What has happened to Canned Corned Beef?

I'm not finding it on the shelves of my grocery stores (SFW, Harris Teeter, Safeway, Giant). Any ideas where I might find some?

    I saw cases of Hormel Cormed Beef at COSTCO in Fairfax a while back.

      Gee, it's still around here (Culpeper, VA) in all the grocery stores - Harris Teeter, Safeway, Giant, Martins, WalMart. Maybe ask management - perhaps they moved its location in the stores.

          I see it all the time in Gaint and Safeway. I think it depends on where you live also try the smaller Latino markets

            speaking of latino markets, the one across from whole foods in clarendon has turned into an empanadas restaurant!

              Hmmm... I used to get my chorizo there, it was pretty good. And their butcher cut something that resembled a ribeye that was incredibly tasty, tough, but tasty. Butcher shop is gone then?

                ziv, unless it is still accessible from the side (parking lot entrance)…it doesn't appear that the butcher shop is still there. i didn't pull in, but was just driving by and noticed it was changed. now…thinking back, i'm wondering if i am confusing the gelato shop….i don't think so. i think the market is indeed gone.

                i thought their business was pretty decent there. and restaurants are so dicey to open.

                  I will have to check, gives me a good reason to go back to Clarendon since I avoid it now. As Yogi put it, "Nobody goes there anymore. Its too crowded!"

                    great yogi quote. yes, it is pretty crowded -- esp. on weekends. i have the luxury of going other times. whole foods after work is a total zoo!

                    if the market is gone, at least you can try the empanadas! ;-).

                    i'm loving the trader joe's at the clarendon location!
