Cattistock Stores opening hours

We have an amazing group of volunteers who are going to help keep the Shop open from 8.30 to 12pm each day.

We have to operate these times due to the ‘lock down’, staff away from work and the need to keep close contact to a minimum.

There will be a restriction of 2 people in the shop at any one time. Please help us by trying to keep a 2 metre distance from each other and staff.

To save you leaving your home we would encourage you to phone for a home delivery on 01300 321190 before 1pm and one of the lovely volunteers will endeavor to deliver your order that afternoon.

We are making every effort to keep you supplied with the produce you need in these difficult times. Please do not ask for more than you need as we are trying to help as many people as possible.

The Post Office will be closed temporarily at Cattistock, but we will try to open it when staff availability allows. Maiden Newton Post Office will be open from 9am to 12.30pm Monday to Saturday. (The Shop will be closing at 1pm to enable us to put deliveries together)

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

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, which is run by Michelle, 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.
