About time this store got a thread.

Great revolution. DD MS worthy deals every week. Some items are sick cheap. Their seasonal sales are amazing.

I'm not crying for the groceries. Bingo proves that some prices are only 30-50% more expensive on regular items (not sale items) in many stores because they can.

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.

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.

You're comparing a fish store and a supermarket. It's more so unusual to find salmon at that price BP supermarkets.

Can't remember when was the last time I bought Salmon fillet retail (and since we buy at wholesale prices, it's quite a staple in our kitchen).

Last time I went to Bingo, I just picked up some Salmon steak, just to stick in the oven for a quick supper. IIRC was $5.99/lb.

They actually carry a higher quality private label 9" plastic plates, than what's sold elsewhere. It's not always the price, but the overall value.

These are just their ridiculous seasonal sales. The every-day items are 30-50% cheaper on a lot of stuff and 20% pretty much guaranteed.

They are selling silver foil, both brand name and private label for lower than I've ever seen anywhere even online.

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.

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.

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

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.

IIRC it was $5.99/lb

I usually pay anywhere from $5.29-$7.49/lb for Salmon FILET at Jetro. I don't buy whole salmon there (from which the steaks are made) but from what I recall seeing, prices for that are around $1.50-$2.00 less than the filet prices per lb.

Did you take a picture of the $14.99 sign? If you didn't, how do we (or you) know it's true? We have a picture posted of it being $9.99.

Sounds like having door buster specials is a common strategy there.

Recommendation: watch the cash register as your items are being rung up, especially if non-barcode items such as fruits and vegetables. I bought tomatoes and was charged more than double the price because the cashier entered the code for sweet peas. Luckily it was a small list and I noticed it while looking at the receipt in the elevator. Had to waste time to get it adjusted.

That's why the game their playing isn't fair. To offer stuff at below profitable levels just because you have deep pockets isn't fair. The hate that's going around against the local grocers as if they're ripping off their customers is misplaced.

I said it in the past and I'll say it again. The prices will be going up it's a gimmick they successfully did in Israel too, unbelievable prices in the beginning and then continously raise the price to profitable levels.
It is illegal to lower prices below cost in order to put competition out of business, and in a limited (small) market you can actually get in trouble for this (because in order to be charged you need very clear results of the actions, and here if other stores close down, we will have clear results). I hope they know what they're doing.

Seems very unlikely that they could actually be charged with anti trust violations

"Predatory pricing practices may result in antitrust claims of monopolization or attempts to monopolize. Businesses with dominant or substantial market shares are more vulnerable to antitrust claims. However, because the antitrust laws are ultimately intended to benefit consumers, and discounting results in at least short-term net benefit to consumers, the U.S. Supreme Court has set high hurdles to antitrust claims based on a predatory pricing theory. The Court requires plaintiffs to show a likelihood that the pricing practices will affect not only rivals but also competition in the market as a whole, in order to establish that there is a substantial probability of success of the attempt to monopolize.[4] If there is a likelihood that market entrants will prevent the predator from recouping its investment through supra competitive pricing, then there is no probability of success and the antitrust claim would fail. In addition, the Court established that for prices to be predatory, they must be below the seller's cost."

$1.89 schmerling bars are probably below cost of the bars, the shipping, including the employees time to unload, to set up, to pay cashiers, pay managers, electricity bills, salaries, insurance bills, building rent fees, etc.... if you add up all those costs together.

On the other hand, the $1.89 isn't going to prevent most of us from buying 10 bars at KRM or BP for $2.29.
It's not a reason to go to Bingo until you add up all of the savings and one-stop shopping benefits. Still impressed by the fruits and vegetable pricing and selection.

They also had pre-cut fruits and vegetables. And p'tcha. Where else can you buy 4 diff types of p'tcha?

Even if not below cost, competing on price is a losing proposition. A profit margin is necessary for success. If one runs an extremely efficient operation, they might be able to reduce margins and still succeed, but that's a dangerous game to play, and one needs another strategy (such as shifting some costs to suppliers in various ways, like Costco and Walmart do with returns, and fines for failure to comply with their specifications of doing business with them).

i don't think that it would make sense for KRM to boycott a big company because:
1) Those products still bring in profits for KRM

better to shop during business hours (for those who work/self-employed). I was first surprised to see so many men shopping there, then I realized that many ladies don't drive their household's cars, so they come in the evenings with their husbands who drive them (or a car service).
Probably at 10:00 am it's less crowded and busy. Try tomorrow morning, as it's Wednesday. Thursday and Friday will be packed.

