Keelham Food Hall closes due to 'financial situations'

Skipton's Keelham Food Hall has closed its doors, with shoppers told there is hope a new buyer will take on the shop and restaurants.

Reports surfaced via Facebook on Thursday morning (28th December) that staff had been told Keelham would be closing at the end of the day, but by early afternoon the doors had been shut to customers and a social media post confirmed that the shop was 'temporarily closed until further notice'.

The statement said: "Unfortunately due to financial situations the decision has been taken at least for the moment to close Keelham Food Hall, Keelham Kitchen, Kind at Keelham and Knead Pizzeria. 

"There is hope that a new buyer will step up and continue the shop and re employ a great deal of the staff but these things don't happen overnight unfortunately so please bear with us. I'm sure further details will be released as they become available."

The social media post continued: "On a personal note as an employee of Keelham and a local.... it is a shop and brand I would like to see continue as I'm sure many of you feel the same, its been with us for many years now and albeit changed management / ownership a couple of times its a place that offered produce and products not found in other shops in the area. I've enjoyed working there and working alongside the other staff members."

Keelham Farm Shop opened in June 2015 as part of a £4m redevelopment of the former Nicholas Smiths garage site on Gargrave Road and was then sold by its original owners in 2020.
