The Chadwick Family's EMPORIUM OF FINE FOODS


Meat Counter

Fine Meats



Noel Chadwick was born on 20th July 1915.

His parents, Fred and Alice, were themselves butchers and ran their own shop on Church Street, Standish.

His father died on 25th May 1921, but his mother kept the shop running - with the help of her children - until she died on 24th March 1930.
Fred - Noel's Father

Alice - Noel's Mother In and around Standish lived a number of Chadwicks who were farmers or butchers, and were all relatives of Noel's father.

So, Noel - now an orphan at 14 years of age - went to work with his cousin Percy Chadwick who was also a butcher.

In the early 1930s, Noel - now married to Edith - bought premises on Preston Road, Standish.

His shop, Noel Chadwick Family Butcher, thrived and became a familiar landmark in the village for many years to come.

Then, when Noel was called up during the War, his wife - just as his mother before him - ran the shop in his absence.

On his return from duties, Noel relocated the shop to nearby premises on High Street, Standish. And later, a hugely successful stall in Wigan Market was established. Noel continued to build a reputation for selling excellent meat produce right up until his death on 15th November 1995, aged 80 years.

Since his death, the shop has diversified and been completely refurbished, and on 16th August 2000 re-opened as the Chadwick Family's Emporium of Fine Foods.

Today, Noel Chadwick Ltd is owned by Noel's son John Chadwick (Managing Director and Butcher), and is run with the help of his son Paul (Director and Butcher), Jeanette (Butcher and counter service), and Rebecca (Administration and Human Resources).

John is proud to keep the name Noel Chadwick in his father's honour, and to continue his practice of providing customers with the finest quality meat and service.

The Chadwick Family Tree

Since 1761, the Chadwick family have lived and worked within 200 yards of the present High Street site. Throughout these years, we have served the community as both farmers and butchers.

Our common aim has always been to bring the best, local produce to our customers, drawing on the enormous amount of expertise gained in the past and the continual learning process of the present.

It is with a great amount of pride that we provide meat for the community in which we grew up.
