A HEREFORD shop has closed just seven months after first opening its doors.

The Tuckshop, located in a unit next to Fox and Mabel at the Old Market, has permanently shut its doors.

The outlet, which opened in April this year, was a one-of-a-kind operation serving up local produce and hot drinks from vending machines at all hours of the day. The original intention was for the products to be changed seasonally, therefore showcasing different producers from the county.

A sign on the shop's door said the Tuckshop would be closing its doors, but that many of the items sold in the shop would still be available for sale at the Whole Moo World milk shed.


The Tuckshop’s interior is now in the process of being emptied, with only a few vending machines left standing and little else remaining.

The shop was founded by Sam and Jacob James, the Bodenham brothers behind Whole Moo World.

The pair currently have six fresh milk and milkshake vending machines scattered around Herefordshire and its borders, which have garnered acclaim from organisations such as the Great Taste Awards.

Many of the items which were served at the Tuckshop will continue to be stocked at the Whole Moo World vending machine in the Old Market.
