Their branch on Geula has exactly the same stuff, so no need to schlep all the way down there (depends on your location).
I was there a while ago, and they had all the Shabbos stuff.
The one is Geula is NOT fleishigs.

That's a bummer. Why are they closed? (Not that an Israeli institution needs an excuse to close)
