Kirkbymoorside is billed as “The Gateway to the North Yorkshire Moors”, it’s smaller and quieter than Pickering and Helmsley but still has a good range of locally owned shops.
Wednesday is Market Day. The market started in 1254 and is still going strong today with a good range of stalls on the cobbled streets. Many locals and visitors make a morning of it and enjoy the opportunity to browse the market stalls and visit one of the excellent local cafes. Note: some of the businesses noted in the guide below are no longer operating but the majority are – if you are visiting do phone ahead if you need the services of a particular business.
This film features Helen, the owner of Scallywags Pet Shop situated at 49 West End, taking us on a tour of her shop.
Working alongside her are Barb and Tania, and Stella the Labrador is often found behind the counter too. This film shows the wide range of stock they hold including foods and accessories for dogs, cats, small animals, fish, caged birds and wild birds. However, if there is something that you need that they don’t stock then they are more than happy to order it for you, and can usually get it within a few days.
Opening Hours: Mon-Weds & Fri 9-5.00pm, Thurs & Sat 9-1.00pm.
Run by the Snowden family for the last 9 years this shop offers one of the warmest welcomes in town and fantastic customer service. If you haven’t been in to the shop do make a visit soon.One of the surprising things is the number of rooms there are to explore and the huge range of gifts, to suit all budgets, they have on offer. At the very back of the shop you can also find a magnificent collection of clocks on sale and Rob Snowden deep in concentration working on his repairs in his workshop. Enjoy the slide show and listen to Hilary and Sue telling us more about their family business.
