Give the gift of meat!

I’ve been trying to visit as many local stores as possible this wonderful season. I’ve been trying to get to as many stores in downtown Goderich as possible, as many of them are open (I hear over 70% pre-tornado) and they have some great deals!

Last week I ventured in to Shanahan’s Quality Meats to get some meat, bread and cheese. Cheese melts me, it really does. I would possibly be a size 4 if it wasn’t for cheese, but I would rather sacrifice and have my joy for the yummy milk based product! Anyway, I was so excited to see their wonderful selection. They have all cuts and varieties of meats, bake their own bread, have unique cheeses, sauces, jams and more!

A regular meal at my house has turkey in it, as it has become my fave. Shanahan’s brings in Hayter’s Turkey cuts, so I don’t have to head up to Dashwood as often. While I was in the store my mom mentioned to me that she got a 30 pound turkey cut into quarters and they only charged her for the bags, $4.00, now that’s customer service! Oh and they have fresh baked pies and a few other treats too.

So I say, give the gift of meat! If you are looking for that last minute present for someone who is hard to buy for, well everyone needs to eat right? Who wouldn’t love unwrapping a scrumptious prime rib roast on Christmas morning? Ok, well they do have gift certificates and non-perishable items as well, they will even make a great gift basket for you!

I have also heard they are making chili’s, soups and sandwiches fresh.I can’t wait to go back again, maybe lunch next week!

When I walk around the downtown I realize that I don’t just shop to buy things, I shop downtown to see friends and the great smiling faces of employees. I had planned on making it to every store on the Square in one day and only made it to four!
