A butcher's shop in New Addington has closed down for good.

Meat Express at 11 Central Parade closed its doors for the final time on Tuesday night, much to the displeasure of residents around the area.

"Oh no, I always bought my meat there," one person said. "They always had a smile on their faces and very friendly; they will be missed for sure."

"Really going to miss this butchers, shopped there for many years," another said.

The manager at Meat Express confirmed the store had closed down, citing there "wasn't enough business."

When asked about how people who have already given the store money for things such as the Christmas club, he said he had already contacted four people in regards to it and would get in contact with the others shortly.
