Zaycon Fresh

Well, there goes my super cheap meat source. Zaycon Fresh unexpectedly and abruptly suspended operations yesterday. Their phones are down, their offices are covered, and they're not responding to emails. I have $160 worth of food that won't be delivered, so I'm disputing those credit card charges today and will hopefully receive that back. Now I'll have to find another source for cheap, quality meats. We've gotten fish from Lidl which is pretty cheap and good quality. Their chicken is a good deal as well, but I'd never needed to buy it since Zaycon Fresh was cheaper. Before finding Zaycon Fresh, we used to buy the $20 meat deals from Safeway which comes with family packages of 4 different meats. Then we'd portion it into 2-person meals. Now, I'd probably have to cook the whole thing if we go that route since my brother is with us.

    Well that is disappointing! I do hope you can dispute the charges. They should not get to keep your money if they were unable to deliver the promised goods.

    I hope you can get it worked out! And find a replacement for a meat source. Have you looked into any local butcher shops/suppliers? I used to work at one in Ohio, and we would have great family packs. Now I just buy my meat at Aldi and I'm pickier about it (and try to use less - for both financial and environmental reasons).

    I heard about the big Zaycon kerfuffle. It's left a lot of people in the lurch I never ended up buying from them because I didn't think their prices were all that great. We regularly have sales here that beat their prices on everything but bacon, shrimp, and sausages or I find marked down meats that do. And I found equal pricing on the shrimp.

    I get a much better deal saving up and buying half a beef (you can also get a quarter of a beef from some farmers, you just have to wait until the other 3 quarters are sold) and half a hog every year. You can check craigslist for your surrounding area for grass fed beef or for hogs. Chicken is always on sale somewhere about every six weeks.

    Well, phooey! You never know what is going to up and go out of business anymore.

    I see Chipotle is closing some restaurants. The reason I bring that up is a few months ago my town had a big dispute between neighbors in an area that has lots of retailers on one side of the road, and developers wanted to start tearing down houses and develop on the other side. The dangling carrot for all this -- a new Chipotle. So, I wonder if their plans have fallen through.
