To all of our lovely customers
After over 7 years of Brimfields, it is with a heavy heart that we will officially cease trading as of 31st October - with Friday 27th being our last veg box day.
Due to the competition of supermarkets and the rising wholesale price of fruit and veg, it has becoming increasingly difficult to grow our business and to offer good quality, local fruit and veg at a competitive price, and to run a profitable business. As I'm sure you're aware, small businesses are becoming harder to run these days as the big boys drive out the independents ... and the loss of some great independent shops and businesses in Winchester of late have really highlighted that.
It's not a decision we have taken lightly, as Brimfields has been such a huge part of our lives for a good while now - and we have loved getting to know you all and seeing you on a regular basis.
But, we're looking ahead to pastures new and will be sure to keep you posted on what we do next... with a few plans already in the pipeline.
It's been a great 7 years and your constant support, encouragement and custom has been so greatly appreciated. But, as they say, all good things must come to an end. And we look forward to the next chapter for the Brimfield's.
We thank you for your understanding and hope to see you soon.
Ross (and Ciara) - The Brimfields
