There has been a village shop in Amberley for many years and it was moved to its present place in The Barn in 1998.
Colin Woods has owned Amberley Village Stores since 2001.
He has kept the traditional village shop atmosphere and introduced new lines such as Amberley Village Stores' own label items including pickles, jams, marmalade, biscuits and sweets – not only delicious but they make great gifts.
Colin and his staff run a friendly village shop with a sub Post Office, the kind of place that is the hub of village life.
Local produce is a speciality, many items such as milk, cream, wine, fruit and vegetables are sourced from suppliers in nearby villages, helping the local economy and reducing ‘food miles'.
