For the first time in almost 35 years, you won't find either Henry or Bonnie Hoffman behind the counter at Hoffman's Meat Market in Detroit Lakes.


Randy Gravelle, a part-time employee at Hoffman's since 1996, took over the reins of the business last month.

Gravelle is a Detroit Lakes native whose parents, Ann and Earl Gravelle, owned and operated Lakes Processing in Detroit Lakes for more than 25 years.
