Shelton’s Meats – Shop Small Campaign
Shelton’s Meats in Castle Mall was opened over 30 years ago by Ron Shelton. Matthew Wright has been the proprietor for 14 years and has continued the family store. Shelton’s Meats are generous in their community involvement by giving to charity and donating to schools.
Shop Small Campaign was introduced in November 2013 to promote and encourage people to support local small business. Small businesses are the backbone of our great community. As part of Shop Small Campaign, I had the wonderful opportunity to ‘serve’ behind the counter and also cook some of Shelton’s Meats award winning gourmet sausages.
