Open for business

We are doing all we can to ensure your visit to us is as safe as possible.

In line with government guidelines, we will have social distancing measures in place and we ask that you follow any signage and staff advice.

We will be allowing a maximum of four customers into the shop at any one time and ask that you queue to the right until we are able to let you in – we have posters in the window every 2m to help you queue safely.

We have rigorously stepped up our cleaning routine within the store and are asking that you use hand sanitiser upon entering – we will happily serve you from the door if you do not wish to use any – and ask that you keep the touching of products in store to a minimum.

Obviously, as the situation changes from day to day, we will have to adapt the way we conduct business too so please bear that in mind when you visit us. This is an entirely new way of working for us too, so please be patient.

If you live locally but are unable to come into the shop, we have teamed up with the lovely folk at York Collective, a not-for-profit, worker-owned, bicycle courier cooperative, who will be helping us get deliveries to you within the outer York ring road. We will make a separate post about how this will work. We can still post via Royal Mail, but please allow up to 48 hours’ processing time.

We will also be offering an email & collect service. Please see our website for the online enquiry form – this will be the easiest way for us to process your order. Please queue to the left for collections.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

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.
