About the shop

Tullivers was founded by Helen Spath and David Weston in 1983. When they retired in 2016, they passed on the reins to assistant manager Alan Malcolm, who had been working at the shop for 15 years, and his wife, Tracey, herself a Tullivers veteran. The shop is now owned by Alan and Tracey, along with Alan’s sister and brother in law, making it a true family business.

Tullivers started out selling herbs and wholefoods. We still keep many of those original products, but over the years have added many new specialised lines too.

We stock a wide range of supplements, whole foods, free-from products and organic bodycare with extensive selections from the likes of Solgar, Weleda, Suma and Bioforce/A. Vogel.

We pack our own dried fruit and nuts, so we can choose the best. Local suppliers make our bread (organic flour), tofu, honey and free range eggs. We offer organically grown and fair trade options on many products.

Tullivers stocks over 200 different herbs and spices. You can buy as little as 25g or as much as you want. Alongside these we have herbal teabags, and green, Ayurvedic and fruit teas.

Whatever your special requirements, food sensitivities or allergies, you should be able to find what you need.

Tullivers stocks those things that you can never seem to find, as well as everything you would expect. If we don’t have what you want in stock please take advantage of our special ordering services. If we can find it, you will get it.



Whatever your special requirements, food sensitivities or allergies, Tullivers should be able to find what you need. We can offer nutritional advice to ensure you will not be lacking any nutrients.

The Tullivers team regularly advises on digestive disorders, stress, joint problems, menopausal symptoms/female hormone balance, pregnancy, sleep problems and products for children and babies.

We have regular advisors in-store too. Find out more on our Events page.

Keep it local

Wherever possible we use services and supplies from our region. Our business supports over 40 other local businesses. This saves on business miles, and boosts the wider local economy.

It’s not just the local suppliers, or the recycling that we do. All our energy is from a green supplier and all our staff use buses or bikes to get to work.
