Surry’s seafood is back
DIXFIELD- Surry’s Seafood Co. is back and they are making a name for themselves throughout the area. The small business has been breathed new life by owner Clinton Bradbury, who also owns multiple other businesses throughout the River Valley.
“It’s one more of our sister family-owned businesses,” noted Bradbury. “You’ll see a lot of networking going on within our businesses as we go along. If you think about it, that’s all any of our area businesses need to do, is network with one another to keep people shopping locally. This area would be boomin’ if we could get people to stay here.”
With Sample Night being every Thursday from 3 p.m. until closing at 6 p.m., the afternoon of the ribbon cutting was hopping. The parking lot was packed with consumers rushing in to see what they would purchase.
The shop looks the same with one exception of a little construction happening in the side room off the kitchen. In the coming weeks you will not only have the choice to sit outside on the picnic tables to enjoy your food, you will be able to sit inside at the 8-10 person restaurant.
Whether you’re looking for raw, cooked or smoked seafood, steak, sausage, fresh produce (from local farms), Maine maple syrup, honey, Maine-made soda or gelato, not to mention their combo specials and the convenience of paying your Dixfield Discount Fuel oil bill; Surry is the place to stop on your way through town.
They have taken their service up a notch and are offering catering and currently provide the Mexico Chicken Coop and Kawanhee Inn in Weld with a weekly supply of seafood. They have plans in the works to get a remote truck to Bethel for Saturday sales and are looking to get permitting to go to Rangeley, too.
Surry Seafood employs six local people you are sure to recognize when you walk through the door, guaranteeing you a friendly, down-home experience.
“If you can’t get it in Rumford,” noted Carrie Bradbury, daughter and co-owner. “You can in Dixfield.”
In the coming months, be sure to look for networking opportunities between Dixfield Discount Fuel, Maine Made Furniture, Premium Specialty Hardwoods, Premium Rental Tools & Equipment, Premium Log Yards, Western Maine Outfitters, Premium Transportation, Premium Firewood, Maine Artisans Gallery and last, but not least, Surry Seafood.
Store hours for the 60 Weld St. business are Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. If you would like to place your order ahead of time, call 562-7004 and you can find them online at www.surryseafood.com.
