Marlon's Meats has a new location

For all of you suggesting on other posts that they have made a midnight dash and disappeared, might I suggest to you all to walk down the street to the former Alex Farms Cheese store. You will then find out that Marlon has taken over the cheese store and moved his butcher shop into the same space. I'm told the difference in rent made the deal a no brainer.

So for all of you conspiracy theorists, just walk down the street! No one is hiding!

      1. What posts are you talking about? There is one that says the former location had a "for lease" sign in the window, nobody said they went out of business.

          Yeah. Most people understand that he's a scam artist. No big deal.

        2. Cool. Maybe he'll sell coupons to promote the new location.

          1. Why would anyone ever spend there money there given what we know? There are far too many honest hard working businesses to spend your money in to support a well documented scam artist.

              I have no idea what you're talking about. Can you explain?

                They used to be called The Butchers. They sold hundred's of thousand dollars worth of "group buy" vouchers from various sites and a lot of customers were not able to redeem them. Some people said he was just incompetent, others believe it to be fraud. He was never held accountable by anyone in the end.

                  Thanks ylsf. I wasn't aware of that.

                    I blame him, Buytopia, TeamBuy and other sites who participated with him - for the growth and collapse of the Group Coupon Deal sites in Toronto, and maybe even North America.

                    Greed led to this bubble bursting, as there were nearly a 100 of these sites open at the peak.
