The dream of creating Bear’s Market almost ended in ashes when a construction fire on Monday, February 9, 2015 burned the Leakey Buckstop and the future Bear’s Market to the ground. It was a total loss of everything including the Leakey Buckstop. We were devastated! However, no one got hurt!! What a blessing!!
You can let something like that run you over, or you can choose to move forward in a positive and creative way. We had already poured a slab for a barn on the southeast corner of the property, and the structure was scheduled to be delivered that same Friday after the fire. So we decided to put that barn up and put both of our stores in it to get us through this summer season.
So come see us in the red barn!! We have combined the best of the Leakey Buckstop, plus a delicious tasting of what Bear’s Market and Specialty Meats is all about!!
