We are pleased to announce that Clays of Buckingham has been purchased by a local family food business. It will be re-branded and refurbished to re-open as a high-quality traditional butcher and delicatessen worthy of the growing and vibrant historic market town of Buckingham.
We believe that every high-street deserves an independent butcher alongside other quality, independent local businesses and therefore have acted to ensure that this valuable and much-loved community asset, which has proudly traded in this location for over 100 years, was not lost to Buckingham forever.
The team, which is also behind Brackley Butchers, will be undertaking a period of renovation and refurbishment over the coming months, aiming to reopen in the late autumn of this year.
We would be delighted to hear from any local producers – be it of livestock, cheese, jams or chutneys, who would be keen to see their products sit alongside the ranges of high quality local produce being developed for the new shop.
Over the next few months, as we work to prepare the butcher for the next 100 years, we will be seeking to retain and grow local employment and will be recruiting new members to join the butchery and delicatessen team. Interested and experienced parties are invited to register their interest by emailing Robi or use the contact us links below.
