Sorry, the Shop and Ranges are Currently Closed.
Following a kitchen fire which occurred on the morning of Thursday 5th July at The Ranges, Devizes, we are asking customers to please avoid the site until further notice.
The fire, contained within the Kitchen facilities, has affected our services, telephony, electricity and water, which means we are unable to trade at our usual level.
Home to Wiltshire Shooting Centre and Wiltshire Ballistic Services, the fire is reported to have started at 08:30 and was attended by fire crews from four stations, who used breathing apparatus and hose reels to tackle the fire. Thankfully no one was hurt, and structural damage contained to just the kitchen area.
We are asking for everyone to bear with us over the next couple of weeks as we clean up and rebuild. We want to reassure our customers that products in storage, repair or in for service have not been affected.
We are thankful to everyone for providing us with good wishes and kind thoughts and would like to give our special thanks to the fire crews who attended the scene.
