Welcome to Boxall's SPAR Pelynt


This year we are celebrating our 50th anniversary as F P & M Boxall!

Our family business originally started in 1929, when Sam Harvey and his daughter Violet took over the running of a small Post Office near the current store. In 1967, Violet’s daughter Molly and her husband Fernley built a shop next door to the Post Office and set up a small village convenience store. In recognition to my parents and their hard work over the past 50 years, we will be celebrating Molly and Fernley’s achievements in October with a party and grand raffle which will be raising money for pancreatic cancer UK.

Currently we are on our 5th generation of family working in the store with my own kids helping on the weekends. A family run business, you can still find Molly occasionally stacking the shelves and David the third of four brothers makes daily deliveries of milk and papers too. 
Sophie & I took over the full running of the store 4 years ago when Fernley was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. We started together 15 years ago to modernise the shop, expanding the range and updating the equipment. In 2009 we won the prestigious Robert Wisemans UK Retailer of the Year Award, which was amazing and a credit to all that where involved with the business.

We hope that you will all join us to mark what we believe to be a special and unique village land mark.

Thanks for your years of support!

All the Boxall Family.
