The spread of the Covid-19 virus has caused us to make a few changes to the way we do business, as I’m sure it has affected the way your life works as well. Hopefully everyone is staying healthy as we work through this. At Usinger’s we have temporarily closed our retail store on Old World Third Street. This is for the protection of our customers and employees as it can get crowded in there. But have no fear our Sausage Kitchen and Smokehouses are busy producing sausages six days a week to keep up on shipments supplying grocery stores that proudly carry our products. You can also order directly from us online at usinger.com. You will find almost all our items in the Deli or Gift Store sections on our website. We will ship anywhere in the continental U.S. and that seems to be one of the preferred ways to receive food these days. Here’s to hoping summer is just around the corner and praying an end to this epidemic is too. Stay well and enjoy eating at home.
On behalf of everyone at Usinger’s let me wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving and joyous holiday season. It’s a special time of year and made better when you can spend it with family and friends. Of course, if you can sneak a little Usinger andouille sausage into the dressing it might even get a little tastier. Seriously, if you’re a fan of our flavorful andouille, you might want to try it. Since our andouille is already cooked, you can just slice/dice and add to the stuffing before putting it in the bird. It’s so good, it’s almost an entrée unto itself. You can substitute other types of sausage like Italian, or Chorizo, but for my palate, andouille is the best.
Also, for anyone who wants to order sausage a la carte from the Usinger Deli for the holidays, you’ve only got a few days left. November 30th will be the last day we process deli orders for pre-holiday delivery. The elves are getting very busy shipping gift boxes in December, and deli orders will be suspended for shipping until after the holidays.
I hope you enjoy the season. And I hope you like the new flat rate shipping for gift boxes we’ve introduced this year. Shipping is always a little more complicated when it involves perishable food products and you don’t have as many options as with other items. We’ve negotiated the best deals we can for this season and hope this works for you. Let us know.
