmas Cakes and Mince Pies, and have a wide range of eco friendly gifts and ideas to ensure your Christmas celebration goes without a panic. We can also source specific items with some notice - ideal if you are looking for Gluten Free, Vegan etc. Please come in and talk to us early so we can find you the best products at the best prices!
Our pre-weighed Christmas cake kits come with ingredients and written instructions. We have a traditional and a Vegan option which is super simple and bakes in one hour! We have tried both recipes and can confirm they are both delicious. Order via ShopAppy.com, social media, give us a call or feel free to pop in and and pick one up.
Pick and Mix sweets. Includes Vegan & gluten free selection.
Our bulk Ecoleaf toilet roll used to be delivered in home compostable outer packaging. We have now sourced 'Boxroll' which we will be stocking as an alternative to Ecoleaf. It is also 100% post consumer recycled paper, manufactured in the UK by a family run business. It is delivered to us in cardboard boxes. Each roll has 400 sheets, and runs to 42m in length so should last you longer than the Ecoleaf rolls.
Miniml have recently updated their fragrances. The washing up liquid is now rhubarb & lemon, and is proving popular amongst our regulars.
As well as Ben & Anna we now have a restock of original flavour Truthpaste and their two latest charcoal based varieties.
I've finally got round to adding the Miniml laundry powder to the online store - it's concentrated so 20g will do for most washes. It has the same scent as the laundry liquid and is proving to be a popular addition to the range.
We have some pre filled glass jars, but also the refill in store. This will be delivered in paper bags for home delivery ready for you to transfer into your own container.
Add to your dishwasher to reduce water residue marks. This will be delivered in labelled, reused glass jars and is measured by weight.
I have finally managed to add our 'on tap' liquids to ShopAppy. We have our local cold pressed Rapeseed oil; Extra Virgin Olive Oil; Organic Balsamic and Apple Cider Vinegar and Date Nectar. They are in the 'Tins, Jars & On Tap' drop down on this website!
Overall our suppliers are not indicating widespread price increases. However some have reported large increase in some of their ingredients which will inevitably be passed on. Unlike supermarkets who will try to keep the price & packaging the same but shrink the contents we continue to provide refills - so if we cannot absorb increase then you may notice some of our prices change. The first main change is Miniml & Alter/Native products. Where prices have fallen we have also passed that on (disinfectant hand rub) and will continue to do so where we can!
