Two new independent businesses have opened their doors to customers in Selby's town centre.
Market Cross Butchers began trading on Friday, 11th August, thanks to business partners Dawn Womersley and Selby man Gary Chapman.
Located between Holland and Barratt and Ladbrokes on the Market Cross Centre, the venture is offering locally sourced meats including beef, pork and lamb. Homemade sausages, burgers and meats – all cooked in-house – will also be available in the new store.
Speaking of the new venture, Ms. Womersley said, “We are delighted to be launching our new Market Cross Butchers here in Selby – we’ll be focussed on great local produce and good customer service and look forward to welcoming customers to our new store.”
Market Cross Butchers are the latest business to open in the centre, which is home to a great range of successful national and independent brands.
Another new venture open for business at the centre is independent children's clothing retailer, Mr. Monkeys.
Stocking clothes for children aged between two and 14 years, the store is the brainchild of Hemingbrough woman, Kathryn Ingledew.
She said, “Selby is a great town centre with a lovely atmosphere but I noticed there was not a lot of choice for children’s clothing.
“Market Cross has seen its footfall really grow and there is lots of parking nearby which makes it the perfect location to open my new business!”
Mr Monkeys is located between Brighthouse and Alexander Cards.
