It may sound like a simple task, but it’s not easy ordering meat at the grocery store. In fact, it can be confusing. Here’s some helpful tips for getting the meat that you want.
Stand in Line and Browse Through the Selection
Most delis display the meats that are available on a board. The price is usually listed next to the meat, and it usually represents the value per pound of meat or per cut of meat. Decide which meat you are going to buy and determine how much you want.
Ask the Clerk for the Cut of Meat You Want
When the clerk arrives, tell him or her what you want. Simply give the name of the meat and how much you want. For example, ‘a pound of goat meat.’ The clerk may ask for clarification. For example ‘chops or shoulder?’ Be prepared to answer.
If you have the same order as you did the last time you shopped at the deli, then you can easily place your meat order without the clerk asking for clarification. You could also make arrangements to have your regular order prepared on a regular basis. All you have to do is pick your goat order on the day that it is prepared.
Wait for the Meat and Pay the Clerk
After placing your order, you can watch the clerk slice the meat or go to another part of the grocery store to purchase other items. Your meat order should be ready in a few minutes. When it’s ready, take the meat to the checkout counter and pay. it should be wrapped in paper. The clerk may have written the price and the amount of meat that you bought.
