Brindon Addy extension results in boost to business
J Brindon Addy’s butcher’s has invested in a £160,000 extension, which has doubled its retail area and improved business.
The project was carried out on the shop, in Hade Edge, near Holmfirth in West Yorkshire, during its 21st anniversary year. Brindon Addy, who has been in the industry since he took a Saturday job at the local butcher’s shop when he was 11, said the new extension had been well received. He added: “Business is running above the budget we predicted and one thing’s for certain – we have now changed from being a small butcher to a small food hall.
The project has meant that Addy’s has been able to extend its displays and showcase its meat products and homemade ready meals more effectively. It has also been able to introduce other lines, such as fish, vegetables and ice creams.
“As a direct result, we are now supporting more local suppliers and producers, which provides a timely boost to the local economy,” added Brindon.
The butcher is the national chairman of the Q Guild, which represents 120 quality butchers around the UK.
