Just heard that DiBruno's in Center City Philly is now carrying Glatt kosher steaks, ground beef, hamburger patties and organic boneless chicken breast. It's a trial for them, so if you're interested, buy some meat so they keep stocking it.

        They have been doing this for over a year. At first they had a great selection, but as the manager said, "everyone says thank you, thank you, but they don't buy." So now the selection is not as big. Thank you.

          I had the same response when I spoke with the managers, Jason and Will. They lost thousands of dollars the last two times they stocked kosher meat, so they are nervous. We went in and bought even though we didn't need it that week to show support. It would be REALLY convenient if DiBrunos carries kosher meat, and there are plenty of kosher people around, so I think the only problem is getting the word out. If they can consistently carry it people will come. The problem is when they stop and start again and people don't know what to expect. Thanks barryg for starting this thread!

            Sadly the location is really poor for me. IF they were at RTM I wiuld check them out and buy when i could. I am within FEET of RTM at least twice a week and often shop there. Perhaps in the fall/winter I can get to their "kosher" location.
