Here is the domain name registration for the KosherMeatStore
. The ownership is listed as Shtetel, Inc., the domain name was created on May 9, 2009, – six months after Agriprocessors filed for bankruptcy protection. The the administrative and technical contact is listed a Dovid Rubashkin:
Who lives here?
Eight people live at 660 Eastern Parkway

The KosherMeatStore sells fresh meat and poultry under several kosher supervisions: Lubavitch, Supreme (Rabbi Wiessmandl), OU and Debretzin. All but Debretzin were produced at Agriprocessors and continue to be produced at Agri Star, Agriprocessors' successor. Debretzin has a small but loyal customer base in Borough Park, Brooklyn.
