It is with great sadness that I announce the closing of Steve’s PaleoGoods…
I truly thought we could survive what appeared to be another rough patch, but with costs increasing by the day, the sad truth is I can no longer keep the doors open. Meat and food prices have gone through the roof, shipping costs have skyrocketed, labor costs are way up…the list goes on and on.
While I hate to sound like a Debbie Downer, the last two years have been a death by a thousand cuts. The challenges have become so insurmountable that we simply could not find a clear path forward.
It’s fair to say we had a very nice run. I know I can hang my hat on the fact that I truly loved serving you, my dear customer, who turned to us for the last 13 plus years as their go-to shop for clean and healthy paleo snacks.
I can honestly say it brought me great pleasure knowing that we made what I believed was the best beef jerky on the market. My team never cut a corner and hopefully that came through in the taste and quality of the finished product.
Making gourmet jerky was an authentic craftsmanship. I will miss my wonderful team and I will miss seeing the repeat orders from customers all over the country, those who put their trust in us and supported our mission.
I am also extremely proud of my work with Steve’s Club. When I started the club back in 2007 (while working as an exterminator for my father’s pest control company in North Camden), my only intention was to help give kids a place to go to get away from it all. To my surprise, it turned into something much bigger than I ever imagined.
I’ve met so many wonderful, young men and women over the years, many of whom now have families of their own, pursuing their dreams, working hard at their careers and living productive and fulfilling lives. To this day, I still keep in touch with a good number of the kids who once called Steve’s Club their second home.
Well, I’m not sure how to end this without getting emotional, but I want you to know that I am truly grateful for all of the support you have given us over the years…THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.
After this week, we will no longer be producing product. We will begin winding down the inventory we have on hand. Keep in mind, our meat products will likely sell out fast since they are in the highest demand. Everything is on exact count and once we are out, we are out for good. My hope is you will make one more purchase to help us clear out the warehouse.
One last note. I truly enjoyed writing to you each week and hope you found my emails valuable over the years. I always did my very best to provide high quality content. My plan is to continue to send out newsletters offering health and fitness advice, as well as other topics that may be worthwhile to you. I also plan to send you recommendations of other brands and products that I support. Hopefully you continue to stay subscribed and we can stay in touch!
Again, I can’t thank you enough for your business and support over the years and the opportunity you’ve given us to help keep you and your family healthy.
THANK YOU for everything!
