Dalton Lowes, a proud 8th generation meat cutter, carries forward a legacy deeply rooted in his family’s dedication to the meat and deli industry. “I’m proud to take over a business my mother and father started, a business my whole family worked hard to build, and a business that has given so much to this community,” says Dalton.
Since opening their doors in
1994, Country Corner Market has grown from a simple meat and deli shop to a specialty food store, catering to their customers’ needs wherever possible. “We focus on high-quality products with excellent service, and of course, everyone knows us for our sausages,” Dalton proudly shares. “Many people will tell you that our chipotle steak is the best steak they’ve ever had, and we can barely keep up making them in the summer.”
What sets Dalton’s Country Corner Market apart is not just their exceptional products and customer service.
“We are dedicated to our strong connection to the Pelham/Welland community,” Dalton emphasizes. “I love the small-town feel. I know a lot of my customers on a first-name basis, and we’re able to be really involved in the community. We donate to a lot of charities, schools, and even stag and does; every little bit counts, and it’s awesome to see how happy people are to get even the smallest bit of help. No one is looking for a handout, but a lot of people could use a hand up, and that’s what we aim to do here.”
Outside of his business, Dalton’s passions align closely with his entrepreneurial endeavors. Whether he’s experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, delving into business studies, or brainstorming innovative marketing strategies, Dalton’s dedication to his craft and community shines through.
He also welcomes the opportunity to support other local entrepreneurs, citing Kimone Johnson of Baja Boutique as an example. “She makes all-natural soaps, candles, body butters, beard oils, bath bombs, and a lot more. I really appreciate how hard she works and how great her customer service is. She sells products at our store and online through bajaboutique.ca.”
As customers gather at Country Corner Market to savour the finest meats and forge meaningful local connections, Dalton’s unwavering commitment to excellence ensures that Country Corner Market remains a cherished destination for years to come.
