G Williams and Son Butchers on Bangor High Street, known locally as ’Johnny 6’ has closed after the company has gone into liquidation, after trading for nearly 150 years.

The family run business had been trading in Bangor since 1870 and were famous for their quality meats and home made sausages & burgers. More recently the butcher’s shop had been offering hot meals to take away, breakfast baps and a hog roast outside the shop on the High Street every Thursday, Friday & Saturday.

Liquidators arrived at the High Street shop on Friday and it’s believed that eight staff have been made redundant.

Local Plaid Cymru councillor Gareth Roberts said: “It is yet another blow for the high street and it is depressing to see our high streets around the country struggling.

“Something needs to be done about business rates so that we find a better model.”
