Details are slim, but Illg's Meats - a third-generation German butcher in Bucks County whose wursts have been found on local menus - says it will shut down in early July after more than a half-century.

In an email and on its website, the company store in Chalfont will be open through the week of July 5th (though closed on July 4th). There will two days of clearance sales on July 8th and 9th.

"Thank you for the many years of faithful patronage, you will be greatly missed," the note concluded.

Per Warringtown Township records, the 75-acre plot of land has been sold to developer David Cutler.

I'm hoping to hear back from Ernst or Ernie Illg.
