Welcome to The Shop at Strood Green!

The Shop at Strood Green is an award-winning community shop set up and run by the residents living in and around Strood Green, near Brockham in Surrey.  

The shop opened its doors on 21 March 2009. For the whole story, read our History.

A dedicated team of volunteers has created a true village shop, at the heart of the community, where people come not just to shop, but to meet and exchange news, conversation and laughter. Our emphasis is on customer service. 

Right from the start, the shop has surpassed all expectations. And it's not just the shop that is thriving - the little cafe area at the back of the shop has also taken off, with people popping in regularly for a cup of tea or coffee and a chat. On sunny days the tables outside are always occupied, too.



Shop From Back 

The shop sells newspapers, magazines, dairy and plenty of regular groceries, alongside a good range of locally sourced products: jams, chutneys, cheeses, butters, icecream, sausages and bacon, homemade cakes, scones, local seasonal vegetables, pies, pastries, wines and ales. We have OVER 20 local suppliers!

Sandwiches are made on site, plus we offer a bakery - several varieties of fresh breads, baguettes and pastries are baked on site every day.

Other services 

We have two internet terminals for public use, and a public high-volume, A4 photocopier which also serves as a good quality printer  for the computers, plus free WiFi. The shop has its own Post Point, which enables residents to send letters and parcels nationally and internationally, with special delivery and recorded delivery available. It is one of a tiny handful of shops in the country pioneering such a service.

A Paypoint terminal allows household and general bills to be paid for by cash, as well as mobile phone e-top-ups and the London congestion charge. The shop also offers free cashback on purchases of £5 or over. In this way we are offering as many services normally provided by a post office as possible.


Our constitution

We are an Industrial and Provident Society for the benefit of the community, which means that surplus profits do not end up in private pockets - instead, they can be distributed to good causes in the village and surrounds. The Shop at Strood Green has always been very well supported, and has one of the highest rates of community ownership for community shops in the country.
