Title: Bingo Wholesale Club Lakewood
Post by: Zevi16 on October 21, 2018, 10:30:00 AM
I donít see a thread for the new bingo opening in Lakewood and I imagine thereíll be lots of deals being posted.
It will be on Route 70 by Home Depot.

Does anyone know whatís the eta of it?

My question is, are the regular Lakewood shoppers going to start shopping here, or are they going to prefer their regular stores that they go to now?
As of past experience it seems Lakewood shoppers donít feel too attached to their neighborhood groceries as GG and co have put everyone out of business.

Why bad? Iím actually looking forward to it.
I wonder if it will have the same pull as Costco does. Go in there to buy 2 things and you somehow walk out with 2 pillows, dash cam, foosball table and electric toothbrush.

Depends on how often you go. Being that I go to Costco min once in 2 weeks I don't buy much extras

I go when Iím bored. Thatís the issue. I have a small family so itís not really necessary for me to go to Costco. For bigger families, the fruit and vegetables are amazing too.

That's exactly it. I started going weekly unless I don't have time. The kids started eating a ton of fruit since

as explained here
Diadvantages include
  • Pack your Bags
  • Limited brand Seletion
  • Check the sale wording
  • Check the sale Date
  • Check the Receipt
  • No delivery

IE
Challa has upc barcode price for 2
when it says 2 for buy 2/4/6/8/10
big yellow sale tag might have exp date of 3 weeks ago....
Most of that sounds like every grocery in Lakewood before GG opened up...

Could be I was spoiled by KRM.

BTW there's a big difference between Costco and bingo, Costco sells bulk, bulk price in bulk packaging, versus bingo would sell you 20 tiny lose clementines for bulk price.
Bulk packaging makes a big difference when it comes to schlep it home.

Sure does. For example a bag of Jazz apples cost over a $1 an apple.
 Pears are delicious so is the plums,peaches,nectarines and pomegranates when they have. 
 You pay for what you get for.(Not cheap the fruits and veggis there.)

Also worth noting that citrus fruits and peppers are imported from Israel on occasion. Big issues with trummah and Mayser.

Looks like the type of place that will have seasonal bargains, unique imports/deals, and may be good for stocking up for the household 1-3x per month.

For regular weekly shopping, possibly the same local Lakewood stores as usual.

While Lakewood costs are different than Brooklyn, I'm not sure how that translates to delivery cost/benefit given Lakewood traffic.

Also I would guess that there are more women that don't drive in BP compared to Lakewood. That's a key consideration when considering delivery service.

I was in there for a short time so I may not have caught everything but my take is that they did a pretty good job in differentiating themselves. The prices are good across the board (POTF milk $2.39 eggs 1.29 etc.) , but thatís to be expected when they open their doors. Long term many stores end up creeping up the prices over time. Fruits and vegetables seem to be decent grade (Birds Eye broccoli and fresh raspberries in a kosher store? Really? I guess thatís Lakewood 2019) Bakery section is huge. Fresh nuts and fresh spices section is pretty cool. Meat and poultry prices seem to be pretty good but not incredibly cheap, and selection is somewhat limited to the basics.Israeli coke and Doritos among the Israeli stuff they stock.

Where they really stand out is their Costco/Aldis like feel. Aldis style store brand items, like bulk cholent beans, paper goods, and their own cheap brand of appliances- hot plates, pump pots, etc. all at cheap prices.

Some Costco style bulk items like bags of 50 French mini baggettss for $16.99 vs the usual retail package of the same brand that you find in stores for around $6 a dozen.  And then thereís the eclectic assortment of merchandise scattered throughout the store like a down comforter, menís shabbos raincoat, beautiful washing cups, stylish girls headbands, Jewelery, toys etc. that make the shopping experience fun in a Costco kind of way, though on a much more limited scale. Aisles are wide and store is huge and roomy, Costco style.


All in all a good job creating a fun, good shopping experience. As far as prices go really good now, but time will tell.

