      So do I. Alas, they're not really "back." Looks like the store is not reopening; they're just distributing fresh meats and their deli meats:

      "They are selling seven tonnes of fresh meat and products a week, and plan to sell another five tonnes per week, manufacturing Perl’s classic salami, hotdogs, pepperoni, turkey and chicken deli slices. They are expanding to major supermarkets – Loblaws, Sobey’s, Metro, Fortino's and Costco."

          What difference does it make, if you like the products you will be able to buy them now. Sounds like good news to me.

            But you can't get their prepared foods or their gefilte fish @ the supermarket.

              I didn't shop at Perl's for their salami. I shopped there for their prepared foods like gefilte fish (loved the one they had in a jar), potato kugel, cholent,...

                Exactly! Those are the types of things I shopped for as well...kugel, homemade sweet gefilte fish, etc.
