It is with a heavy heart that we have had to close Eve & Ranshaw after 240 years. 

We are immensely proud of our shop and its heritage. In recent years we have faced some challenging times with changes in customer shopping habits, lockdown closures, rising business costs and the current cost of living crisis. Regrettably, it reached a point where the department store was no longer viable.

Our heartfelt thanks go to our dedicated shop team, some of whom have served the business for decades. We thank them for their commitment, loyalty and excellent customer service over the years. We would also like to thank our wonderful suppliers who helped us provide the best products and services to our customers.

Most of all we would like to thank all our customers for your business over the years. Eve & Ranshaw could not have been as successful as it was without your support and loyalty. Thank you for being with our shop in all its ups and downs.

The shop in Louth, Lincolnshire, will close on Saturday 4th February 2023.
