Another reason to love Fridays!
While we are totally committed to make a thriving success of this business and hopefully pioneer some positive changes for the local economy and the health of the planet; we do have to fit it around other jobs and commitments. To make this possible, the process for buying through Local Loop Clowne will fit into a once weekly cycle.
Orders are placed through our website and will be available for you on Friday each week. You can choose to click & collect from Portland Street in Clowne between 10am-5pm or opt for delivery to your home between 5-7pm. Delivery applies to Clowne and Barlborough only, but customers from surrounding villages are very welcome to place orders for collection. The cut-off each week is midnight on Wednesday, which will allow us time to gather items from the businesses we’re supporting and get your orders ready.
Our hope is that you’ll remember to check in with us every so often to see if there are any local or sustainable alternatives to some of the items you’d normally get from the supermarket. Maybe you might come to us for a fresh bag of salad, grown just up the road at Happy Roots Farm. Maybe you fancy some hand-cooked crisps for a Friday night treat; and ours just happen to come in a nice compostable packet.
Maybe reducing your plastic is a goal but you can’t change everything all at once, so you head back here each time you’re ready to try a new swap. Perhaps next time you need to buy a gift, you check our range of locally handmade products and buy from a small business before heading straight to the big brands. If lots of us start to make changes like these, little by little we can begin to make a BIG difference.
This is just the beginning of something which we hope will grow and which we will have confidence to invest in and expand. But for now, we’re dipping our toes in to see how many of you are ready for a change….
