About Boxies

Boxies can’t be described by a single word. It’s an amalgamation of a small village shop, a local cafe, and a creative space available to the entire community. Our main goal is to provide our community with a convenient village shop where you can find your favourite goods without spending a small fortune. Boxies is a place for you to have some fun with family and friends without having to drive miles away from home.

Who We Are

Boxies is not only locally owned, but also employs local people and provides locally-sourced produce wherever possible. We want to help our community in every sense of the word by providing a healthy and fun alternative for the residents of Boxgrove, as well those visiting the area. We are a group of dedicated individuals who come together to create a fun environment for our team members, customers, and providers alike.

 

You may be asking yourself, why are we different than any other village shop? Well, for starters, we’re a store that is designed for the community, by the community. If you have any ideas about meals, events, activities, or products you would like to see, simply let us know by filling in our online contact form or by dropping off your ideas in our suggestion box at the shop.

 

Unlike most other business ventures, Boxies came as a result of a combination of different factors. Our beloved Boxgrove Village Stores was on the market and in danger of closing down, so we stepped in to stop that from happening.

 

From this wild idea, Boxies was born, a safe, social space for the community where you can find your daily goods without having to go into one of the busy supermarkets in town. Our goal is to give everyone in our village a voice and allow our community members to contribute in one way or another.

 

Sustainability is one of our main concerns, so we aim to reduce the amount of plastic and unsustainable materials we use at the shop. Not only this, we provide recycled or recyclable takeaway boxes and cutlery, including paper boxes and biodegradable utensils. We also encourage our customers to bring in their own mugs and reduce the amount of waste we produce through special promotions and sustainability incentives.

 

Boxies wants to deliver high-quality products and provide delicious and healthy meals that you can enjoy in our cozy seating area. Whenever possible, we use organic fruits and vegetables, responsibly-sourced meats, fish, and dairy products, and quality cold meats. At the same time, we provide homemade ready meals that you can take away in convenient packages and heat up whenever it suits you best!

 

You can expect a combination of healthy ingredients, homemade comfort recipes, and traditional British cuisine with a modern twist!

 

What We Do

Boxies works as both a local cafe and a village shop. The village shop is designed to cater to your everyday needs, so you will be able to find your favourite newspapers, staple foods, toiletries, fresh vegetables, everyday conveniences, fruits, meats, and more.

You can also come and enjoy a cup of something, and as long as we’re not too busy, our staff members would be more than happy to have a natter with you. In addition to this, we will also be providing a creative area where we will offer activities such as workshops, crafts, arts, cooking courses, games, themed events, and other fun undertakings!

Hours Of Operation

We will be open 7 days a week, from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday and 8:00 am to 2:00 pm on the weekends. Note that weekend times may vary if we have an event or activity going on!

Both the village shop and cafe will be open during our business hours, so we will be serving snacks, tea, and coffee as well as all of our products from opening until closing.
