Lebanese Olive Oil in Queens

I need this, in large bottles. Shaheen extra virgin olive oil, or the like, imported from Lebanon. Does anyone know the best place to purchase? The penultimate place I bought this was off skillman ave in Sunnyside. They closed. Then at Trade Fair in Astoria. I'd like to buy in quantity, like a case or two. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

      Thanks, MarcInSunnysideGardens.

      I was introduced to this oil by the proprietor of Souk al Shater. He had more at a good price so I bought a case. I miss his old grocery on 43rd Ave. I note in another thread that this is his new location. The old one has become something like 43 Grill.

      The old place had great olives, for cheap. Now on Queens Blvd, he and his family seem focused on prepared foods. We had chicken shawarma and other offerings for dinner, and bought a bunch of desserts. I'm so glad he's still around, I thought he was gone. I miss the old store, tho! Thanks for the tip.
