The current owner has run it as Kelvins Butchers since 1998 and the business has flourished under his ownership accruing an impressive number of regular customers and a fantastic reputation, the business really has been a labour of love for him and is now only being sold, albeit very reluctantly and with a heavy heart only so that he can enjoy a well-earned retirement, he is keen to see his beloved butchers shop pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner who can take this already thriving business to the next level.
