Magills Meats Jacob Street, New Zealand, www.magills.co.nz/

Magill's is great - they have the yummiest bacon hocks - no other retailer in Te Awamutu comes close. They have regular specials on fresh and frozen meat products and everything is packed attractively, laid out well and is easy to find. They also sell wine, bread baked in store, cooked chicken, hot chips, ready cooked food, cold sliced meats, fresh mussels and a range of sauces and marinades. They've just begun to produce specialty sausages too - the Romanian pork sausages are great!

They basically sell everything you'd expect from a specialty butcher and more. I've been shopping there for over 25 years, since they were in the main street, and have never had any reason to stop and more than enough reasons to keep on going there!

The best time to go there is first thing in the morning. They sell their day old bread products for $1, no matter what the usual price. Great for kids' lunches or dinner that night!
