Brambles was started by Ann & Jeff Kitching in January 2006 in Kimbolton, a small village in Cambridgeshire.
Being new to retail, starting this new venture was a challenge (to say the least!). However, Ann seized the initiative and started to build the Brambles business, which was not only based on stocking and supplying quality products ideal for its customers, but also firmly grounded in delivering a warm, old fashioned, customer service.
Brambles quickly became very popular in the surrounding areas, not only becoming known as a place to buy beautiful cards and gifts, but also somewhere in which customers could experience a welcoming and friendly environment.
From small beginnings, Brambles had grown into business with a name for supplying high quality goods and service at a reasonable price, carrying an increasing number of the leading brands in giftware, with focus being placed on where possible, sourcing goods from within the UK.
Although the East Midlands had been home for a number of years, the links to North Yorkshire and the seaside were strong, and plans were made to move back to Ann & Jeff's hometown, Saltburn by the Sea.
In 2010 a property became available in an ideal location, and a decision was made to relocate the business. Excited by the prospects of the area, the re-modelling of the interior began soon after, transforming it from the previous delicatessan into a homely gift shop, which opened it's doors on October 4th 2010.
Brambles Saltburn is built on the same philosophy as the original business, stocking a broad range of products in which we try to offer something for all tastes, with price ranges to suit.
Recently, we have expanded to a new online store, carrying over the strong focus we place on quality and service, including products being safely packaged, gift wrapped to cater for every need, and quickly dispatched.
Please feel free to explore the website or visit Saltburn to experience for yourself the friendly welcome, old fashioned service, and beautiful gifts that can be found in Brambles.
