Russells was established 70 years ago in 1946 and we took over in 1996.

The centre has grown so much in the last 20 years and with the help of our great team of staff and the encouragement and support of our customers it has been transformed into a home, garden and foodie destination.

Being a family run business we are able to source unique items of furniture and unusual giftware that cannot be found in the large superstores.

The pinnacle of our achievement has been our contemporary licensed Restaurant which has won many awards for great food and friendly service which is now run by Caroline and Rob Petsinger

The warm welcome that all visitors receive from our staff creates an ambience rarely found today, the feedback about our friendly customer service at Russells makes us very proud, this has meant that over the years many of our customers have become our friends

We have several charities close to our hearts: St Wilfrids hospice – we hold monthly coffee mornings to raise vital funds for all the amazing work they do, raising over £100 each month. Brent lodge wildlife hospital – we have a bit of a soft spot for helpless animals so pop your spare pennies in our collection pots to help with their nursing care.

We also support the great work of the Sussex Snowdrop trust, helping the families of children with life threatening illness. Being at the heart of our small rural community we also regularly support our local schools, play schools and village church.

We love creating new things so each time you visit expect to find something different, if there is something you would like us to change please let us know and equally let our team know if we have done something right – it will make their day!

looking forward to meeting you soon,
Lesley and Richard Phillips
