Welcome to The Bishy Weigh!

Pop in and see us at our store on the corner of beautiful Bishopthorpe Road high street. Inside, you will find hundreds of ingredients, household goods, toiletries and gifts to choose from, all without plastic packaging.

Most of our products are sold by weight, allowing you to buy just as much or as little as you need. You are very welcome to bring your own containers from home to refill, buy new containers in-store, or use our recycled paper bags.

Alice and her friendly team are here to help you discover easy and achievable ways to live a little bit greener.

How It Works

Our weigh-and-pay system is user-friendly, and The Bishy Weigh team are always happy to help and show you how it works.

Weigh your empty container with its lid and print a Container Sticker. These will survive a few washes so make sure to stick them securely to your container so you don’t need to weigh it empty each time you visit.

Fill your container with as much or as little as you like of your chosen product.

Scan the Container Sticker and weigh your filled container. Select the product from the menu and print a Product Sticker.

Take your container to the till to be scanned, and to pay.

You can now visit our online store to browse our range, and find out about our 'Click and Collect' and Emissions-Free Delivery options!


How is coronavirus affecting how we do things at The Bishy Weigh?

Hello folks, Alice here!

I hope you’re all keeping safe and well and staying at home as much as you can.

As a food shop selling essential groceries, hygiene products and household goods we are remaining open.

We are open Monday to Saturday 9:00am-5:30pm. However, for the time being we will be closed on Sundays.

I have put measures in place to implement social distancing and extra-stringent hygiene in the shop.

  • To enable at least 2m space between people in the store, we are allowing a maximum of 4 people in at a time. For maximum efficiency and minimum waiting times, we ask that this is 1 person per household where possible please.
  • Hand sanitiser is provided for use by all customers entering the shop. Or please do use your own if you prefer.
  • In addition to our regular high standard of regular cleaning, we are disinfecting all surfaces and handles regularly throughout the day.
  • We are currently taking card payments only please.

As this is new territory for us, if we need to evolve the system, we will post updates on this page and our social media channels. So do follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @TheBishyWeigh.

Thank you for your continued kindness, patience and support.

Best wishes,
Alice
