Emily House, a worker at Single Step, shares their wholesome news...
Single Step is a wholefood shop run co-operatively by its six members.
We are passionate about making fairly produced, organic, vegan, food available at reasonable prices with as little packaging and waste as possible.
After a brief closure to carry out some DIY work and review our COVID plans, we are excited to have our doors back open. We are also pleased to offer a new click and collect service where you can order and pay for your shopping on-line at shop.singlestep.org.uk.
For those who can’t get to the shop during the day, we are now open until 7pm on a Thursday.
Our current opening times are: Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday: 10 am – 5.30 pm. Wednesday: 12 pm – 5.30 pm. Thursday: 10am – 7pm
You can stock-up on courgettes, spring onions, cherry tomatoes, basil, french beans and lettuce fresh from local farms: Ward and Thompson in Preesall and Fold House Farm in Pilling. We also have lots of fruit and vegetables from the Organic North wholesalers, a workers’ co-operative based in Manchester. All of our fruit and veg is organic and none of it has been air freighted.
We have cereals, grains, pulses, dried fruit, nuts, pasta and over 130 herbs and spices available to buy loose. You can bring in your own containers and our zero-waste scales will remember the weight each time you come in.
You can also top-up on tamari, cider vinegar and Lancashire grown and produced rapeseed oil from our recycled glass dispensers.
You can refill any container with washing-up liquid, multi-surface cleaner, laundry liquid, fabric conditioner, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap and even Green oil for your bike chain at our self-service refill station.
For the safety of staff and customers we are limiting the number of customers in the shop to four at a time. There are three sanitizing stations, a screened counter, floor marked zoning in the shop and we will bag up your loose goods for you. You can buy a face mask made by the Lancaster Sewing Café in store and we also stock recycled plastic ‘No Touch Tools’ made by Precious Plastics Lancaster.
Find us down the alley, below the vegetarian Whale Tail Cafe at, 78a Penny Street, LA1 1XN
