What's a Bulk Shop?

First thing’s first, The Bulk Shop by Margella is a place where shoppers can buy certain foods by the weight rather than in individual packages. And you can choose how much you buy of each item. 

Why Refill?

It's simple, buying in bulk reduces waste.  It also inhibits the harmful effects of packaging manufacture and the consumption of single-use plastics.   New biodegradable options are becoming available so that makes our choices potent as well.

How do I start?

So lets go shopping at The Bulk Shop....  Bring your own glass jars/bottles,  mason jars, silicon stockers/boxes/bags,  any sealable & sustainable (reusable) containers.  Paper bags and a limited quantity of jars are also available in-store.

Step 1:     When you arrive first weigh your empty containers  (or ask one of our friendly staff to help you!).                                        Write this weight on each container before filling it up.  Fill as much or as little as you like

        (NB: no need to weigh our in-store paper bags).

Step 2:     Write the product code/number for the food you fill up on.   You'll see this code on top of each bulk container.

            For example:   #A32 

 

Step 3:     At the register staff will weigh the filled container.  Staff will subtract the container weight from the final weight.            This will give you the weight of the food you purchased and will tell us the price.

Step 4:     Payments can be made by Cash or PayMe.   We will send you a reciept by text or by email - more waste reduction!

New to this? 

                Bring your own reusable cotton or tote bags. 

                Invest a little in reusable produce bags.  You'll quickly regain what you spent, the environment will gain even more.

                Save your glass jars (mayonaise, pickle etc),  or tea tins... and bring them along each time.   

                Upcycle old T-shirts into carry bags.   

                Wrap dried fruit or nuts in Beeswax wraps/ greaseproof paper/ Japanese furoshiki and close with rubber band.

          ..... to name but a few... share your tips with us!   We'd love to hear from you.

 
I have some empty jars/ recycle bags...can I leave them at The Bulk Shop?
      Yes please do!   Just make sure that all jars/ bottles have sealable lids and are properly cleaned with no labels and free        of adhesive residue so that they are ready for the next person to use.
      (See this link here...  https://youtu.be/y5-rMsa13kU   ...for a helpful tip on how to remove labels from glass )
 
Carry-bags?  
  We have a * borrow-a-bag corner too, so if you forget just grab a cotton tote bag and bring it back the next time you visit.

何為散買店 (Bulk Shop)?

首先,在Margella 的散買店,顧客可購買以重量計價而非按獨立包裝計的某些食品,亦可選擇按每樣貨品買多少錢來計。

為何要添裝?

很簡單,散買減少浪費,亦能防止包裝產消費一次性塑膠消費帶來的危害。新型可分解的包裝已有不少,讓我們的選擇更容易。

如何開始?

從Bulk Shop購物開始......帶上你的玻璃罐/樽,有蓋玻璃瓶,矽膠容器/盒/袋,任何可封口及可持續(重複)使用的容器。本店亦有紙袋及少量完好玻璃樽提供。

第一步:入來鋪頭先秤一秤帶來的空樽有多重(或是叫職員幫手秤)。在每個容器上標注重量後再添裝貨品,想裝多少都可以。(店內紙袋無需秤重)。

第二步:寫下你添裝的食品編碼/編號,每個食品大罐頂均有標注相關編號

例如:#A32

第三步:收銀處職員將裝好的容器秤重,然後減去容器重量,得出你購買的食物重量及價錢。

第四步:可用現金或PayMe付款。我們會通過訊息或電郵發出收據 - 進一步減少廢物!

環保新手?

帶上你可重複使用的布袋或手提袋。

花少少錢買環保買餸袋,很快回本之餘,讓環境更為受益

不要丟棄用過的玻璃樽(蛋黃醬罐、泡菜瓶等),或是茶葉錫罐......每次都帶上它們來。

舊T恤升級重用製成手提袋

用蜜蠟布/油紙/日式便當巾包乾果,再用橡筋綁好

.....舉例只為拋磚引玉......期待大家與我們分享你的獨家貼士!

我有一些空樽/可重用袋......可以留在Bulk Shop嗎?

無任歡迎!不過請留意所有樽/瓶均需有蓋並妥善清洗,無標籤亦無殘留粘合劑,讓下一手主人可即時使用。

手提袋?

本店亦有一個*借用袋專區,如你忘記帶上自己的購物袋,可取走一個手提布袋,下次購物歸還即可。
