Penicuik Storehouse

As a social enterprise we have set ourselves a mission to bring people together and make our community resilient. In our shop we stock fresh produce, groceries, household products and toiletries that are local, environmentally friendly, organic, or fair trade to enable to help people live a healthier more sustainable life. In our cafe we serve healthy soups, toasties and coffee and provide a place for people to meet.
However, we are just more than that. We have received funding for an exciting climate change project, we are building a training kitchen and we are developing an indoor market hall, as well as spaces for workshops and events. We are proud to work together with a variety of other community projects and charities.
