The popular Mace village shop and post office has been run by Mr Nirav & Mrs Nipa Modhvadiya since November 2015. Mace stocks fresh local produce such as flour from Whissendine Windmill; village eggs from Loodal Farms; Rutland preserves, jams and chutneys; bread from King Street Bakery in Melton Mowbray and Hambleton Bakery, as well as bacon, sausages and pork pies from Grasmere Farm butchers. The store sells tickets to local events, houses an ATM, takes in dry cleaning and stocks the widest selection of naan bread of any village shop in Rutland, if not the UK. For three years in a row, the store has been the recipient of an Independent Achievers Academy Award (2012, 2013, 2014).
