Cheraw Packing Plant, 578 US Highway 1: February 2021
The venerable Cheraw Packing Plant met an untimely demise back in February when it burned to the ground. On the week of the fire, I was thinking about buying some ribeyes from here to grill for my wife's birthday. I had bought ribeyes from Cheraw Packing Plant a couple of times before within the last year or so, and the price and quality were pretty good. Although I can't find it at the moment, I recall reading an article in The Link that mentioned the owner considering reopening Cheraw Packing Plant at the old Pee Dee Ice And Fuel Company building (?), but that plan appears to have fallen through. Since then, I have heard no news about Cheraw Packing Plant reopening. What a shame.
