Itteringham's shop is being staffed regularly by a team of 25 villagers who work for free in order to keep it open.
There has been a shop on the site for over 350 years but it had faced tough competition from supermarkets and began to struggle - which is when the villagers stepped in.
They have now produced a book documenting the history of their shop by collecting photographs, newspaper cuttings and memories from villagers.
The shop was leased by the Fairhead family from 1908 until 1994 when Brian Fairhead died. It was only saved from closure because the villagers raised nearly £5,000 to keep it open. Shortly afterwards they formed the Itteringham Community Shop association.
With the villagers working for free the shop can save around £350 a week in wages, meaning the store can break-even.
It has also led to the creation of pop-up restaurants and cinemas in the village - with some of the profits going back into maintaining the shop.
