Whitelaw Sausage Company Closed!

WHITELAW - Whitelaw Sausage Co. has closed its doors after more than 60 years, leaving its future unknown and customers without the famous Whitelaw Sausage wiener.

According to some local residents, the store closed due to financial difficulties. The owners, Randy and Ellen Winkler, were unavailable for comment.

Very sad. First of all there is all the nostalgia I have regarding this store. Eating lollies and drinking soda pops on its doorsteps (that's alright health nuts I was riding a bike and this was before video games) on the way to or from baseball games, practices, visiting friends etc.

Then my latest passion for the store centered on its meat products. Namely its wieners and bacon. The wieners were the best and so too the bacon. I will sorely miss those products.

For the last couple of years the Whitelaw Sausage Company participated in Appleton's Farmers Market, no wonder why they were not there this summer.
