You may have read in the Stroud News and Journal and/or Stroud Life this week that there are plans afoot for yet another large supermarket in Stroud. You may also have read the excellent piece below by Stroud Life editor, Jason Chare, in his “The Editor says…” column in 12th June edition (click on the image to read it in full).
We at Stroudco are firmly of the belief that this supermarket is not necessary and that we and you, our producers and consumers, should be following Jason Chare in encouraging Stroud residents to buy their groceries from local producers.
Stroudco is, of course, by far the easiest way to do this. Simply order from our website and you can have fresh, locally produced goods delivered to your door every Saturday.
All of our producers either make or harvest their goods on the Saturday morning, or freeze and can them immediately at source. So, please spread the news of Stroudco far and wide, and order as often as you can. To blatantly paraphrase a well-known supermarket chain - every little really does help!
Stroudco is also Stroud’s only not-for-profit co-operative, bringing together an exclusive range of local, artisan food and drinks. Many of our producers have no other retail outlet.
