Noooooooo !!! - Major Meatdown - RIP Rick's Quality Meat

rworange | Aug 30, 2006 10:19 PM

I'm too distressed to even give it the tribute it deserves. I need to mourn a while first. From an email I received today..

"You may want to stop by Rick's for one last look. As soon as he sells out his stock, he's gone. Maybe a week. I was there today and some couple was poking around, looking at buying.

Apparently he's had it up for sale for a long time, maybe more than a year.

I stopped by on Monday and heard the news. The health board forced him to "smoke" his meat directly which lowered his capacity by the tune of maybe 800 dollars a week out of his pocket. That and a handful of other things, like finding good employees so he doesn't have to work 60 hour weeks snapped his back and he is DONE. I think he's just plain tired of it all too. So, he's going to do commercial only accounts out of Oakland."
