Crawshaws butchers has been taken over – and will soon be called Sterling Meat Co.
The popular butchers, which has stores in Whitefriargate and Bransholme, went into administration in November 2018, with only 19 of the 40 stores around the country being kept open.
Now, it has been announced the company has new owners, who will be taking over both Hull stores and one of them will be getting a makeover.
Jim Viggars, managing director of Sterling Meat Co, said: “Our new company owners Tom Cribbin and John Molloy, have a wealth of industry experience and they are delighted to be at the helm of our business, which will be led with the utmost respect for all of our colleagues and customers.
“Product quality, customer service and value will be at the forefront of our strategy.
“Tom and John will develop our company, which will be renowned for delivering the very best that the high street can offer.”
Over the next few weeks, new signs will be going up at the stores, with the Whitefriargate store also set for a revamp.
Mr Viggars said: “We are delighted to inform you that our store in Whitefriargate will be totally revamped over the coming months.
