GRAVENHURST — Now’s that’s fresh.
An hour after its first delivery, the new meat counter at Tiger was full.
On the shelf and within minutes the first sale had gone through the cashier.
The new “full-service” grocer opened at 8 a.m. yesterday with a packed four-foot cooler full of beef, chicken and chops.
Much of it at in-house sales promotion for the opening, Wednesday.
Store supervisor Steve Bell said a GT company sales rep was on hand at 7 a.m. for the first shipment and to help staff load up the counter and stock up the cooler right behind it.
And when the store doors opened at 8 a.m. the neat meat wrack was brimming.
It’s part of the company’s transition to full-service grocer, in response to local and summer demand, franchise owner Jeff Zatorski told MuskokaTODAY.com last week.
GT’s next flyer will promote the new offering.
A new produce cooler has also been added, in addition to the existing dairy, deli and cold meat it sells.
