Tatnuck Meat and Seafood: A Legacy Closes After 40 Years of Service

Tatnuck Meat & Seafood shuts its doors in Worcester after half a century

After 40 years of operation, Harvey Slarskey’s beloved store, known as Tatnuck Meat and Seafood, has closed its doors. The family-owned business that began as a meat market in the 1970s had expanded to include seafood options in 2011. However, declining business and health issues faced by Slarskey have forced the closure of the store.

Harvey Slarskey was passionate about providing high-quality meats and seafood to his customers in the nearby neighborhood of Tatnuck. His son Michael stepped in to help with the business three years ago as his father’s health declined. He expressed gratitude to their loyal customers over the years and acknowledged that 50 years in business is quite an accomplishment.

Slarskey founded the store when he was in his 30s after working in the cattle industry. He built strong relationships with his customers by providing top-notch customer service and always ensuring that the products were of high quality. The store was known for its wide range of meat and seafood options, including fresh fish, chicken, beef, and more.

The decision to close was not an easy one for Michael, but he knew it was necessary due to declining sales and Slarskey’s health issues. Despite this setback, Slarskey will always be remembered for his commitment to quality over quantity and his dedication to serving his community for decades.
