A NEW family-run butchers from Burry Port has decided to branch out with a new stall named The Sausage Hut, located at Llanelli’s Indoor Market.
Elgan Jones & Sons have decided to offer their substantial variety of over 30 sausages, among other locally-manufactured products, to Llanelli consumers.
Elgan Jones, who’s semi-retired but runs the business with his son, Steven, told The Herald that the company have had a business in Burry Port for a number of years, where three people work.
But recently, they decided that now was the time to open a smaller shop and bring their unique flavours into Llanelli.
The Sausage Hut will host their grand opening of the new outlet at the market next Thursday (Aug 24).
At the opening will be Elgan’s eldest son, John Owen-Jones, who is a well-renowned vocal performer and also a star of Phantom Of The Opera and Les Miserables in concert.
The shop’s opening times are Wednesday through to Saturday from 10am until 3pm.
Talking about the new venture, Elgan said: “We decided that our new outlet would be named The Sausage Hut and the graphics on the front have had plenty of attention as they are so quirky and colourful and feel very inviting!
“Vicki, who works here, has come up from Burry Port to work on the new stall and is excellent with the customers.”
“All of our products are local including our burgers, rissoles, faggots not to mention the large amount of flavoured sausages on offer. We produce over 30, so there’s something for all palettes. Some of the popular choices are chicken with lemon and thyme, and pork with chilli and chive. It’s worth coming to view the vast selection of products.
“We sell many items including bacon, burgers, faggots, black pudding, pork pies, flavoured fresh pies, eggs, butter, jams, chutneys and cockles and are producing a range of new products at a steady pace.
“Our sausages are the best sellers without a doubt and we pride ourselves on supplying quality products at reasonable prices.”
He added: “I was initially an errand boy when I was 13 before I left school and have been a butcher since. I’ve been working in this particular industry for 62 years and it’s wonderful to be able to keep it in the family.
“As soon as we saw that there was an opening at Llanelli Indoor Market, we decided to take a leap and are happy so far.
“We opened a few weeks ago, it’s a lovely size for the new premises and everyone has been accommodating here so far. Everything has been word of mouth so far though as we’ve not advertised properly yet, but we shall in time. It’s lovely to see that there are so many still supportive of homemade produce and we welcome all customers old and new.
“Come in for a look, we aim to please.”
