Ferguson of Airdrie
'I’ve got a lot of shops, but none of them run like this one,' says Graeme Johnston, head of the Johnston butchers chain, which has six outlets across central Scotland. With all of their facilities on-site, a central location and a long and strong reputation in the local community for the Ferguson brand (taken over seven years ago by Johnston), this Airdrie store does a roaring trade. Everything, from sausages and bacon to pies, quiches and cooked meats, is made in-store. Meats are sourced from two local farms with whom they share a long-standing relationship – so not only provenance but consistent quality of all of their produce is guaranteed. Try their award-winning steaks and beef burgers for proof.
