If you would like me to write on a specific supermarket or retail meat topic please contact me.
I will place a link to the article here when I have completed your request (no charge)
This site is dedicated to help for Retail Meat Operators, specifically Independent Supermarket operators of retail meat shops in Independent Supermarkets.
Everything relating to retail meat operations is included, also helpful to supermarket operators.
After a lifetime in the retail meat business, this has been my contribution,for about ten years, to the trade I enjoyed so much, 95% of my contribution was available free of charge
Every facet of operating in the non-chain environment is covered, I found out, the hard way, how different and difficult it was to change the mindset and methods from those of mega unit chain stores to independent market(s)
The approach to advertising, pricing, shrink, inventory, merchandising, customer service etc , MUST and Should, be totally different as an entrepreneur.
All this and more is covered plus available MS Excel spreadsheets to track and ensure a profitable retail meat business.
There are hundreds of articles and resources on this site, zipped (where applicable) for easy download.
I have to make the decision after 10+ years, to convert the site into a membership site.
A little help is needed because affiliate income, which helped with costs of running and maintaining the site, has been more and more inconsistent the last few years.
The cost of membership is minimal, I figured $15 a year would be fair, this is just to cover the costs of running the site
Thanks to all my long-time readers and supporters for their encouragement, some even suggesting $15 is way too low, however, it was never my intent to make money from the site,
I hope everyone understands!!

Tony’s Musings…Retail Manager
A retail manager has to be a person of varied talents, being the top dog in a retail store means wearing many hats.
You are the top executive in the store, you must portray an image of authority in appearance and demeanor.
Employees look to you for guidance in the performance of their tasks, and sometimes with personal issues.
That means conveying your authority through your actions, while keeping an even keel when the job gets frustrating.
Interact with employees with authority in matters of work, discipline and job performance, then be genuinely interested in helping with their personal problems.
Remember, good employees don’t like “soft” managers, they expect constructive criticism or praise depending on the situation, they expect a constancy of inspection.
FIRM, but FAIR is a winning approach!
Until next time.
