OWNERS of an independent sports shop in Skipton have paid tribute to their loyal customers as they commit to at least another five successful years in the town.

As they this week celebrate the first five years of their business, Discount Sports Skipton in Rope Walk, joint owners, husband and wife, Tony and Ruth Eidsforth, have signed a lease for the premises for another five years.

And, Tony and Ruth say they and their team look forward to the next five years of selling branded discount sportswear for adults and children.

Ruth said: "We are incredibly grateful to our loyal and lovely customers and our amazing team. Celebrating our fifth year at our shop on Rope Walk, fills us with immense joy. Signing another five-year lease underscores our commitment to serving the people of Skipton and the surrounding area."

Ruth and Tony say they have been proud to make the shop a 'beacon of community spirit, fostering strong relationships with customers and actively participating in local events and initiatives'.

Through their dedication to customer satisfaction and community engagement, Tony and Ruth believe they have created a welcoming environment that goes beyond just retail.

And now, as it enters its next chapter, the team will remain steadfast in its mission to provide 'unparalleled service, exceptional value, and a wide selection of branded sportswear for all ages and activities.'
