While Christmas is a time of goodwill and cheer, it can also be a stressful time, as you navigate around the busy shops, trying to pick up essentials for the big day. Fear not, as the multi-award winning James Whelan Butchers is on hand this festive season, to help shoppers create the perfect feast this Christmas. The popular butchers will open their Dunnes Stores, Cornelscourt butcher shop for 107 hours straight in the lead up to Christmas Day.
Whether you’ve had a turkey mishap, or forgotten to grab the ingredients for your Christmas morning Irish fry, James Whelan is your one-stop shop for any last minute shopping.
During the lead up to Christmas day, the artisan butchers will be open from 7.00am on Thursday 20th December, until 6.00pm on Christmas Eve. James Whelan Butchers opened its first shop in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary in 1960 and today the artisan butchers are now recognised both nationally and internationally, for their fantastic produce.
In the lead up to the Christmas rush, Pat Whelan of James Whelan Butchers spoke on the decision to open for 107 straight saying, “It’s quite amazing to look back on the last few years and see how much our small business has grown and is still growing. To be able to operate on a 24-hour basis in the lead up to Christmas is a testimony to the fantastic team who are making this possible and hopefully we can help any last minute Christmas food shoppers out of any sticky situation!”
Pat continued, “Christmas is a very special time of year and we want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to shop at a time that suits them, in this hectic pre-Christmas week. The 24 hours service is something we introduced last year in our store in Cornelscourt and the feedback was really positive – time poor people being given the opportunity to shop anytime day or night, while still getting amazing quality products and service.”
