The longest established independent department store in the country!
On June 4th 1837, Garwood Burton Palmer and his brother opened a small linens and drapery shop in Great Yarmouth Market Place. Over 175 years later, Palmers is still an independent family business, but now that small shop is a full-line department store with four other branches across the eastern region. It is one of the largest independent retail companies in East Anglia employing over 400 staff and boasting the title of 'longest established independent department store in the country'.
Times may have changed, but the family still believe that customers benefit from dealing with real people with real values rather than another cloned faceless high street corporation. At Palmers we feel strongly that shopping is not just about the lowest price, but a high quality of personal service so often forgotten in today's retail environment.
