The Butchers - Big Money Meat

The Butchers has had a whole lot of groupon-like deals as of late. Their most recent is $50 for $150 worth of meat ( To date, they've sold over 1500 of these coupons at webpiggy, so in effect they are selling meat here for which they would have normally taken in $225k, but they are going to get paid maybe $50k at most (since webpiggy probably takes a huge cut of the 75k). This seems to support my opinion that prices there are wildly over-inflated - how else can you do so many deals like this?

I've participated in previous deals there (teamsave I think) and I was blown away by the high prices (and I often shop at Whole Foods). I had bought a coupon which allowed me to buy meat at 1/2 price, but even at 1/2 price I was shocked, for example I bought 12 sausages, and 2 pounds of beef short ribs, the total came to about $70 (cost me about $35 with the deal). Just wondering if anyone else feels the same or if I am missing something? Are there any chowhounders who pay full price there, and if so, what is the draw?
