Community appreciation is important to us at The Butcher Shoppe. We have always been local and family-owned and operated in the legacy of our founders Glenn and Lorraine Koons. Glenn and and Lorraine began and ran this business with a passion to serve both customers and staff. Their examples of generosity, kindness, fairness and grace have remained hallmarks of what we have become and what we strive to continue to be. Anyone who knew them will agree: Chambersburg and The Butcher Shoppe, on both sides of the counter, are better for having had them in our lives. We miss you and love you.
