Shoppers are being invited to have a butchers at a new shop that has opened.

Family firm Dicksons Pork Butchers has opened its 26th shop in Battle Hill, and followings on from the opening of the popular Whitley Bay branch in 2014.

They are selling a wide selection of products to customers, including freshly made sandwiches, a range of fresh deli meats and delicious baked products.

Michael Dickson, managing director of Dicksons said: “We’ve been planning to grow our retail presence in North Tyneside for some time after the successful opening of a new café-style shop in Whitley Bay town centre last Autumn.

“We’re always looking for new locations in the region and are keen to open in local high streets and shopping centres.

“The positive reception in Whitley Bay led to us look for opportunities across the Borough and Battle Hill was a natural choice.”

The new Battle Hill shop takes the number of employees at the family firm to 300, employed both in the South Shields production facility and retail outlets across the north east.

Michael added: “Battle Hill will be offering the full range of fresh food and food-to-go options including our popular signature sandwich and hot food menu, as well as Dicksons’ traditional fayre.

“The opening has already received a very positive reception via our social media pages with North Tyneside customers happy to be closer to enjoying a lunchtime Saveloy Dip or a hot Dicksons pie to keep out the cold and we’re looking forward to welcoming customers, old and new, in Battle Hill.”
