Horner's Butcher Block Share

May 1, 2018  |  Layla Price-Bodkin

Horner’s Butch­er Block, locat­ed at 825 East 30th Street, has been a sta­ple in south Mar­i­on for decades. Cur­rent own­ers, Ver­lin and Ten­ley Horner, bought the for­mer Jackson’s Mar­ket in 1995 and have oper­at­ed Horner’s Butch­er Block ever since.

In 2015, Horner’s expand­ed into a brand new 10,000 square-foot build­ing adja­cent to their for­mer loca­tion. The gro­cery now has a 44-foot meat counter, hot food counter with café seat­ing, expand­ed fresh and freez­er selec­tion, a soda foun­tain, and ample park­ing. The Horners’ belief in the pow­er of the neigh­bor­hood mar­ket is evi­dent through their com­mit­ment and invest­ment over the last 20+ years. Ver­lin said, Our cus­tomers are entrust­ing us with feed­ing their fam­i­lies and we take that seriously.”

The Horners have not only been busy expand­ing in Mar­i­on. They opened a sec­ond Horner’s Butch­er Block in 2009 in the for­mer Driskill’s Mar­ket in Fair­mount. And, in 2017, they grew into Madi­son Coun­ty when they opened their third loca­tion at the site of the for­mer Cox Super­mar­ket in down­town Alexandria.
