It’s not a bad shop. It’s on three floors and there’s a lift. There’s a step in the doorway with a sign saying ask staff for a ramp, but if you’re in a wheelchair, how are you supposed to get in to ask for the...More

Surprised to see a small Dept., store here as the town is not very large. Quite a variety of things here. I bought some nice serviettes. Nice to see things here that you don't see in larger stores. Very friendly staff.

Kerfoots has an extensive range of kitchen implements, china etc. I rarely manage to visit without making a purchase - often something that I didn't know that I needed! It also stocks clothes and gifts and the staff are very helpful.
