Supermarkets are slashing their prices in Easter deals but traders at Birmingham’s Bull Ring reckon they have nothing on them. Catherine Lillington heads to market. As families across Birmingham prepare to celebrate Easter, market traders at the Bull Ring say they can save them “a fortune”.
Alan Doherty, 67, has been at the Bull Ring for 40 years and a butcher for 52 years this year. His son Daniel was manning the A&P Doherty stall where chicken fillets are £5.50 a kilo, pork is £3.99 a kilo and beef is £7.99 a kilo.
Alan said supermarkets might be offering half-price deals for Easter but their new prices are what you can already pay elsewhere. He says: “The amount of experience in this market, there’s not just myself, my son came in when he was 15, he’s 43 now. We’ve got over 100 years’ experience on these stalls.”