Firstly, these days we have a huge contingency of chasidim that donít drive.
Also, Osher Ads delivery service was awesome. We used to get our whole order in big garbage bags outside our door. Everything from cans to fruits and veg to bottles all dumped in one big bag. They should try that here.

(POTF milk $2.39 eggs 1.29 etc.) .
I was in GG yesterday and they have now matched those prices, as regular prices not as sale prices, so thatís good news. I still have my receipt from last week where I bought the same potf milk as always 2.59, yesterday suddenly it showed up as 2.39 and the eggs too. So if they cut prices across the board then thatís already great, and thatís only day 1...

Also, Osher Ads delivery service was awesome. We used to get our whole order in big garbage bags outside our door. Everything from cans to fruits and veg to bottles all dumped in one big bag. They should try that here.

Itís really a different model than GG. For instance, if you want gefilta fish thereís 3 or 4 varieties not a dozen like GG. I wanted bread crumbs but they had two options, not the five that GG offers. Costco works that way too and it gives them great leverage for the limited products that they do carry, allowing them to get good pricing from their suppliers, since the product is getting almost exclusive placement on the shelves.

Bingoís  family pack of salmon was going for 7.99 lb which is a great price but donít expect tuna, sea bass, or any prepared salmon for that matter. Itís a trade-off; limited selection but better pricing.

every register opened. 16 in total. no baggers though

That will is big turn off for many people. I already heard from a few people that were there that they won't be going back bec. of that.

In Brooklyn they get away with it. But in Lakewood where people go shopping with 3 kids under the age of 4, it gets very difficult to bag your stuff.

Also I would guess that there are more women that don't drive in BP compared to Lakewood. That's a key consideration when considering delivery service.
A key consideration is being up to par with your competition. In Lakewood, almost every grocery offers delivery. Gourmet glatt, Seasons, Evergreen, NPGS, Super Stop, Aisle 9, Kosher Village, KFS, etc. etc.

It's not just about driving. It's about people not wanting to shlep to the grocery store with their whole family.

Their business model is to offer best price, with no extras. Another example is that they charge 30 cents a box, while other stores don't charge for boxes.

Ok, but I don't think that most people would consider baggers extra, or boxes either, for that matter. I would consider delivery a bigger "extra" than baggers. It is a major slowdown and inconvenience in my eyes. It's one of the primary reasons I never shop in NPGS. No baggers or extremely slow moving baggers.

Just came back from bingo NJ

why do they think I can read Spanish? they have dove shampoo with Spanish labels >:(,

prices are the same as in BP, which means they meet or beat krm  on most products. (beat KRM on produce of course and beets every local Lakewood grocery)
in these areas they are cheaper then any store I ever checked the pricing, jj mehadrin big Yougurts, paper goods, disposables etc, Juices, juices on average in any grocery is $3+ in bingo its $2+ regular price.

the spices add a live smell to the place.

its a stupid decision not to have baggers, even though they're trying to compare themselves to Costco, the smallest item in Costco is a 2 pack peanut butter, the smallest item inn bingo is a almond yes you can buy a single almond, costco packegaing is in bulk thats why there's no need for baggers vs bingo sells lose fruits vegetables yogurts baggers is a must, having baggers would increase the speed of checkout and increase the customer base it pays itself off (like the Mexican wall)

by checkout this Israeli next to me was pissed off that there're no baggers I told him you know osher aodd its the same company its all yours הכי בבית בעולם, he was mad and said i'm never stepping in this place again ..............

the sales are pretty much similar if not the same as in the BP location

where's the A&B fish >:( iirc in BP they carry A&B

BTW does anyone know why chrain-horseradish doesnt have a seal? I think its the only item without a seal

In Costco they have someone there putting your items in your cart. They donít have bags as they are selling bulk items which wouldnít fit in bags. In bingo they have bags just no one to help you.

well said, NPGS also (usually) doesn't pack the bags for you, but their bags are made from better material you don't need to lick your to separate the bags, those metal pieces that hold the bags are longer so you can fill the bag while its hanging, the cashier helps you once he is done scanning all the items unlike bingo where they sit around while you pack

Went back for some shabbos shopping and really impressed all around. Good job keeping the shelves stocked and the layout is a pleasure. Pricing all around is really good so far. Only issue with the pricing was that looking at my receipt I see that the 5lb potatoes which were two for $3 reg. 2.49 rang up with the first 2 for $3 but the third ringing up at $2.49. Some stores do that but it its not cool. Put a ďmust buy twoĒ on the sign....

