The attraction is as follows:
i) The quality is a lot better, better cuts of meat and meat that has been hung correctly
ii) Animals have generally led better quality lives, which means better meat
iii) You can get exctly what you want in terms of quantity and cut
iv) Supports proper and sustainable farming practices and not battery crap
Naturally there's variation, but few butcher shops will source crap meat. Being small independent retailers, they can't compete with supermarkets on cost and so must do so on choice and quality.

A lot of butchers sell poor low cost meat as they use the same sorts of suppliers supermarkets do. I've always seen battery eggs sold in most of them too. If you shop about you can get some good meat though but will pay for it.
