If you are going to deal with Marlons Butchery, Marlin’s Fish Shop, Marlon’s Meats or Marlon’s Fish please note that these names are new brands of The Butchers store in Toronto owned by Marlon Pather.
The Butchers got very bad reputation in 2011 during their campaign on various daily deal sites like Buytopia, Webpiggy, DealTicker, DealGetters, DealFind and Teamsave. They are known for significantly reduced quality of the products and services. They have also unilaterally changed their terms and conditions several times making impossible to redeem coupons. A lot of customers were trying to get refunds from daily deal companies. For detailed information on The Butchers you may refer to these two articles:

As it is stated on the website, Marlons Butchery has been serving the Toronto area for many years… But I could find information about “Marlons Butchery” only at marlonsbutchery.com website. Should I try to search harder? Or is this a brand new business from Marlon Pather and The Butchers?
