Wine’ing Butcher opening at former Meat House locations in Bedford, Pembroke

GILFORD — The Wine’ing Butcher will soon open its doors in former Meat House locations in Pembroke and Bedford.

No stranger to the Granite State, the Wine’ing Butcher has two locations in the Lakes Region and has become well known to both New Hampshire residents and those traveling through the area ever since Andrew and Gretchen Arguin opened the first location in Gilford on the fourth of July, 2006.  Three years later they opened their second location in Meredith.   
Though The Wine’ing Butcher is expanding, the quality and uniqueness of this small town market will remain the same.  The Wine’ing Butcher will continue to offer hand select quality products and provide dedicated, knowledgeable customer service. The Wine’ing Butcher will offer a full service meat market stocked with top grade meat and fresh, never frozen seafood, along with a selection of fresh produce, a Boar's Head Deli, local breads, and a selection of sophisticated select wines, craft beers, and artisan cheeses. It will also offer an extensive selection of imported specialty items and custom made gift baskets.

“You’ll taste the difference, experience the texture you want and get the tenderness you deserve at the Wine’ing Butcher” saysRobert (B ob) Smith, who is a resident of Gilford and has frequented The Wine’ing Butcher since the beginning, and has now partnered with Andrew and Gretchen.  Also joining the partnership is Bob’s son, Rob Smith, and as a resident of Bedford, Rob is excited to bring a local market to his community.  
Social media is already a “buzz” celebrating the return of the neighborhood market to Pembroke and Bedford. Former employees of The Meat Market have come knocking on the doors not just for employment opportunities, but also rejoicing that they will soon see their old customers again.  Though The Wine’ing Butcher is opening in the same location as The Meat House there is no association
between the two companies.   
To stay on top of all events visit the current locations in Gilford and Meredith or on the web at  www.TheWineingButcher.com   Those interested in employment opportunities can email a resume to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
