Couple to set up shop
By DIANE BISHOP
An old-fashioned butchery that
promises to deliver a personal touch
is set to open in East Gore.
Goodmeats Butchery, which will
open its doors to the public next
Wednesday, is owned and operated
by Gore-based stock agent Roger
Toogood and his wife Jo.
The couple already operate a
wholesale meat business but this is
their first foray into retail.
''We needed a place for storing and
processing carcasses so we thought
we might as well open a shop.
Getting into retail's the icing on the
cake,'' Mr Toogood said.
As a stock agent, Mr Toogood has a
good eye for picking his own stock,
which will be processed in their
Huron St premises, formerly
The Toogoods have completely
revamped the building.
Butchery manager Chris Hill, more
than 30 years in the butchery trade,
said Goodmeats Butchery would
operate as an old-fashioned shop.
''It's about getting back to basics and
offering the personal touch. I want to
know all my customers personally,''
Mr Hill said.
The butchery will also offer fish
products, specialising in smoked
Stewart Island salmon.
Mr Hill said there would be some
''really good'' meat specials when the
shop opened on December 5.
