The Penicuik Storehouse is a Community Benefit Society. People have already supported The Storehouse by becoming a member and buying one or more shares. Community benefit societies are run on a democratic one-member-one-vote basis – so all members get a say at the AGM as to how the Storehouse can best serve you and the rest of the community.

Following the exciting news that the Scottish Land Fund have awarded us most of the money to buy the old Scotmid building in the High Street we aim to proceed with the plans to open the ground floor. Now we need to raise another £20,000 to complete the building purchase, the renovations and get the training kitchen, bakery and bigger shop and market area up and running.

We will be launching a new share issue at our shareholders meeting on Oct 1st, 7.30pm Penicuik Town Hall. Shares start and go up by £25 increments.With another £20,000 we will be able to get the community hub that Penicuik needs and deserves.
