Fa­mil­iar faces are Beech­worth’s new butch­ers

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - NEWS - By CO­RAL COOK­SLEY

BEECH­WORTH Butch­ery kicked off with a fresh start af­ter new busi­ness own­ers took the reins ear­lier this week.

Pro­pri­etor Dan Cooper, who has set­tled back in town with his wife Clare af­ter work­ing around Vic­to­ria, said he had al­ways wanted to own his own busi­ness.

“I did my ap­pren­tice­ship in this shop 22 years ago,” the fifth generation Beech­wor­thian said.

Lo­cal iden­ti­ties Luke and Kylie Why­brow who had owned the busi­ness for more than 11 years both said the sale meant the start of a new chap­ter in their lives.

But the cou­ple said they would miss their won­der­ful cus­tomers.

“We’re stay­ing in the area and happy to be begin­ning a dif­fer­ent chap­ter with a good break af­ter not hav­ing hol­i­days for a very long time,” Ms Why­brow said.

Cus­tomers dropped in through­out last week wish­ing the well- re­spected pair the best with many giv­ing them flow­ers and gifts.

Their busi­ness’s Face­book page was also in­un­dated with good wishes for their fu­ture from happy cus­tomers who thanked them for friendly ser­vice and qual­ity meat while wel­com­ing mes­sages to the new own­ers were posted too.
