Vegetarian wholefood nonprofit workers' co-op
Grocery/Bakery/Deli, General Store
One of the largest wholefood workers' co-ops in the UK, with pro-vegan, pro-organic, no sugar, low salt, no GM and no additive policies. Fresh organic bread daily, fresh organic fruit and veg, plus loose (and therefore cheap) herbs, spices, grains, cereal, beans, pulses and dried fruit. Also sells snack bars, crisps (chips) and drinks. Licensed, so stocks organic and vegan wines, beers, ciders, etc.
Not easily wheelchair or stroller accessible, but the staff are happy to lend a hand.
Local community notice boards in the front of the shop, and the basement is used by various nonprofit groups. Upstairs is the Whale Tail Cafe.

From the town centre, head south along Penny Street (one of the pedestrianised shopping streets). After you pass the Oxfam shop on your right, cross the next road, past the temp agency, a couple of other shops, then at the Golden Jade Chinese restaurant, go down the alleyway, and the Whale Tale and Single Step are in front of you - easier to find than it sounds - see map!
