Orford General Store

Orford General Store Logo 5483URegular visitors to Orford will notice a re-styled smaller village shop with a brand new open plan ‘Local’ Post Office. This is located within an enlarged area mainly occupied by the previous Butcher’s Shop. Our specialist Butcher’s Shop has closed, but pre-packed meat items continue to be available in the Shop from our existing suppliers.

The new Post Office service is now available 7 days per week and has the same opening hours as the shop. It provides cash withdrawals, bill payment services, banking, foreign exchange services and a full range of postal services. The old cash machine has been removed.

The majority of previous services and product ranges remain, albeit with fewer lines. Fruit and vegetables, bread and dairy continue to be stocked with a similar selection. The shop has all the basics for a village shop and we will continue to order in other products on request, even if they are not on the shelves.

We offer a full dry cleaning and laundry service from Danes as well as services such as free glasses hire, special orders and home delivery. Pay-station, Lottery, Scratch Cards and Health Lottery are available as well as take-away coffees and packaged snacks. Pies and cheese are served from a small deli counter.

We believe that the new streamlined shop, jointly funded with the Post Office, offers the basic services central to the life of the village.


Opening Hours:

Monday 08.30 - 17.30
Tuesday 08.30 - 17.30
Wednesday 08.30 - 17.30
Thursday 08.30 - 17.30
Friday 08.30 - 17.30
Saturday 08.30 - 17.30
Sunday 10.00 - 16.00

Orford General Store News



Thank you to all our customers for bearing with us with the new shop refit and Post Office move. I recognise that this was an inconvenience for our regular shoppers.

Also a big thank you to my team who have had to do a full stock-take while navigating around the builders.

The new store in Front Street is now open.

As this is a big change for everyone please come on in and have a look round.

It will take a few weeks to adjust the ranges and get their location in the store absolutely right. We have already started stocking some lines for customers in our stock room that will not be in the shop itself. Please talk to me if you are looking for anything that you cannot immediately see.

The Post Office will now be open 7 days per week for all cash withdrawals, banking and posting.

The new meat ordering service is up and running. Store opening hours are 8.30 - 17.30 Monday - Saturday and 10.00 - 16.00 Sunday
