Johnson's of Thirsk chosen as Finalists for Butcher's Shop of the Year 2020

by Andrew Trueman

We are very happy to announce we have been nominated as Finalists in the North of England Butcher’s Shop of the Year 2020.
We would like to thank all of our customers and staff for all their support and hard work.
We have put this Year's success down to a number of factors. Firstly, the kindness, care and diligence our staff provided to customers throughout the COVID-19 restrictions. The trust and the confidence conferred by ensuring a safe environment for our customers to shop safely cannot be overstated.

Secondly, we developed our product-offering along two separate lines – family packs that provided great value in larger volumes so that our customers attended the shop less often but left with the same volume of fresh, tasty produce. Second, a premium-offering of Steaks, Steak-packs, Date-Night kits and similar. We looked to fill the gap in the premium market left by the absence of restaurants, supplying the very best of Yorkshire’s broad and interesting food businesses direct to their homes.

Third, we took the time to invest and develop an online shop. Our customers can access our brand new online store to purchase a variety of Meat Packs, make payment online and choose whether they would like to collect from a dedicated collection point or have a delivery made to their door by one of our local delivery drivers.

Fingers crossed we’ll be bringing back the Winner’s Trophy at the Awards Ceremony in February 2021!
