Iconic Sausage Shop Closes After 43 Years

After 43 years, an iconic sausage shop in Milwaukee has closed it's doors for good.

Saturday was the last day for the European Homemade Sausage Shop.

The shop has been a staple on Muskego Avenue for quite some time.

People showed up right until the minute the doors closed, to not only shop one last time but to say thank you and goodbye. 

“I was five years old when this place opened, it hit me, hit a lot of people in here. We ran out of meat. We are 15 minutes away from the end of this place. It's just crazy, everybody is just emotional, couldn't be more proud,” said the owners son, Paul Jakubczak.

The shop had been featured on Wisconsin Foodie as well as The History Channel's Meat America.
