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 developed into a fantastic brand by Lorraine Firth. In October 2019, Paul and Tracey Clark took over the business from Lorraine to carry on delivering an excellent service to the North Shore community and beyond.

In store, On-Line Courier Delivery Service or Click'n'Collect (May 2020)

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 foods and products at highly competitive prices.

This was our old premises at Anzac Road (Below) we are now at 1 Bute Road, Browns Bay, Auckland.



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 Pakuranga.

2014 Orewa store closes.
2015 Pakuranga and Devonport stores close due to rent prices.
2016 - February Browns Bay store closes its doors for the final time.

2016  March-Sept 2017


Lorraine 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.
