However, upon opening Monday, Sharon said the business seemed like it didn't miss a beat.
"We thought it would be slow because we really didn't put the word out too much that we'd be open," said Sharon. "But it hasn't been slow."
Longtime customers Carol and Harold Thurber of Beekmantown were among those stopping by the store that day, noticing makeshift signs with the word "Open" on them.
"We've been coming here a couple years," said Harold, who added he and his wife used to frequent the store for its fresh meat. "We've been suffering. Now I can buy my meat again."
"It's more open," Carol said of the store's layout. "It's very nice the way they have it. I love it."
D & D Meats will have a special 30-year anniversary celebration and grand reopening Saturday, June 18. The store's hours are Monday through Saturday, 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
