Buying a Butchers Shop from Hilton Smythe

Why a butchers is a great investment

Back in 2013 the UK was hit with horse-meat scandal. As controversial as that was, the scandal did however have a positive impact on the local butchers industry. Trust in supermarket chains was damaged. So meat sales at family-run butchers and farm shops increased by 75%. Also with people in today's economy becoming more conscious of where
their meat is being sourced and the ethical implications, more and more are turning to their friendly local butchers.

Any village or town will have a butchers so this means that they can rely on trade from the local community. In addition to this they supply the Christmas turkeys, the lamb shoulders to families and also many butchers are now boosting their income by supplying to local businesses such as restaurant and pubs.

Buying a butcher shop – keeping the tradition alive

As a specialist skill, the local butcher is in high demand. A traditional butchers shop is often independently owned and family-run, with a loyal customer base. Rewind a generation and the local butchers was the only place to buy fresh, quality meat to cook at home. However even with supermarket competition, many people prefer to buy their meat the traditional way as the butcher’s shop cannot be beaten on variety, size, traceability and specialist meats. With the consumer trend of buying local and supporting the high street, there’s never been a better time to invest in a butcher’s shop.
