R Yates & Sons Ltd

R Yates & Sons is a traditional country store with an extensive white goods department, selling everything from small electrical items to large appliances.

Founded in 1845 by Ralph Yates, who moved from Leeds to Malton with less than £5 in his pocket. Ralph Yates set up the Derwent Foundry in Railway Street which in those days was known as Water Lane. In 1895 the current shop was built as a warehouse with space to keep and display all the Iron Moulds until they were required at the foundry. From the early 1960’s the company gradually moved the emphasis of its business away from manufacture and over to retail. The business grew and developed into a Country Department Store with Clothing, Shoes, DIY, Bicycle, White Goods and General Household Departments within the original listed building. There is Garden Centre across the road on Water Lane.

Ralph Yates and Sons Ltd remains one of the few traditional Department Stores in the area encompassing traditional values of quality and service coupled with a competitive pricing policy. Having joined Euronics we have been able to expand our range of domestic home appliances from Hotpoint and Indesit. As a result, we can now provide our customers with Washing Machines, Tumble Dryers, Fridge Freezers, Dishwashers and Electric Ovens precisely when you need them.
