Down to Pechin’s

The Van repaired, It was tried out by a trip down,” in west Pa speak everything is down from where you are at”, to Fayette Nam. To go to PECHIN’s. Every frugal person in the west of the state knows about PECHIN”s. It’s worth the trip. The values there are unbelievable. To compare two trips, one to wallyworld wall fart and Pechin’s, Well, Pechins wins hands down at $130.00 to the same groceries from wallfart’s $170.00.

But, it doesn’t stop there. QUALITY, cannot be beat. The meat, the vegetable election, and don’t let me forget the bakery. My steak were butchered just before I put them in the cart. The sausage, I watched them grind it… And the baked goods….You have to get a bear claw from there. Po folks eat well if they shop at PECHIN’s.

Why do We call it Fayette Nam?

A study released in 2009 by PathWays PA, in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry, found that 35% of families in Fayette County were economically distressed, that is, failing to earn a wage that would adequately provide food, shelter, child care, health care, and other basic necessities.

It is sad, but this is the way the rest of the state is heading.

    Nothing like that here, unfortunately. H.E.B. has a monopoly and it shows. They suck.

    It was started by a man who survived the depression years. “Beginning in 1929 with the crash of the Stock Market until 1941 with America’s entry into World War II, the Great Depression affected the entire country. Sully concerned himself most with the devastation suffered by his neighbors and family, and so it was during those years, as a young boy, that Sully dreamt of a day when every man could hold his head high and cast off the humility of those trying times. Never far from his thoughts was the despair caused by such poverty. Sully would often say “A man can’t go to work if he has no dignity, and a man can’t have dignity if he is hungry and unable to feed his family. ”
    The old Pechin’s was a rough wonderful place with 19 cent hamburgers and dirt floors and others were wood floors so worn you could see the “Crick” under it.
    I’m not lying, PO folks are just stoopid if they can’t eat well after stopping there. I will say the new store is a lot cleaner than the old store. It ain’t nothing to see 4 states represented by the tags on the customers cars. any day of the week. During my visit I watched as a customer bought an entire display of bakery products. Almost enough to fill a bread van. Last night I chowed down on a 24 oz steak 3/4 of an inch thick that was so fresh that….I could not stop until it was done. The only way to get fresher meat is to kill it yourself. They stock the every hour and if you don’t find it the first time roll around and come back in a bit and the shelves are full again. I have shopped there on and off for 50 years and I will for years to come, until I die or the world comes to an end, wich ever comes first.

    I’m told they call it Fayettenam because the crime was so bad that cops in the ’60s gave it that nickname.

    Thanks for the link!
