Co-op Communities

We are delighted to say that Merchants’ Place has been chosen for the next round of the Co-op Community Fund. This means that if you are a co-op member, you can select us as your local cause. Once we are selected, every time you shop at the store a small part of your shopping total will be donated to us.
Please choose us! If you are not a member, you can apply by following this link… https://www.coop.co.uk/membership

Thank you to Co-op for this amazing opportunity! And thank you to all that choose to support us.

Children’s Toy Bank

Could you donate to our Toy Bank? We are looking for children’s toys to give to families who need a helping hand this Christmas. If you have toys that are complete and are in good condition (preferably new or unwanted gifts) please drop them into us! THANK YOU.
All donations will be given to local families this Christmas.
PLEASE NOTE: We cannot accept soft toys – all toys must be easy to sanitise.

New Community Larder

We are pleased to announce the launch of our Community Larder. Supported by Simon Clipsom, Morrisons Community Champion and Cromer Foodbank, our larder offers long life food for those who may need a helping hand. We also want to encourage food recycling in Cromer and welcome food ‘swaps’, if you have tinned or dried food which has a long life and is unopened/undamaged bring it along and swap! We are hoping to add a community fridge in the near future, however to acheive this we will need funding and willing volunteers to help us. If you would like to help with this new project, either as a helping hand or to give a donation we would love to hear from you!
