Bayway Country Store and Butcher Shop's reopens

ST. PETERSBURG — After a two-year retirement, Barry Broder returned to the Bayway Country Store and Butcher Shop in September with an expanded menu and plans to offer a variety of precooked meals.

Broder said he got bored after leaving the store, 5401 Leeland St. S, which he had owned and operated for 20 years. He worked briefly at Morton's Gourmet Market in Sarasota until the Bayway store closed in August.

He decided to return to the business and upgrade a few selections in the gourmet style of Morton's. While the store still specializes in fresh, custom cut USDA Choice meats, Broder and his wife, Kathy, also sell deli meats, fresh produce, groceries, and beer and wine.

"We have added 72 feet of new cases," Broder said, including a wider selection of prepared foods. He said customers can buy cooked beef tenderloin every day as well as freshly baked quiches and muffins. He will still cook rotisserie chickens on order and sell desserts by the slice. The store also is available for light catering.

"The service and the quality are the big things we offer," said Broder. He is selling fresh turkeys for the holiday season at $1.99 a pound.

The store is open seven days a week. Hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. It will be closed on Christmas Day for the holiday. To get more information or to place orders, call the store at (727) 867-7507.
