Lyttleton Stores Co-operative
The Lyttleton Stores Co-operative is an attractive heritage-listed building (originally built in 1884) within a heritage precinct in the mid-Blue Mountains. It consists of two country-style shops that focus on personal service. Pantree Produce caters for the health conscious 'foodie', and Atelier caters for those seeking original hand-made Australian gifts and wares. The third shop is a workshop space called Preserve with a kitchen and garden.
Pantree is an organic grocery with fresh fruit and vegetables sourced locally and sustainably. It sells grocery items, including home and body products, for discerning customers who value ethical, small-scale production.
Atelier sources many wares locally, with approximately 90 per cent of makers living in the Blue Mountains! It has a window gallery exhibition of different artists, generally changing each month.
Although Lyttleton Stores Co-operative started as a family partnership in 2015, the intention was to become a co-operative as their community grew.
They believe that a sustainable future involves a secure food system, creativity and adaptability, health and well being, and a thriving localised economy.
It is a two-minute walk from Lawson station on the north side of town, and parking is also available.
