Dick's Meat Shop
Someone asked me if I had any information on Dick’s Meat Shop. Until a few days ago I did not. Going through old newspapers somebody left for me I found something. Dick’s Meat Shop could be found at 1609 Fourth Ave. NW. Located across the street from Oak Park News. You could order beef and pork in full, halves or quarters. They also cut steaks to order for special occasions. In December, 1985 a side of beef was $1.25 per pound, hamburger was $.49 a pound and cured hams $1.89 lb. Since it was the Christmas season Lutefisk was available for $1.89 lb.
