About Our Store

Grovers first opened in 1968 and remains a family owned and run business today. In that time our store has moved to larger premises and has become known for being an excellent destination for all we do. Our in-store team have been together for years and our aim is to give you the very best help. A quality of service you do not always receive while shopping these days.

Grovers Foto-Shop - in 1991 Grovers opened Our area's first destination for photo-finishing. Today, Grovers has a variety of solutions which are seldom seen in any town centre. These days traditional chemical (wet) photofinishing has given way to dry lab technologies. This new technology is quicker but can not compete with the quality of traditional printing. So, because choice matters, Grovers has both these options and you get to use our 8 excellent Kodak Kiosks. These Kiosks will help you make the very best of your photographs; creating books, greeting cards, cropping and enhancing your photos too. You can choose many other gifts and on to many types of material as well as super large posters. We have an in-store studio for portraits as well as other types of photography. We display the best cameras and a great selection of accessories all from the top manufacturers. Additionally, we have an excellent copy shop range of services. Colour or black and white and finished with binding or laminating. All this is backed by a personal and professional advice drawing on 30 years experience.

Grovers OpticsShop - since opening a photo department in-store, we have been offering a range of binoculars and telescopes. This has now grown to be a major part of our business and serves people with all levels of interest across the North and beyond. We stock the major brands and have knowledgeable advice. All this backed by an excellent relationship with our suppliers, the biggest names in astronomy and terrestrial optics. We are closely associated with many astronomical societies and natural history groups that use these telescopes, binoculars, microscopes and many other devices. We are committed to support their work in increasing understanding of both our world and the beyond.
