Location

Because of the great transport links Bromsgrove District Council is aiming to create a technology corridor along the A38 which will obviously increase the number of people visiting the town centre. Bromsgrove railway station is situated to the south of the town and was rebuilt in 2016 at a cost of £12million. There is also a bus station close to the business premises, buses operate to a wide area of Worcestershire and West Midlands.

Butchers Block Meat & Deli is ideally situated in the unusually busy and vibrant High Street in Bromsgrove alongside other complimentary retail businesses many of which are independents. The business enjoys great levels of footfall and passing trade.