I was there around 2pm today. Quite manageable. I actually got more of my Pesach shopping done than I expected to.

Some items had misleading or missing prices (clear plastic plates and bowls had a price which I understood to be a case price, but was actually a unit price). Plastic bowls and plates by the case Bingo brand (as opposed to BluShine or Basix brands which are sold in bags of 125) didn't have a price listed.

I liked finding oil under supervision of בד״ץ עדה החרדית ירושלים.

When I was mostly done, I had my son wait on line, while I got some small items here and there. Overall was quite an efficient shopping experience. They didn't have EVERYTHING I would buy for Pesach. But definitely saved me trips (and probably money).

their aisles are wider than any other NY store that I've seen. Can probably fit 3 carts side by side in some of the aisles. Smooth, clean floors and organized shelves. (But that was 2 wks before purim). THey'll be back to the shelving in 10 days, i'm sure.

I'll never forget when we went Pesach shopping about 15 years ago in KRM, we got to the line with about 7-8 people ahead of us - an easy hour+ until our turn, by the time we were third in line this guy came over and asked if he can cut in front of us since he only had few items, naturally we said yes, he left the cart with his Son and proceeded to overfill it and bring another overflowing cart. The Chutzpa of some people!!!

Even if Mehadrin sells it to Bingo for the same price that they sell it to other stores, Bingo can (& should if they stick to their motto) sell it for cheaper then other groceries (& make less on each item, but sell more. Quantity vs quality)

For example Bingo gets golden flow milk for the same $2.40 that all other groceries get it, but all groceries charge a minimum​ of $2.79, while Bingo sells it for $2.49, making a smaller profit, but selling more.

It's only due to the pressure from Mehadrin that Bingo shouldn't be cheaper then other groceries.

But no chance that the FTC gets involved from an antitrust perspective, as the kosher market is just a small segment. There a plenty of wine companies out there, etc. etc. etc. The fact that the Herzog clan controls the kosher wine market (and through other subsidiaries such as Medek, etc. try to control other markets) probably doesn't reach the FTC antitrust radar screen.

I recall when Kedem first branched off into Haddar's territory (IIRC it was the Geffen brand that they started with). The owner of Haddar at the time got so upset, he tried to go into the wine business in retaliation (and IIRC he claimed that only his mevushal wine is mevushal according to all shittos, while Kedem wines are mevushal by pasteurization which some opinions don't accept). Well, we all know how that ended. I doubt anyone even remembers what brand name he used (I don't).

they didn't make up. It was a hostile takeover. On a side note Hadar grape juice ceased to exist for a few years until Welch's made its debut last year. In a brilliant buisness decision, kedem decided not to compete with their own "premium" product but rather brought back out Hadar to compete with Welch's. In the end they lowered the price on the kedem brand also to as low as $2 per 64oz bottle.

But Osem is not something they would be importing to Israel.
Right, but even though they only have one store (currently) in the US, I wouldn't put it beyond them to start their own import where they believe it makes sense for them. In Israel they were in a fight with Osem for a while, and were selling Osem products branded for the Arab market, bypassing whatever standard distribution channel exists there.

But Osem is not something they would be importing to Israel.

it looked like they brought Osem direct from Israel to Bingo when I was there. 10+ feet of an aisle had the top 2 shelves full of cases of Osem mini-mandlach, and the bottom 2 shelves, also 10+ feet full of their "BluPantry" mini-mandlach (cheaper). Bought a few of both brands to compare -- very good.

From what I understand is their shipping things to Israel then bringing it back thus bypassing exclusive distribution rights...
What they did with haolam was buy 20000 pieces of American cheese to be delivered through the year and paid in full upfront.. they couldn't refuse the prices he insisted on.. but they have no intention of doing so in the future...

got it. Is there a specific relationship with Bingo and Osem? What about other brands, etc...?

I don't know if they have a specific relationship, but they are big enough (in Israel) to import things on their own, rather than rely on distributors.
I heard that the fight Osem had with other ad, was specifically Bingo related, because Bingo bypassed Osem USA, & they imported themselves.

After Chanukah materna that belongs to Osem was on sale in all Israeli chain stores for 30 NIS (instead of 50-60), & Osher ad didn't have it on sale.

