Butcher, Smoked Meats, Sausages, etc. in Watts Still There?

I'm looking to find out if this place is still open. It was a very large meat, sausage place in Watts on, I think, Western? I haven't been there since 1990, so it may well have closed down 15 years ago.

My dad introduced it to me and we used to go there when I lived in L.A. It was a great place with all kinds of sausages and smoked meats. I think it also had a regular meat section as well.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    That sounds like a place that was on Main just South of Manchester called something like Swisher Sweets which I believe is long gone.

      It was Hickory Sweet which started near USC, moved about 1970, and is now closed.
