Oeno focuses on Circencester wine shop as Stroud closes
Published:  14 February, 2011

Gloucestershire independent Oeno has closed its original store in Stroud to concentrate on its branch in Cirencester.

Owner Nick Burton said the Stroud shop, which opened in 2008, had become uneconomical due to rising rent and rates. The closure created one redundancy.

Burton said the decision to close the store was “heartbreaking” but added: “It’s only 12 miles away so a lot of the Stroud customers are shopping in Circencester and we’re delivering free to Stroud.

“There’s still a plan to look for new shops in other areas.”

Oeno’s wholesaling business is already based at Cirencester.
