About Us

        Locally owned and operated, The Kitchen Connection was founded in 1994 by Pamela Saunders, along with her husband, Keith.  As we celebrate our 25th year, we continue to offer the Morganton area the very finest in all of your entertaining and culinary needs. We proudly sell cookware, gifts and gadgets, arabica coffee beans, loose-leaf teas, domestic and imported wines, and gorgeous gourmet gift baskets.  Our dedicated staff is ready to provide you with the best of service, even as we wind down our business.

        Yes, our store will be closing on March 30 and changing hands soon thereafter!  The new store will be operated under a new business model with new owners but it will continue to offer Morganton exciting things. . . stay tuned!

       We thank you all for 25 years of support.  Please wish us good luck in retirement!

Wine Discounts

        Voted "Best Wines in Burke", we are proud of our selection of hand-picked wines, both domestic and imported.  Although we carry many upper tier and boutique wines, for the past few years we have been on a mission to find great value-oriented wines in the $8 - $12 range.  Come check out our "finds" and let us know how we're doing!  We think you'll be pleased with our unique offerings.  

        Purchase 6 bottles of wine (half case) for a 5% discount, or purchase 12 bottles of  the same wine (full case) for a 20% discount (yes, that's right. . . TWENTY percent!)

        If you don't want a full case of the same wine, buy a Mixed Case for 15% off!

        Check out our wine page and look for our wine of the month, too.

Coffee Club

       Try our heavenly arabica coffee, either ground or whole bean.  We'll keep a record of your purchases and when you reach 10 pounds, you'll receive the 11th pound FREE!  Check out our coffee page.  

Proud Recipient of the
2013 Cornerstone Award as Female Owned Business of the Year!
