    Are you looking for someone who sells mainly meat or more smallgoods kind of things?

    There is a butcher on Forbury Road, Corner Bayview, I think they are local and the (rare) times i bought something there I thought it was good, they are very nice as well.

    Apart from that, New World in town (not so close to Waverly, I know) has a pretty good meat department, they sell very nice European style ham and salami as well, they even know how to slice it in very fine slices.

    I am afraid I haven't got any good tips, I usually tried to buy what was on offer, but I have not realized a big difference between the prices in Dunedin and Blenheim.
    And, compared to the meat prices we were used in Germany, i still find meat quite cheap

    I guess the butcher is more expensive, which has to do with the amount of meat he buys/ sells, I suppose?!

    Although I am almost afraid to admit it...., I used to shop a lot at Pak'n Save, while we lived in Dunedin, I still think that they have lots of things for very good prices (especially basic goods) and I really found their meat department not too bad at all!

    Britzy,

    Leckies is the one on corner of Forbury Rd/Bay View. There's also some good meat (including organic) available at the Farmers Market.
