A family butcher's shop in Carlisle has revealed it will be shutting up shop due to 'unforeseen circumstances'.

Oglivie's Butchers & Baguette Bar, on Newlaithes Avenue, will be hanging up their hats around the end of this month.

The business, which has been in the Oglivie family since the 80s, is the last remaining butcher shop in Carlisle's Morton area. 

Run by brothers Jordan and Matthew Oglivie, the shop expects to close around March 30, however, it may be earlier as and when stocks run out. 

"We took over from our dad two years ago.

"The business has been going since 1986, it's been a fair long time. 

"Thanks for the years of support, our customers and our catering customers - thanks to everyone for supporting us for 38 years, all the new and old customers," Jordan said. 

Jordan, who has worked in the shop since he was 15, said the brothers have had many 'good times' since they took over running the business. 

"Ever since I was a little kid, I'd been in the back making sausage rolls.

"The last two years have been good, obviously with its ups and downs, but we've enjoyed it," he said. 

In line with their closure, the duo is launching their final 'plenty for twenty' deal, a mixture of high-quality meats for £20 whilst stocks last. 

 Whilst the decision to close is due to personal reasons, Jordan highlighted the challenges the industry continues to face such as a shift towards supermarket shopping impacting their inventory as well as evergrowing price increases. 

Following the announcement on social media, locals have been quick to wish the brothers well in their futures whilst describing what will be a 'big miss' to the area. 

Kim Sanders wrote: "Aw, so sorry to hear this, brilliant butchers. All the best for the future lads."

Julie Elliot echoed similar sentiments: "Such sad news. Another local business gone. Good luck in your future."
