Who we are
We believe in...
Max and Cloé here. We are the co founders of Sans Store.
We have lived in Lewisham since 2012 and we know that it is the best place to live in London. We always knew our little spot on Brockley Rise was in need of a shop selling the finest produce so that the local community (and us) would be able to treat themselves!
What's with the name? 'Sans' is the French word for 'without'. At Sans Store we believe that we all could go without a few things; waste, single use plastic packaging, additives, poor quality produce etc. So Sans seems to sum us up well. It also helps that one of our co founders (Cloé) is a French national!
We are very proud of our ever expanding refill range, which is helping the community to go without plastic packaging and other everyday items.
Keeping it local
At Sans Store, we believe in keeping things as local as possible. Most of our produce is sourced from London and the UK but we do source some our other fine produce from our lovely neighbours in Europe.
Sourcing the best, no exceptions
Our produce is sourced from the finest and most reputable suppliers. We ensure that every one of them is selling the best quality in their particular product category. We also make sure they are doing business in a socially and ethically responsible way.
Tackling food hunger
The number of people facing food insecurity in Britain has quadrupled in recent years. We feel strongly about helping the most vulnerable in our borough and have partnered with Lewisham Foodbank so that our food surplus never goes to waste. We also have a donation basket in the shop if you'd like to help.
