I went to Eastside Market the other day and all I can say is WOW...Wonder what happened to the best little meat market in town, It was very dirty, shelves were almost empty. Could they be closing? Did the foreigners take that place over? Well let me take that back cause their stores are pretty much clean.

Ya what Did happen to eastside market?? Wow is right!! Sad that the new owner has ran that place to the ground. And he's a Decatur native that grew up with shopping at eastside and worked there as a young adult. He should be ashamed of himself for what he has done!! The old man should come back and get it right and resale to someone that cares!!

Well went in the other day ( I love the meat manager) lol..Not that way I'm saying any cut you want or need he can do it. But I was saddened to go in Monday and see the have pre packed meat. I thought it was a fresh meat market but when I went to look at the meat it was dark , needless to say I went to Krogers their meat isn't too bad. Then Oh LORD I went up front to purchase some items and I don't know where they got that man from but they need to get rid of him, never said a word to me just pointed at things, drop the change in my hand like I had some kind of disease there was no customer service up there at all. Well I'm just saddened to see the little corner meat market going down the drain like that.

I think everyone should ask for Steve and ask him what in the world are u thinking... And watch him stutter with his words. Cuz he usually hides in his office like a coward!!!

It is so sad to see the "best" meat market In Deatur going down the tubes! I have been going there, for let's just say 30+ years, and it is hard to take. Steve has taken this place from a "family" store, where you can get what you want to a "I don't care about you" store. I know he has told his workers not to socialize, but when you have customers that have been going there for years, we all are like family! I'm really going to miss you Eastside Market...because this won't last!(love you guys!)
