It is with a very heavy heart that I have made the decision to close down Greys Cheese Direct. Trading will cease on 31st January 2017.
My business in 2016 has been severely affected by the increasing activity of major retailers in the online cheese sector. These retailers are able to make major investments into web technology and advertising which simply cannot be matched by small independent businesses, such as mine.
I have tried to compete by offering a wide range of high quality cheeses, along with outstanding customer service, and I would like to thank all of our customers who have searched for and found my web site. Over the last 12 months the cost of our web visibility and security has risen month on month, and such costs are simply not affordable into the future. I have therefore made the decision to close whilst I am still able to pay my loyal suppliers, who have supported the business over the years.
I would like to say a very big "Thank you" to all of my wonderful customers, and to say how sorry I am that our relationship is coming to an end.
I still have some great cheeses in stock, which I shall be selling with a 50% discount. So if you would like some fabulous cheese during January, please place a "Leave it to Lizzy" order, to a value of your choice, and I will make sure that your last delivery from Greys will be a delight to receive.
Lizzy and the team.
Exceptional cheeses - Outstanding service
The Grey family is incredibly passionate when it comes to cheese. We have been providing "Exceptional Cheeses and Outstanding Service" for over ten years.
Over these past years we have forged many great relationships, not only with our wonderful customers, but with cheese makers and suppliers from the UK and abroad. We are passionate about supporting small farms, traditional methods and high animal welfare. Many of our cheeses are produced on family farms using milk from their own herds and flocks. Happy animals definitely make better cheese.
If you are looking for the best artisan cheese from both the UK and Europe, for yourself or as a truly unique gift, you have definitely come to the right place.
