Post Office Opening

After a tremendously busy couple of weeks we hope that everyone has now posted their parcels and cards. Sadly, due to some unexpected staffing challenges we need to slightly amend our opening hours from the original plan, so here is our new schedule. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Monday 21st December – 9am – 5pm
  • Tuesday 22nd December – 9am – 5pm
  • Wednesday 23rd December – 9am – 1pm
  • Thursday 24th December – 9am – 1pm
  • Tuesday 29th December – 9am – 1pm
  • Wednesday 30th December – 9am – 5pm
  • Thursday 31st December – 9am – 1pm
  • Saturday 2nd January – 9am – 1pm

Back to normal service on Monday 4th January.

Christmas Newsletter

Our bumper Christmas newsletter is now available. We won’t be delivering it to households in the area this year but you can pick up a copy in the shop or download a copy here. It has all the important information about posting dates, shop and PO opening hours during the festive period, and ordering details for turkeys, meat, fruit and vegetables, bread and milk. There’s advice about posting and present ideas, and articles about our wonderful array of cheeses and port to go with them.

Super Saturday

We were due to have our third “alternative tasting” on Saturday 21st November, but sadly, due to the Covid-19 restrictions, we were unable to offer this. Instead, we came up with Super Saturday! For one day only, the following offers applied:

  • 5% off all cheeses
  • 10% off all wines
  • 10% off port

Shop Numbers

Please may we gently remind everyone of our restricted numbers in the shop – we’ve had a few instances recently of too many people at any one time. Most of our regular customers have been brilliant and very understanding, however we sometimes have not so local customers who don’t see our signs and come straight into the shop. Unfortunately it’s not always possible for our staff to see everyone as they come in, especially when they are busy serving.

So, we’d be very appreciative if you could continue to observe the requests, check before you enter and please be understanding if our staff ask you to wait for a few minutes.Hope you all appreciate we are following these protocols to protect our customers as well as our staff – let’s all help keep Woodgreen Community Shop a safe place to shop for all.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

  • 3 customers in the shop
  • 2 customers for the Post Office – one at the counter and one queueing

Should you wish to move from shop to Post Office or vice versa please return to the door if your presence will be more than the requested numbers – you can go to the front of the queue!
