Welcome to The Dale Stores Birstwith, the centre of our universe and our Aladdin’s Cave of treasures.

Our mission is to make our village shop the best we can make it in order to provide a service that our community can be proud of.

We have daily deliveries of pies, pasties and meats from Kendall’s butchers to go with our locally sourced bread, cakes and pastries, fresh fruit and vegetables. We stock fresh fish from Ramus, bacon, cooked meats and cheeses from Arthur Haigh’s, Ian Taylor’s eggs, sourdough from Vanora’s Bakery, a full range of groceries and household goods, beers, wines and spirits as well as newspapers and magazines.

Wherever we can, we source goods from local independent suppliers – we think they taste better and works best for our environment and local economy. If you are a local producer and want to sell your products in our shop, get in touch!

Our Food to Go range offers home-made soups, hot and cold sandwiches, panini and jacket potatoes all freshly made in our purpose built kitchen. Our reputation for our Food to Go is far-reaching – our lovely customers go to considerable lengths to visit us if they are anywhere nearby.

We are fiercely protective of our Post Office Local which is open for a wide range of postal services whenever the shop is open. We also offer a Dry Cleaning service in conjunction with Classiclean of Harrogate.

Whilst you’re here, have a look at our own label range of locally sourcedĀ  goodness – AJ’s cakes, biscuits, sauces, jam, preserves and marmalades.

But, we’re not just a shop. We’re here for our local community whatever you need. Even if it’s just a smile and a friendly word to get you out of the house, come and see us. We’re here for you.

Hope to see you soon

Andrea & Matthew
