New country store for Jameson’s site

Masham company W E Jameson is to create two new jobs when it expands its country store in the town.

The shops’ workforce will rise from 34 to 36 when the company opens an expanded country store at its site on Foxholme Lane in September.

The family-owned animal feed merchant is also planning a new farm trade office at its Masham-based mill headquarters . The business already sells a variety of pet food, DIY and gardening products, in addition to farm supplies, and the new store will carry a wider range of goods including clothing, gifts and equestrian equipment, director Graham Jameson said.
