Trading Post Processing and Butcher Shop

Pell City — New to Pell City is Trading Post, an old fashion styled butcher shop that offers a variety of meats that have been processed at the store as well as fresh dairy products, Amish foods, homemade apple pies and much more.

Bruce and Bouvier Ervin are the owners of the new store. Bruce’s reasoning for developing the business was to have one area of service where he could serve people in contrast to his previous employment in the construction industry. Bouvier said, “I’ve always wanted a place that had the feel of an old butcher shop.”

With its unique services and look, the Ervins say that they want the city of Pell City to gain a store with a country brand and fresh products.

“We want to provide quality products at an affordable price,” said Bruce.

Bruce said that he began processing deer two years ago with this store in mind. Now, with a full-service slaughterhouse, the Ervins say that the current store is just a phase of the trading post. They hope to grow and become a community staple while rearing their children, Ethan and Major in the family business.

The Ervins invite the community to come out to get all of their products and snacks for entertaining.

With a room full of fireworks to choose from, an entire night’s festivities and food can be found in this one store.

You can find further information on the Trading Post by liking them on Facebook and by visiting them at the store located at 225 Old Coal City Road in Pell City.
