Brief History of Business: This family business started in July 1946 when Bill Maiden Snr. (1919–1989) left the army with 7 years service. His father, Tom Maiden (who at the time ran a family butcher’s in Dudley) put a small deposit on the business. This was accepted by the vendors, Ernie Holt and family, who preferred to sell to an ex-serviceman. Bill Maiden moved in as a single man and married Mary Griffin from Leamington Spa in 1946. Then began a long slog to stay afloat, as meat was still rationed and there were already three other well-established butchers in the village. The normal practice was for the butcher to go to market on a Monday and purchase his livestock on the hoof. It was then brought back to the shop, where it was slaughtered and butchered ready for the week’s trade. In the roof space directly above the back of the shop was a large wooden pulley wheel, resting on two huge beams which was used to lift felled livestock up off the floor to be cleaned and skinned. At the time the only toilet was at the bottom of the garden in a tin shed and there was no hot water and no bathroom. Rats were rife in the outbuildings and Bill and Mary often spent their evenings hunting them with a torch and pitchfork.
