Alexanders of Markethill Giftstore

Alexanders of Markethill is a family owned business that was established in 1954 by husband and wife team, Norman and Iris Alexander.

It began as a hardware store but Alexanders stocked everything from buckets and spades to gramophones, gas cylinders, agricultural equipment, fireworks and everything in between.

Iris developed the giftware side of the business, securing prestigious companies like Wedgewood, Waterford Crystal and Villeroy and Boch, while Norman developed the furniture, carpet and bedding departments.

In 1997, the business passed on to the second generation and it is now managed by sisters Suzanne Laverty and Johanne Maxwell, although both had been helping and working in the store for many years prior. As partners they have developed the business into what it is today.

Alexanders is a trusted, family brand and from day one Alexanders has sought to meet the needs of our loyal customers through providing exceptional service, quality items and an experience like no other.

We are a family department store with a beautiful Home & Giftware Department, Cookshop, Outdoor Living Department, Interior Design House, Artisan Food Hall and Coffee House. 

We are also famous for our seasonal decor and Alexanders has become well known as a “one-stop shop” Christmas destination. Visitors from far and wide regularly descend on our small County Armagh village to see our spectacular displays.

We have lots of our products now available online, but if you can't see what you are looking for just get in touch.
