So I was walking on Yonge St and decided to drop into Marlons Meats, formerly known as The Butcher and famous for being the poster child of what can go wrong with discount coupons etc. I was surprised and pleased. The counters were full of both raw, marinated and prepared meats, poultry and sausages. The staff were courteous and helpful.
I don't think Marlon was there, but I certainly got the sense that they've learned avaluable lesson and are back in the game full speed ahead. I did note that Rowe Farms, a few blocks south, was empty!
