Welcome to Provender Brown
Coronavirus Update Notice
Update to Opening Hours From Week Commencing Monday 30th March
New Hours: Tuesday to Friday 9am to 5pm / Saturday 9am - 4pm
Note, we will be closed on both Sunday and Monday.
Whilst the lockdown guidelines are very clear for most businesses, we continue to face a moral dilemma around whether or not we should be open. As a food retailer we are permitted to be open under 'essential businesses' guidelines.
"Food and other necessary goods. Those involved in food production, processing, distribution, sale and delivery as well as those essential to the provision of other key goods."
My dilemma has been this: Our staff and customers are our first priority and arguably, we are not an 'essentials' retailer. We are a small, family run business. However, we can offer a good range of fresh food and groceries that I know our customers will need to access and we currently have a decent supply of things like pasta, sauces and other store-cupboard goods.
For this reason, I do feel as though we can offer a much-needed service at this time. Having spoken to the team we have all decided that with very strict guidelines in place we should try to stay open as long as possible. Therefore, for the time being - unless something changes - we are committed to staying open with a request that all customers follow the strict government guidelines and our additional measures to keep staff and safe as laid out below.
☑️Please use the hand sanitiser just inside the door as you enter
☑️Stay at least two meters from our staff and other customers
☑️Pay by card and preferably using contactless. Note that payments using Apple or Android Pay are not restricted to £30 in the same way as contactless card payments.
☑️Please respect any requests from the team that involve limiting the number of people inside the shop at any one time - we are still experiencing busy periods.
☑️If you need to wait outside, please maintain a distance of 2m between yourself and other customers.
While we can, we are offering the following services:
Ordering & Collection
Of course, all of this is of no use unless you can access us and as such we'd like to offer the following services at this time.
- Free delivery within Perth. We will do our very best to deliver to you is you are in the vulnerable, essential self-isolating group. Please let us know this on ordering.
- Courier service. We will continue to post non-chilled goods out to you via Royal Mail or DPD for as long as they continue to run. We're currently checking our chilled goods postage service.
- 'At The Door' pick up service. If you can drive down, we'll gladly bring your order to the door or your car, and leave it at a safe distance for you to pick up. For those you can, please choose this option to free us up to deliver to our more vulnerable customers.

Provender Brown Delicatessen is one of Perth’s favourite independent food and drink retailers, offering up a fantastic range of delicious deli items for the past 15 years.
Known affectionately as PB by an army of foodie regulars, our reputation as the go-to store for sourcing quality, gourmet food and local, seasonal ingredients is certainly well-deserved. Our gorgeous shop in George Street boasts a fantastically wide range of Perthshire, Scottish, British and international artisan suppliers as well as offering mouth-watering foodie gifts and fresh, takeaway lunches and meals prepared on the premises.
Provenance is at the heart of what we do and our fresh, chilled foods and store cupboard essentials are often sourced directly from our neighbouring farmers and artisan producers, bringing you a truly authentic flavour of Scotland. And because we know that you like variety and quality in all of your foodie choices, we also draw from the harvests and expertise of mainland Europe to bring you some wonderful ingredients, exclusive to us in Perth.
The entire PB team are passionate about what we do and we take it upon ourselves daily to taste-test and sample in order to give you the very best service and advice – it’s a tough job but someone has to do it!
