The new store will have a wider range of products than we can currently stock (due to the size of the store), including key brands in our clothing & footwear, equestrian, pet & bird, household, tools and gardening ranges as well as our core commitment to delivering value-for-money farm & smallholder products.

Our Town & Countrywear shop on Crediton high street will continue to sell a wide range of clothing, footwear and school uniforms.
