stand alone cheese
« on: March 19, 2020, 07:33:54 PM »
walked by today and saw they're taking online orders only -- no in-store hangouts. better safe than sorry, and please do continue to patronize them.

Did they post a menu of their cheeses/or goodies on line.  I buy something different each time I go!

They have a google form that you can complete--it has cheese descriptions, if I remember correctly. I think I saw it on their instagram?

Stand alone cheese is the perfect name for a claustrophobic cheese shop that doesn't have space for people to stand six feet apart

I just checked their online order form. Wow! They have a huge selection, and it's not just cheese. You can also get things like salami, smoked salmon and other fish, whole milk, plain yogurt, olives, bread. And it's a contactless pickup - you wave from outside and they bring out your order (that you previously placed online).

I'm definitely going to try it.

i did it yesterday. super-smooth process. clicked my choices on the order form and got the confirmation on Monday evening. Steffan called an hour before my time window to tell me it was ready (all items i asked for were as requested), and ran my credit card. walked over, the stuff was handed out the door, and i was on my way.

for what it's worth, they're doing good business during this period of limbo. that's reassuring.

Very reassuring, both from the standpoint of their business success and our access to food. It's becoming impossible to get grocery delivery from the supermarkets now--all slots filled at all stores yesterday, and you can't even place an order for a week from now--and this is such a great option. Contactless, outdoor pickup with no need to go into a store and stand in a line, and with many different items available. I hope they can keep up with demand, which I'm sure will be increasing for them.

Ordered twice from them in the past couple of weeks. As dssjh says, smooth ordering and pick-up process. And yes, they have other products like bread, olives, jarred pickles etc.

Made a huge order about a week ago and plan to make another soon. So happy this is a success for them.

I'm a big foodie as you can tell from my username. I'm new tot he world of fine cheese though.

I want to order something from Stand Alone Cheese. Preferably enough to make 2 excellent sandwiches and have some extra cheese left over.

Anybody have any recommendations?
