George Nicolson Decorators

Saunderson's Butchers

Case Study

Saunderson’s Butchers

George Nicolson were pleased to be asked by Mr John Saunderson of Saunderson’s Butchers, 38-40 Leven Street, Tollcross, Edinburgh, to decorate the exterior of his shopfront.

Our trained operatives were required to scrape off and remove all loose and flaking paint to the previously painted timber and stonework to the double shopfront. Bare areas were then primed, filled and prepared before undercoat and gloss paint were applied.

In addition, interior works were also completed to the staff sitting area and the area to the top of the spiral stair, aswell as the spiral staircase itself.

All works were completed with minimal disruption to the client whilst this busy shop continued to trade as normal.

Saunderson’s Butchers was founded in 1958 and is a family run butcher, owned and operated by 4 generations of the same family. They have faithfully served the Edinburgh community with the finest quality meats for nearly 60 years.

The skills and experience at Saunderson’s can help you buy with confidence and get the most out of your purchase. They buy Free Range Pigs, Scotch beef and Scotch lambs in the Scottish Borders. They offer a nationwide delivery service, local delivery as well as Click and Collect. To order online, simply visit their website and view their vast selection of beef, pork, lamb and meat packs:
