We are CLOSED for the time being but will reopen as soon as we safely can.
Please see my letter below. 


From David Wallace, CEO and Owner

Hi everyone,

Around the Block Butcher Shop will be temporarily closed
but will reopen in the future. 

I have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (Corona) virus
situation and following the guidance from government and our
local health officials for the safety of everyone.

I have looked carefully at how my shop can carry on safely at this time. It is a small work area for customers, staff and suppliers. The safety of everyone is most important to me. Therefore I have decided to close for the time being. I will regroup and consider how to approach the future. 

I want to personally thank all of you for your strong support before and during this crisis. The response and all the positive feedback, care and concern have been tremendous.   

I also want to extend my great appreciation to the staff of ATB: Alex, Josh and Sierra, and of course Chantel who has pitched in at every opportunity. They are all great people - friendly and knowledgeable. The suppliers and farmers we work with are also excellent. 

Stay safe. We will be back soon! ATB will be better and stronger than ever.





We all owe our gratitude to our frontline health workers who will help take us through this.
