While on a recent visit to Somerset, I came across this great independent retailer. The Langport Stores offers the most interesting and varied foods and products that you might struggle to find elsewhere. They specialise in Health Foods, Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Specialist Foods as well as Body & Beauty products. It is a lovely vintage shop with the fixtures dating back to the 1890’s when the shop first opened by H.C.Norton. The current owners have adapted the shop to the modern needs of customers and by using local suppliers this in turns supports the local economy. Sadly we hear so much about ‘death of the High Street’ with retailers closing but this is certainly not the case for The Langport Stores. With so much competition between the various supermarkets, it is refreshing to find a successful independent retailer. Its well worth a visit to Langport.
