News 20 Dec 2018
We hoped by now we would all own 22 The High Street but the solicitors are still ironing out details. We expect to give the good news early in the New Year.
By November 23rd we had reached our target of £25,000 in community share investment and donations and so all share applications have been accepted. Thank you to all investors new and old and we will issue share certificates early next year. We have received the award from the Scottish Land Fund and the money to buy the building is with our solicitors. Watch this space!

Storehouse Community Questionnaire
If you have a couple of minutes can you help us by filling in a short questionnaire about The Storehouse and what matters most to you when you are choosing where to shop. We welcome all responses whether you shop with us or not.
We are looking for more volunteers to help with all aspects of the Storehouse project. Find out more here.