I heard this with another distributor, that he sold their products below their retail price, and they checked and saw the barcode/routing numbers that it was from Israel. They warned him of he does this again, they won't sell to Osher Ad anymore

What a shame... The distributers think that we Americans need to pay more.
The company (let's say Osem) makes 50 on each item they sell to Osher ad, so why do they think that items that they sell for the American market they need to make $1 on????? (If they wouldn't make more, then it wouldn't bother them that Bingo ships it themselves)

Wrong.

1. The fillet sold by Jetro/Restaurant Depot comes WITH scales. AFAIK that's sufficient.

2. Paging @TimT we've discussed the color issue at length a while ago on the Kashrush master thread IINM, and after reading the sources quoted there, it does seem like the color is a siman muvhak. There's only one non-kosher fish (can't recall what it is at the moment) that could get that color, but that fish is naturally larger, and at the size of salmon would not be edible (or commercially viable).

You are understanding. When you buy farmed salmon it is orange. When not fed an orange rich diet the flesh will not be orange but for that reason they do feed it such a diet. Being a naturally orange fish it absorbs it and therefore has Orange flesh.

all salmon gets its pink color from its food. It's the beta carotene. They have tried feeding carotenoids to other species but the pink color didn't take.

It's a restaurant/grocery wholesaler. You need to have a resale or tax-exempt certificate in order to shop there (though they don't put a person's name on the card, only business name). It's definitely not a retail shopping experience.

I go there mostly for salmon fillet, pint and quart disposable plastic containers, better quality disposable spoons and forks in bulk, bulk frozen fruit, and before Pesach for some fresh fruit and vegetable shopping (when I'm there anyways year round, I might pick up something.

Bought cotton from their store in Geulah last week for $14-15 + Ashkenaz surcharge and undershirt for $18. So wool for $20 is great price.

Good luck making sure of that. In the US, companies are not required to list mustard in the ingredients, because the FDA feels that allergy to mustard is not common enough. In Europe, it is required to list mustard, because it is an allergen with deadly consequences.

Chances are the mayo you have used all your life includes mustard

Say what? That's not correct. If mustard oil is one of the ingredients they are allowed to label it as vegetable oil. If mustard seed is one of the ingredients they are allowed to say spices or natural flavors.

Bingo effect is working; yossi's fish store on 13th Ave between 53 & 54, has fillet salmon for $8.19! That's only .20 more then bingo.
$5.79/lb this week at Jetro bulk price (less than a case is usually .40-.50 more).

Not even close, they're super expensive on meat and chicken. (GG, evergreen and seasons already undercut their prices on that, it has to do with "kashrus"). As far as Groceries, they're not the cheapest place to shop...

That definitely adds to the price etc but the reason for them carrying that itself comes from a kashrus standpoint nothing to do with quality or any other pros and cons...
I'll have to taste the flanken... Is it priced well in general or relative to their prices?

How many pounds is a bulk case?
Title: Re: Bingo wholesale club in Brooklyn
Post by: ExGingi on October 24, 2017, 02:58:53 PM
How many pounds is a bulk case?
Anywhere between 20 and 40, depending on what supplier they get on any given day. It's usually anywhere between 7 and 12 sides per case. The lower count being for larger fish (4-5 lbs per side) and the higher count for smaller fish (3-4 lbs per side). And while the labels on each case often have the count in addition to the total weight, I have found the count on the label to be wrong many times (especially with larger fish).

I think they know what theyre doing. Osher Ad is very successful in Israel. They sell stuff thats not just geared to frum community. One item stood out to me on my visit. Non-CY Wacky Mac. And there were other items.
Have you been there? Chinese and muslims shop there too.
Imo Israeli ppl are much more price sensitive than Americans, so there are a limited amount of frum people that will shop in such a store, Costco will always be cheaper then him , so hes not going to get theyre crowd

While I don't think any of the poskim/mefarshim mention malchus in relation to the kittel, there are different minhagim/psakim pertaining to shana rishona and aveilus that reveal 2 potential reasons for wearing a kittel at the seder: to remember yom hamisa and temper the simcha of the seder, or to be like malachei hashares and add simcha. According to the first reason, it makes no sense to have a fancy kittel, while according to the second reason it depends.

In Israel it's more a wholesale club than anywhere else they have. Large stores, larger packages, fewer choices and good prices.  It's somewhere between a regular supermarket and a wholesale club in my opinion.

