Good day to all,

     First off, my apologies to any duplicate e-mails!! I wanted to let
you all know an opportunity has arisen in the U.P.  Our local meat
store/local custom processor has put her business up for sale, this
family business has been in operation since at least the mid 60's. The
store( Downtown Meats) is located in Pickford ( approx. twenty miles
south of Sault Ste. Marie), is an established retail meat outlet( full
line meat counter, makes their own sausages and lunchmeats,old style
smokehouse( actually using wood) and also does custom cut,wrap,freeze
for local farmers and others that raise animals for their own
consumption). If you or anyone you know may be interested, please
contact Jenny Leach at (906)-647-2471 for further details, this could be
a great oppurtunity for a family that would like to be in business
together or someone that may want to be self employed.
