100 years young


Nicholson’s Butchers in Whitley Bay is celebrating its 100th birthday by offering customers the opportunity to buy products at 1914 prices.

The Park View shop will be celebrating from May 12-17, 100 years since it first opened its doors on May 17, 1914.

The shop will be selling Northumbrian rabbits at the 1914 price of 16p each, while customers who pick an old-fashioned raffle ticket from a pot on the counter will also get their shopping at 1914 prices.

Owner Doug Nicholson will be touring Whitley Bay atop a traditional horse and trap, giving away 20% discount vouchers to be used on the same days.

The centenary week concludes on the Saturday with a BBQ outside the shop, when free beef burgers and sausage sandwiches will be handed out between 11am-2pm.
