What is The Store?
The Store is a small, independent shop which opened in response to the need for taking urgent action towards building a better and more sustainable future. The Store opened as a way of helping people reduce their everyday waste at home, and is Bedford’s first bulk and refill shop. You can buy food and household items without their normal single-use plastic, and The Store aims to have a positive impact on our local environment, community and economy,
The Store sells a range of staple foods loose and in bulk, as well as offering refills on cleaning liquids and shower products. Buying loose saves countless amounts of unnecessary plastic packaging from being manufactured, thrown away and going to landfill, as well as giving us an opportunity to reuse what we have and refill!
The Store also stocks a range of eco-homeware and gifts from a range of Bedfordshire based businesses and makers to support our local economy.
