It’s Time To Celebrate National Butchers Week

This time last year, we were on the brink of going into a national lockdown as coronavirus began to impact on every area of our lives. It is fair to say, the last 12 months have been some of the most challenging in living memory, for both individuals and businesses alike.

Which is why the timing and message of National Butchers’ Week 2021 is especially pertinent. Taking place from March 8-14, the week-long event will shine a light on the hard work done by butchers during the last 12 months.

Here at Lakings, we have strived to remain at the heart of our community during these unprecedented times. Operating from our shop in Eastgate, Louth for more than 100 years our business has evolved through the ages by adapting to various national and world crises during more than a century of trading.

So, it is no accident that customers have continued to step through our doors as well as place orders via our website as we have all adjusted to a ‘new normal’. We have been a constant in our customers’ lives – supplying quality, locally sourced meat products from local farms as well as a range of cheeses, biscuits and delicious Lincolnshire honey supporting customers and producers in the town and beyond.

We pride ourselves on our work ethic, paying particular attention to customer service and customer satisfaction. Something that has come into its own during lockdown, with customers saying that our next day delivery service has been a lifesaver over the last year, when for some, getting out to the shops has been more difficult. We have been able to provide our clients with a first-rate shopping experience, whether that has been face-to-face (socially distanced, of course) in our shop or via our delivery service.

This has been a testing time for many businesses and we are proud to say we have kept doing what we do best – providing a fantastic range of meat goods, as well as a friendly face and offering advice about how to make the most of the finest cuts of meat available to buy.

So, during this celebratory week for the butchery industry, why not explore our range of offers available both online and in-store? Choose from family favourites like a whole herb-fed chicken or cook up a tasty mid-week treat of delicious pork chops. You could also treat yourself to a tender cut of in-season lamb – now that spring is just around the corner.

If you are ordering online you can take advantage of our free next-day delivery service on orders over £50, when placing an order Monday-Thursday*. We love to reward loyal customers with extra special offers and discounts – simply sign up to our newsletter via our website.

If you have any questions about our products or services, get in touch either by phone, by visiting our shop or by clicking the ‘contact us’ tab on our website. We can also be found on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

This year’s National Butchers’ Week is supported by Henry Winning & Co., Innovative Food Ingredients and Windsor Food Machinery.
