    I have not purchased from http://www.igourmet.com/, but I bet others have. I've flagged this post to be moved to a new topic for online shopping where others can see it better than here.

      I used to purchase from iGourmet years ago and most cheeses arrived just fine. I've since opened my own small store and so don't buy cheese online any more but they do have a very good selection. The founders have been importing cheeses for decades.

        I've been buying from them for years -- excellent selection and quality. I love their customer review feature, and they have great specials.

          I order cheese from Igourmet all the time and have only had a problem once. An overly ripe cheese. (It was really bad!) Customer service handled it immediately. No questions asked. I've been very pleased with everything I've ever ordered. They have great sales too!

          (Note: I joined ShopRunner (offered on their site) and have never had to pay more than $4.99 for refrigerated shipping. A great deal considering I got the membership for free!!!)

            I just ordered 2 cheeses from Murray's online.
            I will reply back when I receive my order.

              I've never had any real issues with igourmet.com, and I've been ordering from them for a while now (several years).

              Murray's Online Store is solid also. I've ordered several items, and have received the orders promptly.

              Amazon.com does a pretty good job with their gourmet food deliveries as well, and igourmet.com has an Amazon storefront also.

                I've been ordering cheeses from igourmet for quite a few years now. Have NEVER been disappointed. Quality, prices, packaging, shipping, etc., have always been above bar.

                    Today, Serious Eats ran an interesting article with buying sources for online cheese ordering. I had not heard of Arrowine before.
