As you may know, we are retiring soon.
The lease on our shop is coming to an end and we've decided to call it a day.

We've been running Up Country for longer than we care to remember, and we're now ready to leave retailing behind, take a well-earned rest and move on.

We will be closing the shop at the end of April or shortly thereafter. The business is up for sale, and anyone interested in taking the Up Country brand forward with fresh energy is welcome to contact us.

The new owners of the building will be looking for new tenants, so there's an opportunity to take on a long-established business in the same premises, where customers know where to find the range of clothing, shoes and accessories they've come to love.

You may also know that we stopped stocking Rowan yarns last year. There may be an opportunity for a knitting enthusiast to re-establish the Rowan connection, the Rowan Up Country and 'Rowan in Holmfirth' brands, and build a new high street knitting business, together with the online yarn trade under our long-established domain names which will also be available.

We'll be reducing prices on almost everything from now onward, so this is your last chance to snap up bargains and stock your wardrobe while you can, before your sizes sell out!

We'd like to thank all our lovely customers past and present. It has been a joy to keep you knitting, beautifully clothed and well-shod for so many years. If you're one of our regulars, do drop in for a chat and a cheerio - we'd like to thank you face to face for your support.

Hope to see you soon!

Elaine and Greg
