25th Anniversary!

The Store Meat Market is celebrating their 25th Anniversary as a local
meat market specializing in quality steaks, ribs, pork, smoking woods,
and a fine selection of barbeque sauces, marinades, and rubs.
Dave Pollard, his dad Bill, and his father-in-law "Bud" bought The Store
in Raytown in 1986. Each man had a talent to share.  Dave had 18 years
experience as a butcher, Bill had been a grocery store manager  for Kroger
and Balls for over 30 years and "Bud" had retired from Allis-Chalmers as a
man who could fix anything mechanical. Together they built a reputation
for selling quality meat that tasted better than at any grocery store.

Bill retired in 1992 and "Bud" kept going until his 80th birthday in 2010. 
Dave's son Chris is the third generation to cut meat behind The Store's meat
counter and manages the deer processing  from September to January. 

This year The Store was recognized by the Kansas City Star as "The Best Old
School Meat Market in Kansas City" and The Pitch has featured The Store in their
magazine.  Come see us at 6624 Raytown Road, we're just minutes away
from the Royals and Chiefs stadiums. Try our squealers, a ground sirloin patty
with bacon and cheese in it and our Italian sausage links have been a tailgater's
favorite since George Brett's 3000th hit in 1992.
