Cattistock Stores opening hours

Thank you to the amazing group of volunteers who have been keeping the Shop open from 8.30 to 12pm each day and all those involved with deliveries and organisation in the background. From the 5th of July the closing time will change to 1.00pm.

There will continue to be a restriction of 3 people in the shop at any one time. Please help us by trying to keep a 1 + metre distance from each other and staff and it will continue to be necessary to wear face masks. We have installed a Perspex screen on the counter to protect customers and staff.

If you do not feel comfortable to enter the shop, we would encourage you to phone for a home delivery on 01300 320250 (before 11am please) and one of the lovely volunteers will be happy to deliver your order that afternoon/ next day. Alternatively you can phone your order through, we will box it up for you and bring it out to your car. Payment can be made by card over the phone.

We are making every effort to keep you supplied with the produce you need in these difficult times. Stock availability is almost back to normal, but we are still experiencing difficulties with a few lines.

The Post Office is open 9am to 12pm, Monday to Saturday. Maiden Newton Post Office will be open from 9am to 1pm Monday to Saturday. (Maiden Newton Shop is now open until 8am – 7pm each day (9am – 6pm Sundays))

Thank you for all your support during this period and please continue to use us now that things are a little more relaxed.

The Stores




The Cattistock Stores and Post Office is a family owned store run by Andy Hodder and his wife Donna, who have owned the store from May 2013. Andy and Donna also own the store at Maiden Newton and since becoming owners of the two village stores extensive work has been carried out to improve the appearance and character of the buildings. The fully refurbished Cattistock Stores and Post Office is now light and airy and plays host to a delightful Tea Room.

‘We always do our best to stock local produce. Our local Dorset suppliers provide us with the finest locally sourced produce, from a wide range of cheeses to quality meats. Our aim is to make our customers happy and keep the shelves well stocked with plenty of monthly offers and is a very friendly place to shop.

Join us on Facebook to keep up to date with inside shop news, local events, new stock and future developments.

We fully encourage customers to shop at smaller independent stores so comments and requests from customers are always welcome.

So pop into the store or email us or call Andy and Donna on 01300 320250.
