I get mine at SAMs! Find out who does the ordering and let them know you will take a few and them will order them. It works for me

Just a FYI Festival fired all the old employees when they took over, not a cool move IMHO

Super,

Hate to call a brother out but that's just nonsense. I was in there tuesday after the switch and had the same little old lady at check out that's been there for years. Although, I do see a lot of new faces. I sure the management is all new, that's what almost all companies do when they buy someone out.

Most take overs do that then hire them back under the new business name. Not a cool move but somewhat necessary at times to get rid of the dead weight and the unions need to deal with the new company the old contract becomes null and void with the sale.

I agree with both of you, I guess what I should have said was made them reapply for there jobs.
Actually I forgot that a lot of grocery stores are union so It makes more sense

After getting a couple more PM's, here is my local list:

Ghering's Meats 262-644-6272 (HWY K just off 41) and my fav!

Eden Meat Market 920-477-2711 usually really good prices, nice folks too.

Loehr's Meats, Campbellsport 920-533-4513 good products fair prices, killer brats, sausage etc. when you don't want to make your own.

Kewaskum Frozen Foods, (and processing) 262-626-2181 fair prices, largest, most "commercial of them all"
