All Good Market in St Paul’s Street, Stamford operates delivery service in lockdown
The owner of a sustainable store in Stamford has set up a delivery service to reach more people in lockdown.
The third national lockdown pushed forward Annabel Britton’s plans to launch a website for her shop in St Paul’s Street, All Good Market.
“I wanted to be able to reach customers self-isolating or generally staying at home because that’s what we are supposed to do,” said Annabel, who lives in Greatford.
“I started doing it informally as I had people contacting me.”
She added: “A lot of people in my village said they wanted to come see the shop but didn’t want to go out. I still want them to enjoy the shop.”
Annabel opened All Good Market at the end of October, after becoming frustrated at the lack of environmentally friendly food shops in the area.Since then she has had to battle through two lockdowns and the tier system.
“This lockdown, sales and turnover have been down 50 per cent from November and December, which is hard because November was also a lockdown.
“I was only open for 10 days before the November lockdown and then we were put into tier 3.
“I don’t have a picture of what my normal would be like.”
Annabel will be delivering the produce in paper bags to follow her environmentally friendly ethos.
She is also appealing for donations of bottles which she can deliver a new range of cleaning products in.
