CLAUS’ GERMAN SAUSAGE & MEATS, INC. (formerly Klemm’s)

Please watch for upcoming temporary changes to some of our policies and procedures, which we will be implementing to help insure the health of our employees and customers. Everything is changing very quickly right now, and we are also trying to adjust, and are understandably unsure of how long the current situation will last. Effective immediately:

  1. We are limiting sales of our Ground Chuck to 5 pounds per customer. The beef and pork wholesale companies which supply the meat used to make our sausages, lunch meats, and other products, are not necessarily able to provide the items and/or the quantity that we need at the moment, due to the immense demand. Since our supply is uncertain, the final meat products that we have available may change without advance notice. Also, the quantity of ground chuck purchased (up to 5#) for each person will be packaged all together in one package. This limits the amount of meat handling on our part, and allows the customers to get their meat orders more quickly, to minimize personal contact time.
  2. Since our customer sales area is rather small, we are limiting the number of customers inside our store to 2 (TWO) people at one time. As one person leaves, the next person can then enter. Again, this is to prevent too many people from being too close together for any period of time.

There will be more information coming, as everyone is having to adapt at a very rapid pace currently. Also, please be aware that phone lines may be very busy, and messages on our Facebook page will be answered only as time permits. Please do NOT post orders to Facebook, as that would not be possible for us to keep up with. Orders posted online will not be filled. During this time, as always, we appreciate your patience and your business.

In 2013, we celebrated 100 years as a family-owned business!!!  For over a century now, our family has been providing quality meats made on-site weekly, including over 20 different kinds of homemade sausages AND over 40 different types of lunchmeats.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO GPS AND MAPQUEST USERS: If you enter our address into either one of those programs, please enter it as "1845 Shelby Street, Indianapolis, IN 46203." Do NOT enter it as "South" Shelby Street. There is a glitch in both of those programs that will take you over a mile farther south of our store, down to the area of Troy Avenue and Shelby Street, which is the 3000 South block of Shelby Street. There is NO North Shelby Street in Indianapolis, so entering it WITHOUT the "South" will get you here!

Saturdays, 8 am to 3 pm
Closed Sundays & Mondays

We are 3/4 mile SOUTH of the fountain in Fountain Square, on the EAST side of Shelby Street.  We are 1/3 mile NORTH of the intersection of Shelby and Raymond Street, right where you can get on & off of I-65.  That intersection has a stoplight, on one corner is a White Castle, on another corner is a Safeway, the third corner has a BP gas station, and the last corner there has a CVS.  Again, from that intersection, we are 1/3 mile NORTH.  Please watch your speed!  Shelby is only 30 M.P.H.!
