You can find out more about the whole subject of Community Shops from Plunkett Foundation. The Plunkett Foundation is the only national organisation supporting community-owned village shops across the UK.
There are now approaching 300 community owned shops trading in England, Scotland and Wales and many of these have been established with support from Plunkett.
They have a dedicated Community Retail Team and service to support rural communities wanting to set up and run a community-owned shop, and to also support and advise existing community owned village shops.
