The Bradwell Butchery, in Bradwell, near Great Yarmouth, had its shopfront windows smashed in the early hours of this morning (August 6).
Describing the damage as devastating, owner Andrew Edmonds said: 'There seemed no attempt had been made to get in so one can only think it was premeditated mindless vandalism.'
Police are now investigating the attack on the butchery in Crab Lane.
