Closing its doors after half a century in Worcester, Tatnuck Meat & Seafood bids farewell

Michael Slarskey, the son of Harvey Slarskey, who founded Tatnuck Meats Market in his 30s and later expanded it to include seafood, has announced the permanent closure of their family business in Worcester. After 50 years in operation, the shop at the corner of Pleasant and Mill streets has shut its doors due to declining business and health issues with the owner.

Tatnuck Meat and Seafood had built a reputation for offering a wide variety of meats and seafood, catering to the local community in the Tatnuck area. However, as the neighborhood changed, business started to decline. Michael shared that it was a difficult decision to close such a beloved family business.

Harvey Slarskey was known for his dedication to providing quality products and building personal relationships with his customers. He emphasized customer satisfaction and quality products throughout his career, despite facing challenges running a small business. With the closure of their shop, an era has ended, but Harvey’s legacy of commitment to his customers will always be remembered.
