Save-On Meats Greeting Card


Description & Details

Located on the once-bustling Hastings Street corridor, Save on Meats has welcomed the residents of downtown Vancouver since 1957. Starting as a full-service butcher shop, owner Al Des Laurier later added a lunch counter, home to the legendary cheese burger, and a grocery store converting a butcher shop into a community hub. After a short closure in 2010 with Al’s retirement, the updated east side icon reopened to again serve the community with entrepreneur Mark Brand, who shared Al’s community vision. The iconic “flying” pigs neon sign was the creation of Wallace Neon’s art director who retained the 1940s-era revolving sign. The new sign adds new lettering along with the famous pigs.

Keith McKellar's main collection of works focuses on the vintage cafes, theatres and street scenes of Vancouver BC. Keith was born in New Westminster in 1947, migrated to the bush town of Prince George with his family in 1952. The boom and bust fifties and sixties of Prince George gave him a keen eye and open heart for the characters of the logging towns, construction camps and the bush-shack families. He worked at sixty-five different jobs in several fields, before becoming the professional artist Laughing Hand.
