BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – Those getting ready for their holiday feasts were at Catullo Prime Meats in Boardman on Thursday.
The owner says the store has been busy the entire month, thanks to its new online ordering system. But many people came in to say hello and pick up their food in person.
“Since I was 14, I’ve been waiting on some of these customers’ families, and I get to live their traditions as well,” said owner Danny Catullo. “That’s what makes it so fun for me to be a small business owner in this community.”
The local butcher shop has been owned by three generations of the Catullo family.
Customer Rick Kitchokoff has been coming to Catullo Prime Meats since it was located on Midlothian Boulevard. The shop is now located in the Poland West Plaza Shopping Center.
“I grew up on the west side of Youngstown. We moved to Hubbard, but we still come to Catullo’s for our ham and kielbasa, because it’s the best in town,” he said.
