Dear Reader,

Rifleoak is now closed. As we have a lovely little network of local customers and friends, please continue to follow us on our Facebook & Instagram pages for updates, bargains, local news, customer sales & wants etc.

Why did we close? Rifleoak on paper was doing very well but in real life it was stopping us from having the quality of life we want. We want to spend more time with our son, more time on the farm and on our other ventures; which have all suffered while the shop is running as it's so time hungry. There was also one other factor that was the 'straw that broke the camel's back' as they say...however, we'll save that little nugget for discussion another day ;) #watchthisspace 

In short, it was simply the right business at the wrong time.

Finally, with the uncertainty in the industry that Covid has created it seems a natural time to politely tip our cap and step back from retail until the 'storm' blows over. 

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has been a part of this journey over the past two years and to say that with all the friends we've made and laughs we've had, we've no regrets at all! 

Lots of love and we wish you all the best during these strange times, 

Richard, Dawn & James xxx
