In April 2011, the Millin’s journey began and a birthday is a time of both celebration and for reflecting on the journey so far. After six years of working in the Balgowlah Heights area, I look back on so many great memories, achievements and friends made, with both customers and our staff. Looking forward to the future, I am hopeful of making many more great memories, reaching further successes and enjoying those friendships and hopefully a few more.
It’s all about the people
Our business has always been about surrounding ourselves with great people and working on those relationships as much as we can. Our farmers and suppliers work just as hard ask we do and do a fantastic job in giving us the best possible product all year round. They are our direct connection to the land that we benefit so much from, and are an integral part of the team.
Once again we are gold sponsors to both our local schools, Balgowlah Heights Primary School and St Cecilia’s. We are very proud to offer our products as a donation to both of these fantastic schools and many more local charities and families seeking help from their local butcher. These relationships are also such a special part of what we do.
Working with friends
At the shop, I am so lucky to have a team that is so passionate, energetic and dedicated to their craft every day of the week. As a team, we serve, we cut, we order, we clean, we laugh, we learn and we grow. Butchery is a very demanding job and I take my hat off to the fantastic team that make working at Millin’s the joyful experience it is. I am so excited to see what we can achieve during this year ahead.
Finally it is the relationship with our customers, who we appreciate every time you walk in our door, that we value the highest. Thank you so much for shopping with us, recommending us to a friend or giving us a friendly wave on the street. We are so lucky to have Balgowlah Heights and it’s surrounding area as the home for our business. These are the kind of shops I remember as a kid — long may we keep it going!
It’s time to party with us
As a sign of our appreciation, we would love to see you this Saturday 29th April for our 6th Birthday celebrations. We will be offering a 6% discount across the store, the chance to win one of six Millin’s product hampers, entertainment for the kids with a balloon twister (very keen to see what animals he can impress us with!) and as many free Smokey Texan Pulled Pork rolls as we can produce, starting from 10am onwards.
The past six years have brought us so much joy, that you have all been a part of, and I really hope to see you there to celebrate with us!
P.S. Have you noticed our empty shelves? We’re so excited to announce we are about to start stocking local, organic and fresh vegetables to supplement our free range meat. The displays are on their way and we’ll be visiting the markets every day to keep them stocked and fresh! Keep an eye out for them when you’re in next.
