Award winning family firm opens its new Fox Valley store

28 March 2017

The award winning family butchers John Crawshaws has opened a brand new store at north Sheffield’s Fox Valley development.

The Crawshaw name has been a mainstay of the retail line up in Stocksbridge for more than 60 years and is synonymous with high quality local meat as well as delicious homemade pies and cooked meats.

The company already has four shops in north Sheffield including other stores in Stocksbridge, Chapeltown and Hillsborough – the mayor of Stocksbridge Cllr Alan Laws cut the ribbon at the new Fox Valley store to mark the launch of the company’s latest venture.

The company’s fifth butchers shop is in a new 1,000 sq. ft. unit at the new retail destination which opened in June last year – it can be found next door to Greggs and Timpsons overlooking the piazza area at Fox Valley.

The company employs around 70 people and prides itself on the length of service of its staff, the team has expanded with new members of staff joining the team.

Over the last 60 years the Crawshaw family has built up a wealth of experience in butchery and only sells selected beef, pork and lamb from farms within a 30 mile radius under the local Seven Hills brand.

The Fox Valley store has a full butchery and cold meat range with its popular weekly promotions – the company will keep its manufacturing and butchery production area alongside the butchers on Manchester Road shop in Stocksbridge.  The sandwich and deli business will continue to operate from Manchester Road.

John said: “We are really pleased to be expanding and opening a new store here at Fox Valley alongside our existing businesses.  We hope our customers will be impressed with the look of the new store.

“Fox Valley is bringing more visitors to Stocksbridge which really is great to see and we are looking forward to welcoming customers old and new to the shop.”

Fox Valley is owned and managed by South Yorkshire retail property company Dransfield Properties Ltd, Mark Dransfield, said: “John and his team have a great reputation in our part of the region for the highest quality meat and we are delighted that the company is opening its latest store here at Fox Valley.

“It’s great to be welcoming another high quality local company to the centre.”
