A Kiwi butcher has been hailed a Lockdown Hero this week after he went to work helping a competing store put food on the shelves, NZ Herald reveals. Reuben Sharples, who owns Aussie Butcher in New Lynn, went to work slicing and dicing at New World Green Bay to keep the grocery store stocked with meat, after the store had 30% of its workers head home to self-isolate. “He… helped us cut meat and get stock on the shelves. We are pretty trimmed back with staff so he was a huge help,” said Jamie Brear, owner of New World Green Bay.
