The days of the traditional neighborhood butcher shop went on the chopping block years ago, and many were replaced by meat departments in big box stores. Now we are seeing these small neighborhood butcher shops making a comeback.

Plymouth Prime Meats Store Manager Will Cantrell calls the local butcher shop a family-oriented business, like a neighborhood business where everybody knows everybody. They know their customers’ names to make them feel at home, and watch their kids grow up.

Along with personal service, these meat shops can offer special grades of meat such as prime cuts. At Plymouth Prime Meats they even dry age meat at the store, which lends a supreme flavor and texture. Butcher shops like Plymouth Prime Meats also offer a variety of pork, chicken and fresh seafood as well as a wide variety of gourmet seasonings.