One thing they still have to work out is the checkout process. They have this double wide checkout counter with two parallel conveyor belts running down it with a metal bar that swivels to a shunt the items down either the right conveyor belt or the left. That way they scan all of the customers items and take the payment, then while the first customer is bagging they can process the second customers items. The problem is that with no baggers everything kind of jumbles up in a bottleneck at the end of the conveyor belt while you are unloading your cart onto the checkout counter. I had a carton of eggs get pushed right off the counter by a bag of potatoes, and a seven layer cake get really smashed up in the process. Itís great to pay1.29 for the eggs but if they donít make it home intact thatís no bargain.The eggs and other fragile items need to be packaged by the cashier or otherwise separated out, Iím sure theyíll work out the kinks over time, but overall just a great shopping experience.

Thatís true, though there isnít enough room on the conveyer belt for all of the contents of a full shopping cart at once. so you can minimize the problem by putting the heavy stuff on first, but if you have more than a couple of fragile items something is gonna be on the receiving end.

Was in Bingo yesterday. A lot of what I experienced has already been said so I wonít rehash. Definitely like the bakery section. Donít understand the blackberry thing. Are there (ultra) Orthodox Jews that eat fresh blackberries?
Also, I had a terrible experience with the employee in charge of weighing everything by the appetizing station. Iím guessing he had a long day, however he was being extremely irritating, dishing attitude to every inquiry made by a costumer. Not sure why management would tolerate something as basic as that. Just lazy bad management. I guess you can take Osher Ad out of Israel, however you canít take the Israel out of Osher Ad  :-\

There we go with labels again. How about if it's bought in order to puree or squeeze?

In any event, I guarantee you that if they have it there someone is buying. They are not in the business of losing money.

Went back for some shabbos shopping and really impressed all around. Good job keeping the shelves stocked and the layout is a pleasure. Pricing all around is really good so far. Only issue with the pricing was that looking at my receipt I see that the 5lb potatoes which were two for $3 reg. 2.49 rang up with the first 2 for $3 but the third ringing up at $2.49. Some stores do that but it its not cool. Put a ďmust buy twoĒ on the sign....

One thing they still have to work out is the checkout process. They have this double wide checkout counter with two parallel conveyor belts running down it with a metal bar that swivels to a shunt the items down either the right conveyor belt or the left. That way they scan all of the customers items and take the payment, then while the first customer is bagging they can process the second customers items. The problem is that with no baggers everything kind of jumbles up in a bottleneck at the end of the conveyor belt while you are unloading your cart onto the checkout counter. I had a carton of eggs get pushed right off the counter by a bag of potatoes, and a seven layer cake get really smashed up in the process. Itís great to pay1.29 for the eggs but if they donít make it home intact thatís no bargain.The eggs and other fragile items need to be packaged by the cashier or otherwise separated out, Iím sure theyíll work out the kinks over time, but overall just a great shopping experience.
Don't be so sure, there's nothing new here this is how they handle it in BP for a couple years, all point where already mentioned in the other bingo thread
Because most people instead of bagging as soon as the items are scanned they wait till everything is rung up, start to discuss with his wife "bags? Box? You think it will fit in 2 or do we need 4 boxes?" And start the bagging process which creates the bottleneck

Not really. Most people have full shopping carts so by the time you completely empty the shopping cart onto the checkout counter, enabling you to bag the scanned items, the bottleneck is already in full force.

Seriously?

