If you have an unused BlackBerry handset squirreled away somewhere, you can actually trade it in for two sausages from a Canadian butcher shop. One of the owners of the Fore Quarter Butcher Shop in Kitchener, Colby Lemoine, has a vision of lining the walls of his store with older BlackBerry handsets. As a result, he is offering two free sausages to those who hand over an older 'Berry model. And if the BlackBerry you trade-in is especially unique or rare, Lemoine says that he might throw in a little steak.
He also says that customers have been drawn to the BlackBerry phones already up on the wall and point out the models they once owned, or remember. The butcher shop is located in Waterloo region, where BlackBerry still has its headquarters, and its Grand Opening will be held tomorrow. The butcher notes that the value of the two sausages is $5, and says "I know that some people might take that as an insult to BlackBerry, but the idea is to pay homage to this history."
