The shop’s history
Officially “Plymtree Village Shop Association Ltd” but trading as “Plymtree Community Shop”, the shop is owned by shareholders and managed on behalf of shareholders by a management committee elected by shareholders at the AGM held each July/August.
The shop was set up in 2009 by local Plymtree residents following the Post Office closure programme in Devon, which affected Plymtree and also brought about the closure of the only village shop.
PVSA Ltd is registered as a Provident Society and is a non profit organisation with the aim that any operating surplus is returned to the various clubs and organisations active in Plymtree.
The shop is proving to be a valued, sustainable and viable addition to the community.
In May 2015 we appointed Paul Grant as our new manager. Paul is a local resident with considerable retail experience and is continuing the great work that James Carpenter initiated starting up our shop.
