The St Erth Shop & Post office is having to consider shutting its doors in the New Year.  Please help us help the village keep the Post Office open, this is an amazing and valuable amenity for our village.  If every household within St Erth made a commitment to buy 3 to 4 items every week this would enable us to keep both facilities open you for.
We have a great Product range with many Premium items locally sourced some of which are Trevarthen farm butchers, Blakes bakery and Mounts bay dairy’s all at supermarket prices.
We support local Cornish businesses so please support us.  If you would like any more information or special item please just ask.
