A lightning strike ignited a fire that resulted in a total loss at Galesburg Meat Company in July of 2016. Now, rebuilding is almost complete.

Small businesses can be hit hardest when catastrophe strikes, that's why it is nice to see Galesburg Meat Company preparing to open up shop once again after a devastating fire.

Facebook fans are thrilled at the news too: Ziggy says, "beautiful new building. Happy you chose to stay around!" and Tango Duet gushes, "This is amazing!!!! I am so thankful for GMC!!!! I love doing business here!! Shop local, Support local, Work local. Keep it LOCAL"


The butchers have been working out of their catering building next door and framing began on the new building in December of 2016; as you can see, it is nearly complete.
