About Us

Take a nostalgic trip down memory lane with us, as you stroll through our online store and see many of the goodies you thought you had left behind. Whilst we've been open for over 10 years, the UK Grocer was purchased by Lorraine Firth on 1st February 2016 and changed to an online store ONLY.

Our objective is to be the “One Stop Shop” of branded British grocery products. Our emphasis is to supply you with a comprehensive range of UK food and groceries at highly competitive prices.



The UK Grocer began trading in 2002 under the name Bramptins and brought memories long forgotten to New Zealand. Originally located in Browns Bay, North Shore.


Business grows and more stores are opened across Auckland - Devonport, Orewa and Pakaranga.

2014Orewa store closes.
2015Pakaranga and Devonport stores close due to rent prices.
2016 - FebruaryBrowns Bay store closes it's doors for the final time.
2016 - MarchLorraine Firth purchased UKGrocer.co.nz and trading name Bramptins.co.nz. Trading as an online business only due to the cost of importing and rent made prices to customers increase beyond realistic means.
