Forge Stores

The Fore Stores is located in the centre of Penshurst village.

Providing a range of general household goods and groceries, as well as the village Post Office, the Forge Stores provides a much-valued service to our local community. 

The Forge Stores has recently been expanded and is now twice the size it used to be, meaning we are better equipped to offer you an even wider range of products.
