Tell us about your business:

“At Mike’s Deli, we sell a wide range of Barton’s pickles, homemade coleslaw, fresh bread, barms and subs. We also sell a wide range of cooked meats such as natural turkey, natural leg pork, ham on the bone and everyone’s old favourite – chopped pork. We have a variety of pies and cakes from award-winning steak pies to yummy fresh cakes! We have also recently become the only Kirkby stockist to sell JD seasonings. You can find out more about us on our Facebook page.”

How did you start?

“The business has been trading in Kirkby since 1986. It’s a family-run business with three generations having worked here over the years! We first started in ‘Supa Shopper’ then moved into the ‘In Shops’ around 1989. By this time, my business had really grown and I needed three units and more staff to help out. I then decided to try the new Kirkby Market when it opened in April 2014. I now trade six days a week – Monday to Saturday.”

Tell us about your offers:

“We sell a pack of twelve barmcakes for just £1.39 and sell new JD seasonings for £1.45. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, you can buy a pound of bacon and pound of sausage, and get half a dozen eggs for free.”
