where to get inexpensive frozen lobster

Any thoughts on where to get inexpensive frozen lobster? I tried the langostino at Trader Joe's but realized I really need to use lobster. It's expensive at Wegman's and my Costco doesn't have it. I've read that it's supposed to be cheap right now...I'm in Northern VA. Thank you!

  1. I'm guessing that any supermarket should have some kind of lobster in their frozen aisles. Or try an Asian market.

    1. Shoppers Food Warehouse has cryovac bags of frozen lobster claws. Around $20 I think. They're in the freezer bins with the frozen tilapia and King Crab claws.

        Thank you -- I will give Shoppers a try.

      2. Shopper DID sell them but discontinued selling them. Does anyone know where to get the same product in the dmv for the same price?

          1. This is what we used to sell @ Sysco:
            vacuum packed cooked Canadian lobster meat. Not this brand but this is what I'd look for. excellent quality. There are different packs designated by letters; C being claw, T being tail and K for knuckle. You might contact some manufacturers and see if the sell it retail.
