For more than 50 years, we've been providing our Madison Avenue butcher shop customers
with old-fashioned, over-the-counter, personalized service—sharing recipes,
tips, and techniques, recommending cuts, and chatting about what's new and exceptional.
And, when we started our online butcher shop at lobels.com, one of our biggest challenges
was to translate the Lobel's standard of customer service to our new virtual environment
so every customer would feel as if they'd just walked into our shop on Madison Ave.
With that in mind, we've created a new communications center on our Web site, called

What You'll Find on the Lobel's Blackboard
You'll find an always-current list of upcoming Holiday Ordering Deadlines here,
as well as news items about Lobel's.
When a new shipment of something delicious arrives, we'll post it on the Blackboard—you'll
be the first to know.
Available for Pre-Order
From time to time, we may be temporarily sold out of a specific item. The "Available
for Pre-Order" section of the Blackboard will fill you in on what products can be
ordered in advance. That is, order now and when the shipment arrives at our door,
we'll ship it to your door. Check the Blackboard often for items that are on pre-order
and be sure to reserve yours first!
Back in Stock
When our popular items come back in stock and are available to order, we'll give
you first notice on the Blackboard.
Our special orders are an exciting addition to our existing product lines. Special
order items include seasonal and limited availability items—they could range
from organic poultry and game birds to grass-fed beef, from organic pork to pasture-raised
veal. The possibilities are endless! Each special order item will only be available
for a short time on a pre-order basis—so be certain to check back often.
From the very beginning, we have dedicated Lobel's of New York to providing our
customers with the freshest and finest meat and specialty products available anywhere,
at any price—the best of the best. So we often introduce new products—sometimes
inspired by customer feedback. In the months ahead, look for new product lines or

And sometimes, we get ideas from our contacts with artisanal producers—small
family-run farms and cooperatives that have highest-quality, but low-quantity or
limited-production, meats and poultry. These items may only be available seasonally
or may be geared to a specific farm's production schedules at certain times of the
So, whenever we have brand new products available, we'll put them on the Blackboard
so you can be the first to try the newest and best.
