After 80 years, Peters Bros Meats in Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania close

This company was a large part of my parents business, they supply the steak sandwich meat, ham, beef roast, pork roast and so much more to the restaurant at least 3 times a week from 1960 to till my parent sold in 1994.  I can remember even running out there is we were running short of cheese steak meat and Mickey would always open up on a Sunday for my Mom.

Mickey only lived a block away and I would always buy Pennsylvania Dutch hex signs and even sleep skins for my car seats back then.  I still have to hex signs up in my garage.  Tradition

I had a cheese steak party in Denver 4 years ago and place a order from them for the meat and got the Rolls (so important from the same bakery my dad (and Pat's) got them from.  It was a great park and I have had request to do another party like that.

Of course when ever I go back there I would also get Pennsylvania Dutch Ring Bologna from Peters Brothers.

Will miss you Peters Brothers after being open for over 80 years.

Such a shame, sure there are many who will be wondering where they will get their meats from now.

I am afraid there will be so many more of these stories before we get through this. There was an article today about half a dozen major retailers declaring BQ. Did have to Google what a hex sign was, cheers cvc

It's really ashame how this Pandemic and all of the shutdowns have really negatively impacted these businesses and even our supply chain, as we're finding many items hard to find.  Hopefully, with these stimulus packages, we'll find great new beginnings with new businesses; but it's definitely hard to let go of the sentimental ones.
