Prime Beef is available at some local supermarkets...Now

The Wall Street Journal had a story last Wednesday that Costco and some other supermarkets are getting in some prime grade beef because of the troubles the high end steak houses are having with declining sales.
 
The meat has to go someplace.  So, if the steakhouses are buying less of it, I guess Costco amongst others, is there to pick up the slack.  The story quotes several customers and how much they have enjoyed the prime grade meat..meat they they could not afford to experience at the steakhouses.  Meat they have not seen before in their supermarket.
 
I haven't seen any of it at our Publix...yet.

    We 've bought quitea bit of prime at Costco and at our local produce market which has a thriving ethnic meat counter.  They really upgraded in the last year or so and now we get asome great steaks there also!

    We have had prime steaks at our Publix here in St. Petersburg for almost a year now.

    I've been buying prime beef from the Italian specialty store near me for years (when I've been willing to splurge I've gotten dry-aged prime from them), and the Giant Eagle supermarkets here have been selling it since they opened a few years ago. Giant Eagle also sells Wagyu beef.

    John - If you go on the Publix website and access the comments area, they will get back to you ..They always do.  I have had many questions answered with personal calls from my Store Manager.  The on-line comments are forwarded to their attention.
     
    Why not ask them about prime beef for your store?  You will definitely get a personal call from the local store manager.  Now whether he will get it in for you or not, that's another story.  But he may shed some light on why it's available to rich folks like Ribdog and not us!  
     
    Ribdog can't be the only wealthy person they think they can sell high end meat cuts to!

    I've been able to buy prime and also wagyu beef at my local Kings supermarket for about two years. I really like the convenience.

    Beef bought at a supermarket here, is less than a waste of time.
    You look in the fridge and all they have is steaks (most of them) sliced an inch or two thick, that isn't steak, but they DO want NZ$9.99 a kilo for it.
    All our best steak goes overseas.
