AFTER 45 years of service to the people of
Dunmurry Livingstone Butchers at 160 Kingsway will close its
doors for the last time on Saturday (January 26).
William Livingstone took over the Dunmurry
butchers in 1963 and it is with a heavy heart that he has
decided to retire and close the business after 45 successful
William, who trained as a butcher with
Coffey's, took over the business when he was just 19 and his son
Stuart joined him 23 years ago. Another member of staff, Gary
Stevenson, has worked at Livingstone's for some 25 years, giving
the business a real family feel.
Before closing, William expressed his thanks
to everyone who has supported the business over the years. "I
think we will be missed in the village but everything has to
come to an end," he said.
"I will be a bit sad at the time but I am
looking forward to retirement.
"I would like to thank all our customers for
their loyalty over the years," he added.
