“An emporium of the beautiful and unusual for everyone.”

The shop nestles in the Market Place of the lovely market town of Malton along with many other wonderful independent retailers.

Kemps General Store was founded in 2017 by Liz Kemp, a shopkeepers daughter and passionate advocate of the delights of her now-home town, Malton.

Liz Kemp grew up in the tiny village of Bramham, just over the way in West Yorkshire. Her mother and father ran a small shop in the village centre, on the street of what was then the A1.

Growing up in such an environment made it's mark on Liz, who saw firsthand the care and attention her parents put into running the successful business.

Real customer service existed then, even if it had no name. There was a profound recognition you were relied upon as a business – customers needed to know that you would be open when you said you were.

The focus was always on being able to help meet your customer’s needs, whether that was providing them with the things they wanted or needed, or showcasing new things which they may have never seen before. Alongside curating a range of imaginative and mostly UK made products, Liz's vision was to re-create the welcoming and vibrant atmosphere her parents had cultivated over 40 years ago.

Kemps General Store, Re-Established 2017

Today the shop stands as a testament to tradition and the old ways of doing things, a small oasis which reflects a slower, calmer way of life.

However alongside heritage, there is also certainly room for the new. Whilst the service may be exactly the same as 40 years ago, the products are decidedly much more exciting!

Long before opening the doors, Liz hunted up and down the UK for the best of British - looking for exciting new brands and beautiful contemporary designs.

At Kemps, we hope you will find the things you most certainly want and may even need, such as an interesting book, lovely art, great cards and wrap or a selection of beautiful tableware. Come along and visit us – we welcome the browsers, the curious and the determined shopper.
