Kemps General Store was founded in 2017 by Liz Kemp, a shopkeeper’s daughter and passionate advocate of the delights of her now-home town, Malton.
After 20 years in the demanding events industry, managing a portfolio of million pound events for international clients, Liz decided that it was time to honour her childhood roots and take on a new challenge.
She decided to set up shop, but not just any shop, an emporium of the beautiful and unusual to be exact! A place for people to browse and lose themselves in, a source of fascination and delight, right here in her adopted home of Malton.
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.
