C & C Butcher Shop on Manchester Road commemmorated its opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony Aug. 23.
Shop owner Bill Torre said he's heard "people are happy" since C & C is the only butcher shop within 10 miles of the area.
"We're small and we're competitive with grocery prices," Torre said, adding that their Boar's Head meats are about $1 less per pound than Schnucks.
Torre said C & C's specialty is marinated steak tips, offering "great custom meats" and USDA quality.
"We hope customers will come out and support the smaller business," Torre told Patch.
So where did the name "C & C" come from? Torre said it's named after his two sons, whose names begin with "C."
The shop in Tammy Square at 15634 Manchester Road.