Because he holds like the second tzad.

ETA: Scratch that. He says explicitly that an aveil can wear a kittel on yom kippur. He adds that there's a minhag to make a silver or gold atara on a chosson's kittel because it will be worn on yom kippur and pesach - but he doesn't really explain how those 2 things fit together.

Looked it up, he doesn't explain exactly how it's connected, but I can hear that once it's worn on y"k and at the Seder for whatever reason, now it's considered a Yom tov beged. Look at the elef lamateh there. He has a long arichus

Why should it come collapsing? I would imagine that even if they don't sell the needed tickets to get the prices they are selling for they will eat the loss. It wouldn't be worth it for them to let it just collapse and they should be able to absorb it.

The CASH only is a little concerning
Cash shouldn't be concern because a business like this won't take away your money they will not ruin there name.

Probably wanna save on the processing fees

My concern no seats assignment and the chicken house on the flight.

My 2 cents
A few people having to miss the flight for medical reasons or any other legitimate refund reason, I doubt theres gonna be who to talk to there ITS A GROCERY STORE!
You have no cc proof, etc so no recourse against the airline
And bingo name not gonna get ruined if a few people are upset

+1

I don't think this collapses. As pointed out above, they bought TK bulk fares. Would be interesting to know booking codes, or if upgradable (I doubt it). Not sure I would want to be on those flights, I can easily see the check-in lines look like Bingo check-out lines at the busiest times.

How many people would dispute a grocery charge? There's usually no single item there which is that expensive. If there's a problem a customer is likely to go to customer service and try to resolve the issue with specific item (if at all). This is a single charge of $699 where things can go wrong and Bingo has no control.

This way actually makes more sense. If the sale price is applicable to 1 item, just list it as x each. If it's only applicable to multiples, list it that way. The way all the supermarkets do it here is actually backward. Now you can argue about whether they should have sales that require volume, but they certainly wouldn't be the only industry to do it.

Context is not that difficult.

As far as I can tell, people are complaining about Bingo listing sale pricing for say 2 yogurts, and only applying it when you buy 2, not 1 (or when you buy 3, applying sale to 2, and regular to one). This is because pretty much every other grocery/supermarket will apply the sale price to even 1 item. I'm saying that the Bingo way stays in line with the actual wording of the sale, while the grocery/supermarket way doesn't. Is it better for the consumer for the sale to apply the same way no matter how you buy? Sure. But then just market/describe it appropriately.

Though one might expect that it is reasonable not to charge sale price if you only buy one of the two, but if you buy more than two, one would expect to get sale price, and not have to get an even number of items. If those are the terms they should clearly state that sale price applies only to even number of items. Otherwise one could also argue that any amount over two doesn't qualify, as the ad/sign only says that sale price applies to 2.

I disagree. Obviously it depends on the actual wording, but think of electronics for example. If there's a discount for buying 2, often it's done in such a way that the discount only gets deducted for each pair. Why should this be any different? You can of course set something up where the sale price per item applies to any quantity above a minimum number, but I don't see that being described in grocery sales generally.
Stores generally write MUST BUY 2
Right, but that's only when they want the deal to only apply to 2 or more, or whatever. Generally they write things like 5 for $1, even if what it really means is $.20 each. Why not just write that?

Especially on the watching the cashier and checking the receipt. On a recent trip to Bingo I got charged $23.99 (+tax) for an item I didn't buy. I've had in the past where a cashier entered the wrong code for some produce I took, that resulted in being charged for a more expensive item.

They are active already.
Scan as you Shop, when your done they pull up your account at a separate register and you pay for it there.
You need to have your membership card to be able to get a scanner
I really love them bought 30 cartons of eggs it took 24 seconds to scan 30 cartons, was amazing.
  Really a breeze don't have to sit there emptying my cart to bag them while I could just bag them straight into bags.

I tried the scanners today, was very happy, just 2 complaints.
1) I bought stuff in the nut factory, & in the quantity on the scanner it listed 1, even though I only had 0.21, could be by the register it will come up as 0.21, but I deleted it from the scanner, & had it ringed up manually by the register.
2) looks like the scanner tells the cashier to double check specific items, so the cashier had to take out stuff from the bottom of my box, & it just made a message of all the contents

I think the cashier digs to the bottom to scan random items as that where someone stealing stuff would put the stuff he didnt scan.

