Dobbies Garden Centres has opened a Walter Smith Fine Foods butchery to its flagship Edinburgh store.
The award-winning butchers, in the food hall, offers a variety of locally-sourced meat, including family favourites such as sausages and burgers and a wide selection of high-quality cuts of beef, lamb and pork.
The butchery and delicatessen will offer popular classics like sausage rolls, pork pies, and popular oven-ready cottage pie and lasagne, plus vegetarian options.
The news follows Dobbies recent partnership with Sainsbury’s, bolstering its convenience food offering for customers in Edinburgh.
CEO Graeme Jenkins said: “Walter Smith Fine Foods is a brilliant addition to our Edinburgh store and we’re sure that the butchers will be popular with our customers. At Dobbies, we pride ourselves on offering customers a wide range of quality produce, freshly-baked goods and general grocery items all under one roof.”
Robert Jones, Retail Director at Walter Smith Fine Foods, said: “We’re delighted to be launching our butchery and deli counter at Dobbies’ Edinburgh store, and look forward to customers trying our award-winning products. We’ve been in business for 135 years and we are proud to deliver quality service and, of course, the best quality meats and produce.”
Walter Smith Fine Foods counters are already in Dobbies stores at Livingston, Cirencester, Huntingdon, Stapleton, Stratford upon Avon and Aylesbury.
