Where they know your name, and birth date
Meat is the main reason Alexandria’s B&B Food Market is so popular during the holiday season.
“People say the meat here is fantastic,” says Carole Brunet, who operates the Bishop Street, Alexandria grocery store with her husband, Denis.
The family-owned business has been providing the community with quality fresh meat for three generations. Established in 1948, the business was taken over by Mr. Brunet in 1993.
“We know our customers’ birthdays. Some of them have been coming here generation after generation. We can offer them personalized service,” adds Mrs. Brunet, noting that many value the opportunity of discussing cuts with a familiar butcher. With seven employees, the store has a large number of loyal customers. Meat packages sell especially well during barbecue season, and at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
