A Kalgoorlie-Boulder woman recently qualified as the first female butcher in the 80-year history of Everett Butchers.

Alice Cacic completed the three-year apprenticeship required to practise as a butcher and is now working at Everett’s remaining location, Kalgoorlie Central, after the closure of the Boulder Road store.

As the first to qualify out of only two females who have undertaken an apprenticeship at the butchers since its opening in 1932, Ms Cacic is an important member of the team, according to owner Steve McKenny.

After the departure of four butchers in a five-week period, the decision was made to consolidate the remaining staff and focus on the store at Kalgoorlie Central to maintain a high level of customer service.
