We Built a Shop!
This summer, we (ahem, mainly Jamie) have been busy creating a proper, in-real-life, plastic-free greengrocers shop at Prow Park in Newquay. We’re excited to announce that it’s now open for business! We’ve been running our home-delivery service from here for a while now as FruutBox had grown too big to be run from our kitchen table and a shipping container on our driveway, and this gives us a central location with good transport links. The unit is quite big though, and being surrounded by other consumer facing businesses, we quickly decided to fit out the front as a plastic free greengrocers. This means that customers can now collect their orders if the delivery day for their postcode isn’t convenient, and also that you can also visit to shop for plastic-free fruit and veg. We’re just around the corner from Morrisons and Lidl, so really well situated for local residents doing a grocery shop.
The shop stocks everything that is available on our website (because we hold all stock and pick and pack all of the FruutBoxes here) – fruit, vegetables, dry goods such as pasta and rice, artisan bread and fresh plant milks. We’ll also be carrying some additional funky and in-season fruit and veg. We’re also stocking a small selection of non-food plastic free/zero waste items such as cotton produce bags, vegan wax food wraps, and amber glass bottles.
Prow Park is an amazingly forward thinking business park on Treloggan Industrial Estate, with most of the units (like ours) made from converted shipping containers. You’ll find us on the front section looking onto the car park as you drive in. There are some amazing takeaways in this part of the park, creating a sort of outside food hall, and we're surrounded by some awesome businesses like Cornish Lunch Box, Plastic Freedom, Gorse, Wing Yard, Gridl, Babu and many more!
We’ll be open 10-4 Mon-Fri and 10-2 Saturdays. We’re all set up for card payments and we’ve got a small play shop to keep your budding shopkeepers entertained whilst you stock up.
You can find a map to find us here or if you use What3Words we're markets.backpack.simulates.
We look forward to welcoming some of you soon!
