London butcher’s online sales rocket from £6k to £1.6m in one year
Parson’s Nose, a business with three bricks and mortar stores, has seen demand for online meat shopping increase dramatically since the coronavirus pandemic began.
The company was founded in 2007 and has traditional butcher’s shops in Fulham, Putney and South Kensington. After transforming into an online business, Parson’s Nose turned over £1.6 million in online sales alone in the last 12 months, compared to £6,000 in the previous year.
Now the company offers delivery seven days a week and same-day delivery from 8am to 10pm for orders placed before 3pm.
Parson’s Nose director, Tony Hindhaugh, said that the pandemic has transformed shopping behaviour.
“Many have now discovered the ease and convenience of ordering online and home delivery having tried it for the first time in 2020,” he said. “This is combined with a renewed interest in cooking and sourcing quality produce.”
He added: “We believe that the popularity of our online store will continue beyond the pandemic, so we are continuing to invest and innovate to offer all the flexibility and convenience of a supermarket.”
