Who likes STEAK? Read on ...

This is going to sound weird but for those of you who like steak go to Shoppers Drug Mart to buy it, yes Shoppers Drug Mart *well only the ones that sell frozen foods* I was at Shoppers yesterday with my wife to buy soap and stuff and I went down the side isle and noticed some steaks, 100% Canadian Beef Sirlion Steaks ON SALE for $7.99 *regular price is $12.99* for 3 nice sized steaks which are individually vacuum sealed. All I can say is WOW! these are the best steaks I ever bought, so juicy and tender and what a deal at $7.99 for 3. I usually buy my steaks at Fortino's and pay $6.00 each for a steak and they don't even come close to these ones ... I'm going back to buy some more.

Cheers!

Shoppers Drug mart sells frozen foods? I don't think I have even been on one that does.
What Shoppers do you go to?

Hey Gary ... most new ones sell frozen foods, not a lot but there is a section with a few freezers which have frozen pizza's etc. and these steaks which are in a square like box. I shop at the one in Brampton.

I don't know about buying meat from a drug store. Kind of scares me.

Personally, I never buy my meat from a grocery store. we prefer to buy it from a butcher who has the best meat I have ever tasted. Worth the extra price. The chicken at the grocery store is disgusting compared to the free range chicken we get from our butcher.

Besides, I don't know what quality of meat I am getting at a grocery store, let alone Shoppers with all of the hormones that get pumped into the animals so they produce faster. At least at my butcher I know where the meat comes from and the quality of the meat.

I too now buy our meat from a friendly neighbourhood butcher. When the family was all home, we used to buy half a beef from a farmer we knew.

I would hesitate to buy meat from Shopper Drug Mart as well. I would tend to question why they are able to sell it so cheap...?

I agree with MaxPower - go to your nearby butcher and support the smaller businesses. It will cost a little more but the quality is so much better. I also feel it's important to support your local farmers whenever possible.

I must say...a steak sure does sound good right now.
