Howie revamps Perth butcher’s shop

A recent surge in “eager customers” has led Scottish family butcher Simon Howie to invest in a redesign of his Perth shop.

The shop, which is located on the Old High Street and within walking distance of Perth town centre, is where Howie started working as a Saturday boy.

Now, several decades later, the shop has a fresh new, customer-friendly design, with no expense spared to ensure the shop remains at the “cutting edge” of contemporary retail design and customer service.

Howie said: “Recent months have seen a burgeoning trend for discerning customers to demand certainty about the provenance of their food. Customers are increasingly demanding quality produce and, from what we have seen in Perth, are more prepared to travel in order to get what they want.

“It is imperative that we respond swiftly to such consumer trends in order to be able to accommodate their needs. To this end, we have invested in a comprehensive revamp of our Perth outlet to ensure that our customers receive the best service possible in an attractive and welcoming retail environment.

“Our Perth shop today might look radically different to the days when I worked there as a Saturday boy, but what remains unchanged is our friendly and knowledgeable staff who will happily prepare any cut of meat customers require and help advise on how best to cook it.”
