Celebrating 60 Years - 1961 to 2021

Hambys is a family owned and run firm. The business was founded on St. David's Day, March 1st 1961 by my mother and father, Meryl and David Hamby. Originally the business was a credit drapery, supplying clothing, jewellery, furniture, carpets and decorating supplies to customers in outlying villages around Barnsley. Our first shoe shop opened in Chapeltown in 1973. We have had shoe shops throughout Yorkshire but now we have one store in Barnsley. Over the last ten years we have concentrated our efforts on expanding the property arm of our business.

In our shoe shop we have a large stock of quality footwear for ladies and gentlemen - the very best that British and European manufacturers have to offer. Should we not have the size or style you require we will do our utmost to obtain them for you. We also carry a large selection of leather goods and handbags.

The business today is owned and run by Tracey and Chris Hamby, and we welcome you to join our many loyal customers who return again and again.

In 2004 The Hamby Foundation was formed to help the poorest children and old people of Romania and to date the charity has raised sums in excess of one million pounds. This much needed funding has helped towards the building of a feeding centre, a street children's centre and an old people's meeting place. We have helped save and improve countless lives. The Hamby Foundation has a charity shop in Rotherham Market which is run by volunteers.
