Scheel’s

Steeped in a 70 year continuously-owned family history, Scheel’s Butcher and Furniture Store has been a landmark in the Pakenham area.

Starting with a horse and cart going door to door, Milton Scheel and his son Gary offered their butchery services to locals and then in the early 50’s, with his wife Lillian, built the present-day building located on the main street of Pakenham.  At a time when refrigerated lockers were the norm, the store offered fresh meat and storage.  Lockers were replaced with Frigidaire refrigerators and in the 70’s son Gary expanded into appliances and furniture.

Today, grandson Marc has taken over the reins.

Pictured above are Gary Scheel (Marc’s father), father Milton Scheel (founder of Scheels Butcher shop) and his father Les (three generations).
