A beloved family-run store in the heart of Westphal has been given the green light to expand.

Gateway Meat Market on Highway 7 is a massively popular store that has long line ups on a daily basis for its fresh, affordable food.

Harbour East-Marine Drive Community Council unanimously voted in favour of the expansion Thursday night, that would bring a larger building double the size of the existing one, dozens more staff and a covered pedestrian walkway.

The expansion would also include more on-site storage, a larger processing area, another meat prepping room and more parking.

Former councillor Gloria McClusky was on hand for the hearing and gave her approval.

“I think it’s great, so let’s get’er done.”

What still needs to be ironed out are the impacts to traffic with a functional study in that area.

Gateway opened in April 2008 and has had five separate expansions since.

They currently have a staff of 90 and are open seven days a week.
