Single Step Wholefoods Co-Operative
78a Penny Street, Lancaster LA1 4XN
Tel.: 01524 63021

Founded in 1976, Single Step is a non-profit-making workers' co-operative. All workers are equally responsible for running the shop and all receive the same pay. All the decisions are made by consensus. Single Step tries to follow ethical and environmental principles in the way it runs:

  • All products are vegetarian and most are vegan
  • None of the products are tested on animals
  • We try to keep our prices as low as possible
  • We stock many fairtrade products
  • We sell environmentally friendly products
  • We recycle and re-use as much as possible
  • We provide a 10% discount for senior citizens
  • We sell a wide range of organic products and try to keep our shop GM-free
  • Healthy eating is important to us. We focus on wholefoods and avoid unnecessary additives
  • We buy local produce and purchase many products in bulk, reducing costs and packaging
  • None of our fresh fruit or veg is air freighted
  • We sell tampons & sanitary towels at cost price and condoms at a discounted rate

Upstairs is the Whale Tail Vegetarian Cafe, and below is the Basement - the Lancaster Resource Centre.

The shop is open from 9.30 to 5.30 Monday to Saturday.
