We source our products from all over the UK from a variety of different suppliers, ensuring a varied range, as well as the most competitive prices for nothing but the best in pet food, particularly for household and working dogs.

General Merchants

William Shearer has been in business since 1857 as general merchants, selling agricultural seeds, groceries, household goods and garden and pet supplies.

Our well stocked grocery department offers a range of specialist gourmet foods and beverages suitable for all dietary requirements. We stock fresh bread, local produce, international cuisine ingredients, a large selection of teas, spices and herbs from all over the world and a great choice for those who are looking for organic and/or gluten-free products.

Christmas Shop

Each year we turn the upstairs of the shop into a dedicated Christmas shopping experience, selling luxury food, beverages and gifts such as hampers, confectionaries and collections of preserves. Please visit us in the months of November and December for a truly festive experience.
