Welcome to the new website
Jan 14 2015
Here at John Gilmour butchers, we are really excited to launch our e-commerce website and in doing so, open a new chapter in our story. Founded in 1946 when William Gilmour returned from wartime service in the RAF, the family business has grown steadily over time and today is recognised as being one of the leading high class catering butchers in Scotland.
Inspired by the younger Gilmour generation, taking our traditional butchers firm online will mean that we are able to offer the very best of restaurant quality produce to everyone and anyone. This milestone reflects not only the next stage in our natural development but also an element of looking back to and our roots when Gilmour’s was a high street shop serving the public in the local community. Over the years as consumer trends changed and the supermarkets surged, Gilmour butchers moved away from the retail sector and began supplying top Edinburgh restaurants with beef and lamb from animals carefully selected at the livestock auction in St. Boswells (Scottish Borders). This transition at a testing time has enabled our family business to continue operating successfully and it gives us great pleasure to once again offer our produce and service to the public via our website.
