The Jars

At R.A. & J.S. Fletcher and Sons, one of the more key features to the shop is the array of over 200 jars we have on display in the shop selling a wide sellection of products from Dried Fruit, Nuts & Seeds, Pulses & Grains, Cereals, Confectionary and Herbs & Spices.

All the products in the jars are sold loose to the customers requirements which over the years this way of selling the products has become increasingly more popular as customers can buy just exactly what they need compared to having to buy a packet. In many cases this not only can work out to be better value and quality but also works out a more economical way to buy along with being ecological by using less packaging. The jars are an attraction that have brought people from far and wide to see because apart from them being something you very rarely see these days, but also because many of the products sold are not easy to obtain from many other places.

We also do the ECOVER Refill System

Caring for the environment is something we are all encouraged to do more of nowadays which is why here at R.A. & J.S. Fletcher and Sons we like to make sure we do our bit. As well as recycling or re-using 100% of our cardboard waste we hope to make it easier for our customers to be environmentally friendly by selling our produce with as least packaging as possible to save the need for it going into landfill. We also sell a wide range of environmentally friendly products like ECOVER cleaning products to which many can be purchased in the “Refill System” at a reduced price compared to buying the same product in a new carton. It works very easily and is the best way to recycle your empty plastic Ecover bottles.

How the Ecover Refill System works

By bringing your empty Ecover bottle/s to the shop (see the list below) we will refill them with the identical product as they had in originally for you to purchase at a reduced rate compared to buying a new carton for your replacement. This not only saves you money but saves the plastic going into landfill making it the most economical way of recycling compared to sending the plastic bottle to be recycled into another use.

In the Refill System we can refill the following:
  • Lemon & Aloe Vera Washing Up Liquid
  • Chamomile & Marigold Washing Up Liquid
  • Fabric Softener (Amongst the Flowers)
  • Non Bio Laundry Liquid
  • Delicates Laundry Liquid for fine fabrics & wools
  • All Purpose Cleaner
  • Floor Soap
  • Liquid Hand Soap (Lavender & Aloe Vera)
