Christopher Jackson, the great grandson of the original founder of Jackson’s Meats, confirmed it this evening on Kitsilano.ca with the following comment to our rumour post from two weeks ago.
My family and I are overwhelmed by the support of the community. The rumors are true, Jackson’s is re-opening in it’s original location which was opened by my Great Grandfather in 1911. Myself and my wife Shayna Jackson have taken on the exciting challenge of carrying on the family name. We look forward to once again serving the Kitsilano community very soon. Thank you for your postings, if you have any Jackson’s stories or memories we would love to here them.
Welcome back to the hood. Nothing wrong with a little friendly competition for Market Meats one block west down 4th.
