Boroughbridge butchers shop to go up for auction

The former Greenwood Butchers shop in Boroughbridge is to be put up for sale in Pugh’s next online property auction on 24 February, along with around 70 other properties and plots of land across the UK.

With a £50,000 guide price, the historic former butchers shop is situated on Horsefair in the centre of Boroughbridge. Greenwoods was popular for its range of pies and local meats before the coronavirus
restrictions created wide‐scale problems for retailers. The 19th century property includes a retail area,
storage rooms and bathroom and measures 609 sq ft.

Paul Thompson, managing director of auction house Pugh, said: “It’s always sad to see a local business close, however Boroughbridge is a fantastic community with excellent road links to most of the north of England and there is definitely potential for a variety of business uses for the former Greenwood store.

"It would be great to see the property become an asset to the town once more in the hands of an imaginative new owner.”

Since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic last March, Pugh has sold lots totalling over £38m at its auctions, which have been held on the firm’s online platform.

Pugh’s next auction, featuring the former butchers shop as well as land and properties across the UK, will be held online on 24 February. Registration for the auctions closes at 12pm on 22 February and bidding opens on 23 February.