Is Lakewood such a rural and dispersed community, with poor communication? Did any Rabbonim or local Kashrus organizations put out an alert that people who care about Kashrus shouldn't purchase blackberries, raspberries, or any other fruit or vegetable that is considered muchzak and is very difficult to check/rid of infestation?

Lakewood is not what is used to be. If the rabbonim put out an alert it would have to cover a good chunk of many of the grocery store produce aisles- Andy Boy Romaine,Broccoli, and literally dozens of produce items, some of which a consumer could conceivably clean if they took a course, but in practice will almost always be consumed in a manner that even the OU would not accept, and other items that are almost impossible to clean properly according to any mainstream kashrush agency.

Yeah, the stores may tell you that you can technically filter and use the juice; go take an informal survey of the purchasers and see how many plan on using the product that way....

The rabbonim sometimes have to pick their battles....

And thatís just the retail scene. Ask anyone involved in the restaurant scene ( Iím talking in general, not Lakewood) and they will tell you that there is a huge gap between theory and practice; many kashrus agencies have official protocol for vegetable checking and washing in restaurants under their supervision that in practice are routinely violated. Often the mashgiach is a kid who is getting paid a pittance to check all the vegetables as well as do general restaurant work. There are often way more vegetables to be processed than are practicaly able to be processed in the time frame provided. I know someone in charge of supervising masgichim for restaurants under a hashgacha in NJ who has story after story. He has caught restaurants with batches of vegetables that they claimed were checked that turned out the staff lied and just dumped in a bin for use. They get a reprimand but the agency that he works for wonít drop them for various cheshbonos. He tells me he takes no responsibility; he only works for the agency and is doing hos job. He would not eat at most of the places and privately tells people who ask him the same...

Overall (not talking about specific communities)  Most ppl buy anything that their local grocery sells as long as it's says the work Kosher. I'm not saying that in a negative way, just as a fact. Publicizing helps ppl that are familiar somewhat with kashrus, be aware of the issue, but it usually doesn't have a big effort on the purchases.

Itís not always for the money. Sometimes they rationalize that the establishments and or clientele (certain segments are traditionally oriented but donít have a high level of observance) will migrate to an even lower standard without them so they consider it a necessary to compromise and sometimes look the other way....

Lakewood is not what is used to be. If the rabbonim put out an alert it would have to cover a good chunk of many of the grocery store produce aisles- Andy Boy Romaine,Broccoli, and literally dozens of produce items, some of which a consumer could conceivably clean if they took a course, but in practice will almost always be consumed in a manner that even the OU would not accept, and other items that are almost impossible to clean properly according to any mainstream kashrush agency.
Seriously? You're bunching together Andy Boy Romaine with Broccoli (and blackberries)? Many people regularly buy and check Andy Boy Romaine lettuce, nothing wrong with that, on the contrary, it serves as a chinuch for the household to know that we don't just buy everything packaged and ready to eat.

Yeah, the stores may tell you that you can technically filter and use the juice; go take an informal survey of the purchasers and see how many plan on using the product that way....

The rabbonim sometimes have to pick their battles....
Well, if everything is viewed as a battle, then there will definitely be losers! But if things are done in an educating way, maybe a few more people would be saved from a potential michshol. What's wrong with send out a reminder through all schools (and other methods) that Blackberries are considered highly infested and are so difficult to inspect/clean that all kashrus authorities/rabbonim don't allow it in their homes or in food establishments under their supervision.

And thatís just the retail scene. Ask anyone involved in the restaurant scene ( Iím talking in general, not Lakewood) and they will tell you that there is a huge gap between theory and practice; many kashrus agencies have official protocol for vegetable checking and washing in restaurants under their supervision that in practice are routinely violated. Often the mashgiach is a kid who is getting paid a pittance to check all the vegetables as well as do general restaurant work. There are often way more vegetables to be processed than are practicaly able to be processed in the time frame provided. I know someone in charge of supervising masgichim for restaurants under a hashgacha in NJ who has story after story. He has caught restaurants with batches of vegetables that they claimed were checked that turned out the staff lied and just dumped in a bin for use. They get a reprimand but the agency that he works for wonít drop them for various cheshbonos. He tells me he takes no responsibility; he only works for the agency and is doing hos job. He would not eat at most of the places and privately tells people who ask him the same...
When it comes to a restaurant, the rule of thumb should be: if I won't eat in the owner's home, I won't eat in his restaurant.

