New look for Harrington shop

Harrington NewWe are currently celebrating 35 successful years' trading in Harrington, having opened the shop back in 1977. It has always played a central role in the local community, serving up great local meats, groceries and frozen foods.

To coincide with this we have just completed the re-decoration of the outside of the shop. New signwork has been installed to reflect our new blue retail branding, incorporating the line "Finest Meats and Produce", and new window blinds and transfers have been fitted to match.

From the other side of the premises the foodservice division delivers to caterers with three refrigerated vehicles. To enquire further ring 01946 831163 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
