Gerald David goes into administration
An eight-branch chain of butchers’ shops in West Somerset went into administration last week.
Around 50 employees were told they had lost their jobs when they turned up for work at Gerald David Butchers, a well-known chain in the area, after the forced closure of five stores.
However, three of the shops will remain open while administrators look for a buyer. David Kirk, of Kirk Hills Chartered Accountants, the company managing the administration of the business, told the local newspaper the County Gazette: “Hopefully we will find a buyer, which would mean at least some of the jobs can be saved.”
Yet he would not reveal how the business, which was founded by the David family in 1969, came to find itself in trouble.
MeatInfo.co.uk could not get hold of company owner Gerald David for comment.
