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.
