Butcher jobs saved
MORE than 200 jobs have been saved at Crawshaw after it was bought out of administration for £1.4m.
Thomas Cribbin, 55, an Irish meat entrepreneur, has bought the butcher chain’s 19 remaining stores and its warehouse in Hellaby, South yorkshire. Crawshaw, founded in 1954, shut 35 stores last month after it fell into administration, affecting 350 staff.
Cribbin’s buyout has secured 240 jobs. The purchase was secured through Loughanure Limited, a company formed just weeks ago to buy Crawshaw.
