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 is coronavirus affecting how we’re running 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 remining open so we can make these necessary products available to customers.

Our opening hours from Monday to Saturday are 9:00am-5:30pm as usual. 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.

We can now take orders for dry goods over the phone on 01904 631410 between 10:00am and 12:00 noon. A member of staff will put your order together for you to collect between 1:00pm and 5:00pm the same day.

With the help and hard work of some fabulous local volunteers, we are now also able to offer a delivery service to those who need it.

This is NOT a convenience service for all. It is purely to get essential dry goods delivered to those who are in isolation, and who cannot arrange for a family member, friend or neighbour to collect pre-ordered groceries on their behalf.

This service can only work with volunteers available to deliver groceries, so please do let us know if you are able to help and we will put you in touch with the volunteer coordinator.

If you would like to arrange a local delivery, speak to a member of The Bishy Weigh team on 01904 631410 between 10:00 am - 12:00 noon on Monday, Wednesday or Friday, to order for delivery the next day.

Once we have assembled your goods for you, we will phone you back to take a card payment before your items are delivered.

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. All updates when high-demand products are back in stock will be publicised on our social media channels too.

Thank you for your kindness, patience and support.

Best wishes,

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.
