Welcome to Metfield Stores

“Our community shop is the heart of the village”


Metfield Village Stores is a friendly and welcoming community-run store, located in the centre of an idyllic village, nestled in the heart of the beautiful Waveney Valley.  The store aims to provide a wide range of food, drink, newspapers and general groceries from competitively-priced everyday necessities to luxury goods.

Whether you live locally and need supplies, or are passing through and fancy a snack, come and see us. Can we tempt you with cake or bread from one of our local suppliers, or a freshly made sandwich or coffee? Other produce from the Metfield area includes meat, eggs, beers and greetings cards. The store also sells sweets and ice creams, a wide selection of wine, stamps, cleaning products, pet foods, provides photocopying and is an agent for Danes Dry Cleaning Service.

Metfield Village Stores is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company run by volunteers.  To join our friendly team of helpers just pop in and see us or email your contact details.   (info@metfieldstores.co.uk)
