One of the best meat markets in Reno will close Monday night. Another victim of the economy.

    Well, I think it was also a victim of the decision to open a second store and go toe-to-toe with Whole Foods.
    But it is sad to see the stores closing. Got some nice wine deals.

      I was under the impression that it was temporary and only 1 store will close permanently. I love Butcher Boy and hope 1 store remains.

        That's the plan. But if the owner couldn't figure out a way to avoid bankruptcy liquidation, I'm not sure how he's going to come up with the money to reopen one of the stores.