   Was just in the store yesterday, had the same question when scanning my nuts and candy, I bought four five different items from the nuts and Candy section and when scanning with the app it gave only the base price per pound.
I kept in mind all the prices of those items and after having all my items rang up at the register,(meaning after I gave my membership card and all my items came up on the register screen) I saw that it came off or rather came up exactly what the item said on the bag not what the scanner said per pound.
  Yes that turns off people they should definitely have a better system in place for that not that it's per pound.

To answer your second question, no they do not have to dig to the bottom of the box, but as answered above they want to make sure you didn't hide items you don't want to pay for on the bottom hence the reason for her rummaging to the bottom of the box.
   It's really like any store you go to Walmart for example, or better example you go to Wegmans and they trust you to put in the amount of candy or nuts in the bags and weigh it, not that you added more after you weighed it , meaning after you printed the price label already.
  Or in Walmart when scanning your items out or home Depot or Lowe's, they are trusting you that you're scanning each item and not taking advantage and stealing.
   Yes if you want to steal and buy 15 of each item and only pay for 10 of them they're not going to catch you on that most probably,even in Bingo they can scan your products from today till tomorrow if you took 15 of them they could scan it and see that it's on the receipt they don't know that you took 15 they assume you took only 10 as your receipt or the scanner shows only 10.

   The whole system is based on trust.
 Yes that's one convenient thing people pack it as they shop and then when you come to the register they unpack your box LOL.

boxes are more expensive then bags, stored would give it for free because generally bulk buyers opt to use boxes so its worth taking the hit, now that shoppers would face free box or costly junky bags everyone would opt for free box delivered to your door for a loaf of bread, but not if they gotta pay regardless you would take the cheaper option

 Is there one specific item your looking for?
Are they only letting in 10 at a time ?

Not while I was there, yesterday it was a mad house, bumper to bumper.
 While today the store was a bit less crowded and they gave out gloves like KRM did for everyone who came into the store.
 Now the gloves help up to an extent, since they don't offer Purell and or a sink and soap before you come in they want you to put on a pair of gloves, now for the germs that was on your hand before you came in that pair of gloves can help for, but as far as the germs and dirt that you collect in the store the gloves are meaningless, one person sneezes and it goes all over the products and then you touch the item with your glove and then you take out your phone and make some phone calls... you know where I'm heading.
 When your wearing gloves it's a reminder don't touch your face and be more cautious VS without the glove you don't have a constant reminder to be more cautious.

   And it's about time bingo got rid of all the open SHUK styled nuts and spices, they pre-packed lots of the nuts and all the spices are covered so noone does a sneeze job on it. As well as the candy,olives and everything else that was exposed is now covered.
 From day one all the nuts and spices should have been covered and one who would like to take should lift the cover and remove what ever amount you would like to purchase.
     

   While the only store I saw limiting how many people are allowed at once was costco, letting only 50 or so ppl in the store at once, meaning while people left they allowed more ppl to enter and shop. Was really spacious and enjoyable to shop.(i wish it wasn't in this situation that I had to enjoy my costco shopping.)
 Eggs at $2.79, Potatoes at $4.59 a 5LB bag... and chicken if avlb for a bit more as well.

I was there on Saturday night at 2 a.m., when I got there, there were no lines by the time I left at 3:15 there were only maybe 5 or 6 registers open and there were lines of people on top of each other, also half the people in the store were not wearing masks or gloves.

 At first I thought it was safety precautions due to CoVid-19, then I read further and see it's another one of bingos string attached ads!

 Well I guess that ad works well during these times, as you'll want to avoid touching something that hundreds of people touched!
   On this topic ,only at Costco do you see the same putz wiping down all 100 wagons with the same disinfectant wipe! Spreading the germs from one wagon to the next!

Bingo posted their sales on Telegram. However it's difficult (if at all possible) to zoom in to see the particular details of the matzos.
If anyone is in the BP location this week and wouldn't mind snapping a photo (that's HD enough to make the words on the box legible) of the matzos they're selling this year, I (and surely others too) would greatly appreciate it.
TIA!!

I think they're a little off the beat, a few days before pesach (or maybe even chol hamoed) no one is running to the grocery out of breath to buy afikoman presents, they were out of schmerlings, big containers, potato starch.... They were busy stocking up with afikoman....
