The Butcher Shoppe has been built on a solid foundation of good leadership and integrity. The company has grown out of a partnership between Kenneth Foust and Glenn Koons, created in 1957. At the corner of Scotland Road and Roland Avenue in Chambersburg, PA, the original “Kennie’s Market” building still stands. It was here that Mr. Koons assumed full ownership of the company, along with his wife Lorraine, in 1964. The company was renamed Scotland Road Market, and in 1968 it was incorporated. The name Scotland Road Market, Inc. is still attached to the corporation today. Mr. and Mrs. Koons made a bold move in 1977 and opened a second location on Stouffer Avenue in Chambersburg. This current location houses our today’s operation and has been called The Butcher Shoppe ever since. Due to the growth of The Butcher Shoppe, the original Scotland Road Market was closed in 1980 and efforts were concentrated to build The Butcher Shoppe into what you see today. The Butcher Shoppe has grown many times since its conception under the leadership of Mr. and Mrs. Koons and their family. In mid-2006, Frank and Mary Sue Keath, Mr and Mrs. Koons’ son-in-law and daughter purchased all shares of the company to assume sole ownership, and The Butcher Shoppe is continuing to grow as a leading local business in the Chambersburg community under the leadership of the Keath family and the guiding principles of Glenn and Lorraine Koons.
From March 2010 to January 2011, both The Butcher Shoppe and attached Big Oak Cafe underwent a major facelift. About 13,000 square feet were added, the layout of the store was completely updated along with equipment and technology, departments (or markets as we like to call them) were added, the Big Oak Cafe tripled and the look and feel of the consumer’s shopping experience improved dramatically. Today, The Butcher Shoppe is truly a unique shopping experience, the Big Oak Cafe a non-traditional coffee and cafe experience, and we are aiming to grow and serve the Chambersburg community for many years to come.
