Would you like a community run supermarket in your neighbourhood? It would be run by you and your neighbours and you’ll decide what goes on the shelves. Fresh, seasonal local produce, healthy and ethically sourced items!
Kingsley Hall and Every One Every Day are teaming up to explore the idea and we need you, your ideas and your knowledge of the local area.
This is an amazing opportunity to build a shop on your street, create a healthier neighbourhood and become a part of a hub of activity on Martin’s Corner.
How does a community-run supermarket work?
Residents receive a discount on their weekly shop in exchange for working shifts in store. Shifts will be flexible so the hours can be organised to fit with your everyday life.
Training will be provided so you’ll gain skills in everything from stock management, customer service, processing payments and much more. The really important part is that it is affordable and accessible. We will work together to build relationships with local stock providers and ensure the supermarket is for everyone.
5 Porters Avenue, Dagenham, RM9 5YS
This will truly be a neighbourhood supermarket when everyone gets together. If you were unable to make the last session in autumn, pop along to this session to share ideas, meet residents and get your Neighbourhood Supermarket up and running!
