Eid Community Co-operative

Aith, Bixter, Shetland, ZE2 9NB

Telephone: 01595 810 600

Following the closure of the only shop in the area in 2002, the community voted to take on and run the shop itself. The shop was set up as a co-operative and residents were invited to buy shares at £50 each – from a population of 200 there are 147 shareholders and over £10,000 was raised. The shop has become a successful business, run by a manager, 4 part-time staff and 4 after-school helpers.
