This day a year ago was hell for many residents of Sturgeons Falls. On July 14th, 2016 a fire in the downtown destroyed several businesses and quite a few apartments. Don’s Butcher Shop was one of the businesses destroyed in the fire. Owner Don Leblanc says he knew he would re-open, it was just a matter of where and when. Leblanc says what made his decision to re-open easier was the entire community plus the Nipissing First Nation were behind him. The new and improved Don’s Butcher Shop has now been re-opened for about a month.
