Our Story

In 2006 we traded in our demanding jobs in the commercial food world for a better lifestyle and took over the running of the Dale Stores in Birstwith. Our vision was to fill the shop with great quality, locally sourced products and give the community a shop that would make a real difference to lives of producers, distributors and customers.

We remain intent on providing the kind of exceptional service and range of products that we would like to experience ourselves. Nothing excites us more than finding new products to put into our shop. Our range continues to develop as we strive to be the best we can. We work hard for our community and they, in turn, give us tremendous support. We firmly believe that the more support we are given, the better we can make the shop. It’s a cycle that works!

We have been here for sixteen years and are determined that we are merely custodians of the store  and are keen to ensure the security of the business for future generations of the community.
