There are two local “corner” shops, both in Preston on the main road. The Spar, Preston, (Clements', although it is still often referred to as "Bailey's" after a previous owner) is close to the junction between the Preston Road and Seven Acres Road; as well as the normal range of Spar groceries, it sells a variety of local and home-sourced produce, including meat and bakeries. The Spar is also the local Post Office.

The Cooperative Store is just down the road from the Spice Ship pub, and sells a good range of Co-op products. Both these shops are open early in the morning to late at night, although at slightly different times.


The main supermarkets in the area are, in Weymouth, Asda and Morrisons, and in Dorchester, Tesco and Waitrose. There is a larger Co-op and several other shops in Littlemoor. See the company websites for opening times but both Asda and Tesco are 24 hour stores for 6 days a week.

For Local hair and beauty treatments why not try Chic located on the main road next to the Spar, 01305 834800.
