A renowned butchers in Worksop has gone into voluntary liquidation, it is claimed.
Staff at E.A Bird & Sons Ltd, on Bridge Place, told the Guardian they were made aware of the announcement within the last hour.
It is thought the branch in the town has around eight employees and has been situated in Worksop for over 100 years.
Manager, Vince Lunn, said: “The lady who owns the company came in and shut the doors and pulled the blinds down.”
“Everyone is a bit in limbo.”
“The girls will be looking for other work.”
“Most of them have been here seven or eight years and one has been here for about 14 years.”
Mr Lunn told the Guardian that staff had no inkling it was going to happen.
“None whatsoever,” he said.
“We would like to say thanks to everyone for all their custom.”
