Please see below for all information regarding Cheplic Packing and the COVID-19 Pandemic, including our weekly store update.
You will find recent news stories, our COVID-19 updated store hours, our weekly store update and information on how to register and place your order during your visit to the store.
We will also be updating the current status of orders for half and whole sides of beef, pork and lamb.
We will be updating our store status week to week as we continue to maintain safe social distancing practices, in order to ensure the safety of our employees and customers, while continuing to serve our quality products.
Please Note: We are not taking orders by phone or email, due to limited manpower and the current product demand of customers arriving at the store. We are looking into possibilities down the road, but due to the increase in product demand and current manpower, we are not able to offer online ordering or take phone orders at this time.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
Latest Update - Week of May 27th, 2020
Thanks to all of our customers who have come out to the store during the COVID-19 Pandemic. We appreciate everyone's business and patience.
PLEASE NOTE: Please do not send emails to email@example.com. This address is not monitored and all emails are automatically deleted. Please call the store at the number below with any questions.
Our business hours the week of 5-27-2020
Wednesday through Saturday 8AM to 4PM
First and foremost, the Cheplic Family would like to take a minute to send out thoughts and prayers to our long time employee and butcher Nathan Clyde. Nathan suffered a medical condition over the Memorial Day Weekend. He is resting comfortably. Please keep Nathan and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he rests and recovers. We are hoping for a speedy recovery for Nathan.
People have asked if we are going to open the store for walk in business now that Governor Wolf has put us in a "YELLOW" status. We have decided that we will continue to operate the business as we have since the beginning of the pandemic, where you will need to drive to the store, register and receive our text messages until it is your turn to order from your vehicle. We have worked very hard to implement this system, and until we enter a "GREEN" status, we feel this is still the safest way to do business with our customers, and at the same time look out for the health and safety of our customers and our employees. We're sorry if this causes any inconvenience, but this system has been working since we entered the pandemic, and we feel that we need to continue this process until we are sure that we are completely safe from the COVID-19 Carona Virus. Please see our registration process below for more information.
Due to the increased demand for meat products, we have encountered much more traffic over the last several weeks. Our registration cut off time has gone from 1:00 PM to as early as 10:30 AM. We will be updating our automated voice message beginning at 9:30 AM, indicating whether or not we have hit the cutoff for each day's registration.
PLEASE call the store at 724-348-7094 to avoid driving out and not being able to register for the day.
We are doing everything we can to keep our customers informed during these exceptional and unusual circumstances. We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding as we continue to serve our customers and focus on the health and safety of everyone.
George Cheplic, Jason Cheplic and the Cheplic Family.
Cheplic Packing has implemented a registration program upon your arrival. We are following the guidelines set by the CDC during the COVID-19 Pandemic. We feel this program is the safest way to protect our employees and our customers, while continuing to supply quality products.
Cheplic Packing has also implemented an automated voice messaging system. This system is updated before each business day. We are also updating our voice message once per hour, beginning at 11AM, in order to provide information on the current wait time of the customers who have driven to the store and registered that day. Please call the store at 724-348-7094 after 11AM each day, if you would like information on our current customer estimated wait time.
You still need to drive to the store to register for your place in line. We DO NOT take phone registrations due to lack of manpower. We apologize for any inconvenience.
We have been implementing a daily registration cut-off time so that we can service all on site customers by 4PM. Checking the voice message will give you an idea of how many customers are in line, and if the cut-off time has been met. You MUST drive to the store, walk up to the registration tent and register with a Cheplics Representative. As always, please see the link below to download our current item list to help with your order.
Please see our detailed registration instructions below.
PLEASE NOTE: Our COVID-19 Business Hours are:
Wednesday Through Saturday 8AM to 4PM.
• We ask that you park wherever there is a spot available. However, there are 3 spots next to the building designated as “Curbside Pickup” spots. We WILL NOT be allowing people to park there, as these are the spots that are designated for the curbside pickup service we have implemented.
• Upon parking, please proceed to the white registration tent next to the entrance of the building. There, you will register by supplying your name and cell phone number. This is how we will contact you to take your order. If you do not have a cell phone, one of our staff members will accommodate you accordingly.
• PLEASE NOTE: When we are at our busiest, we have seen situations where cars are parked out past the driveway entrance and out on to Mingo Circle. We are doing our best to move our customers through the process as quickly as possible.
• You will receive text messages updating you as you progress through the line. When it is your turn to order, a Cheplics employee will call you so you can place your order over the phone. Please make sure that you do not have unknown numbers blocked. We will not be able to reach you. After 3 attempts, we will move on to the next number in line.
• Upon placing your order, you will then be instructed to pull into spot one, two or three of our “Curbside Pickup” spots. From there, our employee will deliver your order straight to your car and take your payment.
We feel that this is the safest way to serve our customers and at the same time take every precaution to avoid the spread of the COVID-19 Virus.
Current Update as of 4/26/2020
Please see below in our information available for download, we have provided a cut sheet for ordering half or whole sides of beef.
Cut sheets for pork and lamb will be uploaded soon.
PLEASE NOTE: We are currently on an 8 week back order, and unfortunately due to limited manpower and customer demand, at this time we are not able to take additional orders for half and whole sides of beef, pork or lamb. We will update our status of back orders in this section every four weeks, unless time allows us to get caught up on our current back orders, at which time we will update sooner. We are sorry for any inconvenience, but due to manpower and product processing from our suppliers, we are currently unable to keep up with current back orders. We hope to see this alleviate as Pennsylvania begins the process of re-opening the economy.
We apologize in advance and hope that we can get caught up in a timely fashion. Please check back to the website for further updates. Our plan is to update this section of the website every four weeks or sooner depending on how fast we can get caught up with our current back orders.
