Let butchers open during the lockdown

Many people including myself buy their meat at independent butchers rather than the supermarket.

Now the butchers have been told they have to close as they are 'non-essential'. 

We, the signers of this petition, disagree.

  • It is unfair and makes no sense. A dairy and a greengrocer can open but a butcher next door cannot.
  • Supermarkets shouldn't be given a monopoly on the sale of meat.

Petition to New Zealand Government

Let butchers open - they provide an essential service and don't let supermarkets destroy their businesses.
