Scottish Butcher Shop of the Year WinnerStewart Collins
We are delighted to let all our customers know that we were recently announced as winners of the ‘Scottish Butcher Shop of the Year 2020’ at the recent Butcher Shop of the Year Awards, an award that we have now won for the 3rd time.
The awards, which usually take place at a glitzy ceremony in London, were moved online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Entrants for all the award categories came from butcher shops the length and breadth of the UK.
The judges felt that S. Collins & Son ‘presented an inviting, well presented shop, with friendly, knowledgeable staff, offering a wide range of products. They are a go-ahead business, that identifies a wide range of opportunities to take the business forward in the future’.
Speaking about the award, Senior Partner, Stewart Collins said “We are absolutely thrilled to have won this award again, the competition this year was extremely high, so to be chosen as winner of the ‘Best Butcher’s Shop in Scotland’ is something that we are extremely proud of”. All the members of our team work very hard to provide our customers with great customer service and quality products which we source from farms all across Scotland and then deliver to our customers who located all over the UK.”
Stewart went on to say “This year has been very difficult for everyone as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. As a business we have put a number of things in place to try and help our customers get through it, such as, specific opening times for the vulnerable members of our community & NHS workers, extra local deliveries for those customers who were shielding and who could not get to the shop as well as ensuring government guidelines were followed for things like customers wear face coverings, observing social distancing and sanitising their hands upon entering our shop. S. Collins & Son also play an active part in our community and we are currently spearheading a campaign to raise funds for a defibrillator for the village of Muirhead”.
