Welcome to The Emporium website!

Our long established family business has been serving customers since 1974 and we are now operating from our large store and garden centre at 85-87 High Street in Maldon, a picturesque, riverside town in an attractive corner of rural Essex.

A family run business you can trust, The Emporium is Maldon's largest independent High Street retailer selling a wide range of quality items at competitive prices, including furniture, homeware, gifts, pet and garden products. Our customers call us an Aladdin's Cave because of the huge stock of different products which change daily, weekly, monthly and seasonally!

An array of everyday, unusual, novel and enticing products for your home. Come in and browse 100's of carefully selected items sourced from unique importers throughout UK and Europe.
