"I've been a butcher all my life. My grandpa's been a butcher. My dad's been a butcher," Larry Bunzel with Bunzel's Meat Market & Catering said.

Bunzel's is moving into a bigger building.

"We have 12 extra feet of case," Jeff Zupan said.

"I'll have all my stuff under one roof, and take care of all my customers that way," Chip Bunzel said.

After some 70 years at three different locations, Bunzel's is well-established at 84th and Burleigh -- spending the past 18 years there -- providing pork, beef, chicken and more.

The meat market will be moving six blocks down the street to a new permanent location.

The move is about adding space.

"We have a 20-foot deli case now, where before, it was only 10 feet," Zupan said.

Another benefit of the new location is more parking for customers.

"We have gone from about 10 spots to about 48 spots," Zupan said.

Besides the move, not much else will change at Bunzel's.

"We are going to remain exactly who we are. We are a neighborhood butcher shop," Zupan said.

The current Bunzel's Meat Market location measures around 4,000 square feet.

The new location features 14,000 square feet, and it will include more than just meat. For example, shoppers can expect to find a full-time baker on staff as well.
