The General Store

When to visit

If you'd like to come down to the store for a try-on, we'd love to see you but please give us a call first as we might be out buying new stock.

(We've changed to appointment only as we are moving premises soon - we'll keep you updated)

More than likely owner David will be available to show you around, and can also put together a rail of clothes with suitable brands, style and sizes if you’d like.

Finding us

You will see signage for us, Home Build and BW Farm supplies on the road side. Please use the yard as you drive in to Gatehead Mill for parking. Walk straight ahead through the yard across a small bridge and our store is the building on the left in an old mill office. Call us if you need directions. We are the turn off between Fresca and just before Durr Kitchens as you head towards Dobcross.

The General Store

We reach lots of people though our online stores, from folk around the corner to as far away as Australia and Japan, but we don’t always get to speak to you.

We therefore always wanted to open a showroom too, a place where people can come and talk to us about the product, the history, the zips and finer details – if they want to. This is where the concept of The General Store came from.

Our customers aren’t one ‘type’; you could know your kit and be in to the history of a garment, or you could just appreciate a well-made item of clothing, or you love the thrill of a vintage find.

We wanted to create a store where you could come along for a try-on, a chat and a cup of tea if you fancy.

The vast majority of our product is menswear, but we do have some unisex product. 

Billie, our office dog is usually here. You’re welcome to bring your dog to the shop too, there’ll always be a bowl of water and some treats waiting :-)
