Now you can find much more in the store since it relocated and re-opened for business last week-end at 439 Butler St. in Saugatuck, just a few blocks north of its prior storefront location. The Butler Pantry is a gour-met kitchenware and fine foods store that sells just about every kind of gadget you can think of, from peelers and knives to seasonal items for sum-mertime cooking. The shop also specializes in prepared foods, from barbecue sauce and salsa to dressing, mustards and marinades as well as its own Butler Pantry brand private label. “We’ve been in Saugatuck over 37 years at the 119 Butler Street location,” said John Jerome, who owns the store with partners Mike Usher and Ray Thomas. “When the hardware store became available a while back, we became interested. The space is kind of a cool space, with brick walls and hardwood floors. “We didn’t do much at the time and this year we thought we needed to reinvent ourselves. Parking at the old location was a problem. We thought there was a lot of good potential here at the new store loca-tion,” noted Jerome. “We’d like to eventually put in a cooking kitchen and thought this would be a good move.” The one-stop kitchen shop offers just about everything customers could want for entertaining. “Our philosophy is that cooking is meant to be enjoyed,” he said. “It is fun and entertaining and we model our store after that. We try to make it a totally unique experi-ence, that customers can come in here and get some kind of gadget, some prepared foods and soon the wine pairings.” The shop will soon offer beers and wines that complement its other product offerings, as it had in the former location. The Butler Pantry is a loca-tion sought out by day trippers from Chicago and Indiana, as well as a go-to place that locals have come to love for specific, unique items and special-ty foods. Cookies on Call is also located in the shop, focusing on offer-ing specialty chocolate chunk cookies for events, internet sales and corpo-rate orders. The business also makes scones and pastries, as well as Salt of the Earth bread that is available for sale in the store. “We are essentially the same business with a great new look,” he said. “We are hoping to make this shop a real destination.” Watch for news of The Butler Pantry’s grand opening event, which will be in June and will feature a day-long event with many sam-plings, tastings, promotions, music, demonstrations and more.
