Who We Are

 Harrell’s Department Store has been a part of the town of Burgaw for over a century. Founded by Chauncey Harrell as C. Harrell and Sons in 1903, the business remains family owned and operated to this day.  Vernon and Herb Harrell are fourth generation proprietors. The brothers grew up with “The Store” in their blood.  

Throughout the decades, hometown friendliness and responsiveness to our customers’ needs set us apart from large retail stores.  We specialize in items that are hard to find or unusual in some way.

A Burgaw Tradition

We thrive for generations by providing value to our customers. It’s a source of fulfillment and humility that many of our customers remember shopping here with their grandparents.
