HILLSBOROUGH, N.H. — A creepy fridge will soon be phased down at a popular grocery store.
New York City-based The Butcher’s Head will shut down after a 10-year run in New England.
Owner Andrew Dutton says he wants to focus on other projects, including expanding his business.
He’s looking at renovating the warehouse and opening a new location in the coming months.
Dutton says the company will open the new store on Friday.
“It’s just a very small shop that is going to do very, very small retail,” he said.
The Butcher’s head opened its doors in 2008.
It’s been a success story for Dutton.
More than 4 million pounds of produce was sold, and customers said the store was fun.
They bought the groceries, then returned to the store for more.
But the owners noticed something wasn’t right.
I’m sure you will see more of us,” he wrote on the website.
After some investigation, Dutton realized he had a problem.
As part of a recent renovation, the refrigerators were being replaced with gas.
And while the gas has a long-term life of up to 10 years, Durden said the refrigerated refrigerators weren’t in the best condition.
The pipes were bent. “
The gas line was broken.
The pipes were bent.
It was a big deal,” he told ABC News.
At the time, Dorset said he was shocked by the situation.
His goal is to have the store back up and running soon, but it will be a while before the shop is ready.
You’re going to see more people come in to see us,” Dutton said.
