Slaters Country Store

Slater’s Country Store is an iconic historical Department store that is located in the very heart of Sheffield. Come in and step back in time! See the flying fox and the ring of the old wall phone. Our friendly staff members are always ready to help you!



Stepping into Slaters Country Store is like stepping back in time. Inside, you will experience some of the history of more than 116 years of trading with five generations of the one family at the helm. Slaters’ original wall phone can still be heard by visitors. The flying fox still flies across the store to a model of Grandma Slater in her tiny upstairs office, and the sad tale of a missed business opportunity is writ large in a mural on the wall outside. All this and great shopping too! Slater’s Country Store has a well-stocked men’s department with quality, practical, easy-to-wear clothing while our ladies’ department carries the latest fashion wear and great casual wear. Along with our shoe department and souvenirs, Slater’s Country Store is a fascinating place to be in. Open 7 days so drop in and have a leisurely browse saying hello to our friendly staff. Step back in time, view the flying fox change dispenser and hear the ring of the old wall phone. See the mural and learn the story “The Missed Opportunity”. This store has been owned and operated by the Slater family for over 100 years.
