Black Friday?... It's a no from us.

Black Friday, Christmas -

Anyone else a bit sick of all this #BlackFriday stuff? Wasn't it supposed to be one day? Now it's all 'Black Friday', 'Cyber Monday', and a fortnight of nonsense before hand. Anyway, for the third year in a row, we aren't getting involved (I'm sure you've noticed).

We love EVERY Friday equally. Mainly because we usually make loads of sausage and have a sausage sandwich for lunch. So, we're sorry if it disappoints anyone, but that's what we were doing on #BlackFriday as well, because we decided not to take part in any of the marketing gimmicks.

Why not?

Well basically, being a small independent family business, we struggle for time with everything we already have to do. We don't have a marketing department, or social media department, or anything like that. We update the website ourselves, do the photography, product description. We basically do everything ourselves, which is pretty hard work, but we're not complaining, we love hard work, and we love what we do. We also work really hard week to week making sure our prices are competitive and fair for all our customers, and we think it would be rather unfair to punish our (very well organised) customers who have already ordered their Christmas meats for December delivery. 

We think it's the right thing to do. Feel free to let us know what you think in the comments below. Thanks.
