Never happening. They don't have any delivery. An experiment with a messenger service fell through.

Exhibit A: I used to pay $14 per lb for baby salmon fillet at the most popular fish store in BP (I don't like naming names). This week I paid $8 in Bingo. Fresh and good quality.
IMHO you can't compare the fish there to other places fish!
We cooked 2/4 peices, couldn't finish them and threw out the other 2 peices, Defiantly not grade A fish

I was happy with mine. Not the exact same quality, but not willing to pay 75% more. I don't drive a Lexus either.

Heard from a few people that its indeed from lessor quality, the fish fall apart during cooking/serving etc

Exhibit B: Pesach cakes and cookies started to cost a small fortune. They are really really cheap in Bingo. At least 50% cheaper. They do many things private label from the same companies.

Again, same issue with the distributors, they give Bingo an upper hand by giving it to the for cheaper then the other store. This is the reason all the stores are upset, not for their sales etc, but the fact that they get cheaper wholesale

They got cheaper because they buy much more.
One example: Bingo sold countless pallets of chocolate before Purim. They were selling top brands for 30% cheaper.
They might have sold more chocolate than all local groceries combined.
They also have leverage because they are reportedly exploring more locations. Their buying power can double and triple.

The Pesach stuff is all private label. Which other store can do that?

Not quite so, but they do have a unique buying power, that's way you won't find there many brands, like: Tuv Tamm, Meal Mart, Kleins Ice Cream and so on and on

Exhibit C: I was never in Costco, but where else can you get good quality 800 plastic soup bowls for $13 and 1,200 plastic cups for $7?
Not in Costco, for those items!

It always seems to me that disposable cutlery and tableware are much cheaper in jewish stores

They are still fighting some. Absolutely. They aren't looking to sell those that won't let them use the same strategy with their brand. If they grow big enough, more brands will fold. We'll see.

They are all local heimish brands I think. They somehow never break into the general market.

Major brands are manufactured in USA vs these I would assume are from China. (some I know firsthand the importer)
