Appin Community Co-op was set up in 1983 with funds from the sale of local shares and a grant from Highlands & Islands Development Board (now HIE). By 2001 the shop had built up a reserve fund which it used together with some grant funding to build a new shop. The shop sells a wide range of goods and employs 4 staff.

It also provides a delivery service twice per week for elderly residents and has set up a separate Community Trust Fund into which it donates a proportion of its annual profit for use in local projects such as the playing fields, shinty strips, out of school activities etc.
