Happy Canada Day people!

All of us at the store hope you had a great Canada Day.  It was beautiful weather, lots to do and from all accounts a really good celebration, as it should be.

Ours was looking pretty good too until later in the day when it was discovered that someone had badly vandalized our store.  They stole the freezer compressor and tried to steal the cooler compressor!  Yes, you read that right.  This is actually the second time our compressors have been attacked.  The first was Christmas night, late, when someone turned them off.  Both events were on holidays when the store was closed, and one can only assume was meant to cause us the biggest loss.  We've also had our signs stolen or destroyed.

Our A/C guy is amazing.  Kevin Bulmer is the man, and he was there at 2am fixing the cooler compressor – welding by flashlight!  He got it running but it had been off too long; we have lost all our fresh (i.e. not frozen) meat.  We got another delivery Saturday morning of chicken and some beef for hamburger but all those wonderful grilling steaks are lost.  The freezer is still freezing cold which is good.  Kevin came in today (Saturday) to barnacle a compressor to the freezer so we didn't lose it all. Kevin got there, installed the unit and saved the freezer.

I would like to thank all our friends and customers who came in today to support us and everyone sending good thoughts; it really helps. If you're looking for an A/C guy, have I got a recommendation for you!

Our farmers are stepping up too and helping. We'll be stocked again early in the week with the best meat available.

If you hear anything relating to this theft please inform the police.
