You can join the Loyalty Scheme and our Wild Bird Club at the till point in store and once you receive your card, you will be able to collect points in all areas of the shop apart from the restaurants. You can then use these points to save money and spend in the store. If you have any queries on joining or collecting points, please email loyalty@twentypence.co.uk

Q. Do you offer online shopping if I cannot make it into the store?

Yes, we offer a range of products including our Star Buys online. Please visit www.twentypence.co.uk to order online for local delivery or we can arrange ‘Click and Collect’ from our goods collection area.

Q. A product is avaliable on the website, but isn't in store. Why is that?

Both our website and in-store shop run as two different entities. Unfortunatley our website isn't currently running on a live stock basis, and so some products may say they are avaliable but in actuallity they aren't at the current time of ordering. In this case we will offer refunds for those products or we will contact you if there are any suitable subsitiutes for the product.

In some instances products may be cheaper on the website than in-store. This is intentional. As previously mentioned both areas are completley seperate from each other. Customers are more than welcome to order through our website for click and collect to get the best deal! Subject to a 48hr contact/picking window. 

If you would like to know stock levels before ordering, contact us by phoning 01353 741024 or by emailing the web shop email: website@twentypence.co.uk