Theoretically, but it is unlikely that your original intent is to blend it so thoroughly that it would be אין כוונתו לבטל. Also itís a lot easier to blend hard frozen fruit such as frozen strawberries in a manner that will be מרסק it so there are no בריהs left. The frozen particles are abrasive. It is far less likely that blending fresh soft raspberries will do the trick. Try blending instant coffee with milk and sugar in a blender. Then do it with a tray of ice cubes and see the difference.

Something which was nisbatel lichatchila is assur midirabonon. That is dvorim assurim.

The first thing is that it needs to be something pureed to the level that it would definitely break up insects smaller than a berry seed as the way it is always made. It needs to be something which would be pureed to that level even had there been no issue of insects at all. Pureeing finer in order to accomplish this is inadequate. It needs to be something which the way it is generally made would be that fine. Considering that syrups and sauces almost always have whole seeds in them that would mean that they aren't pureed fine enough to break up aphids thrips and mites which are smaller than that. Just a safek of them breaking up is also inadequate since it is muchzak.

Therein lies the problem, if you are unable to draw the line, then how are you deciding what goes on which side of the line other than what you feel?

Like I said, it's all based on how you feel. I'll gladly admit i'm wrong if you can show me why I'm wrong, but until then don't put responsibility on other people, unless you have a good source for it.

It appears you have decided but have difficulty articulating your reasoning.
can u articulate what I have decided? Insert my quote to better help your point. All I have said is that there is an idea that one who sells something assur to someone, may bear responsibility. The what, where and when, I havenít discussed. I was simply arguing the general idea that a store owner will never be responsible. Please read my posts before making claims.

although I do agree with u that ultimately the consumer will have to answer up for what he/she has done individually, and people shouldnít have the ďif they sell it, it must be okĒ mentality, still I believe a shomer Torah umitzvos store shares responsibility to a degree in what they are selling.

I just went there again. A few points.
- I donít understand their long term plan with no baggers. It will really make me think twice about coming back. And as a side I end up using way more bags then the bagger would.
- When they have a sale item you have to buy the amount of items per sale. I.e. 4 lemons for $2. It doesnít specify ĎMust buy 2í but you need to.
- Nuts section is great and cheap but those open candy section just looks way too enticing for a kid not to eat one and put it back when his mother starts screaming at them.

Itís very simple. There are 16 checkout lanes? Thatís potentially 16-32 more full time salaries that would get broken down into the price of your groceries.

Same reason why almost everything in Costco is on the pallets they were delivered on (saving employees manual labor of unpacking everything onto shelves, oh and they donít have baggers). All extra salaries that you, the consumer ends up paying for.

No way is that even remotely true. Baggers don't save much time, they're a nice service that people enjoy.

IDK if it's just me or not, but I think this demand that every store must have baggers or I won't walk back in there is a bit extreme IMO. I grew up in lakewood, until recently most stores did not have baggers.

This is also efficient because it clears the area for the next shopper.

Only issue with the pricing was that looking at my receipt I see that the 5lb potatoes which were two for $3 reg. 2.49 rang up with the first 2 for $3 but the third ringing up at $2.49. Some stores do that but it its not cool. Put a ďmust buy twoĒ on the sign....

No offense but I disagree with you 100%. Its not a "nice gesture" to put your shopping cart back, its basic mentshlickeit. When you use anything no matter where it is, when you're done you put it back . whether you're using a sefer in shul,  reading a book in the library, or using a cart in the store.

lots of shuls have gaboim to put away seforimm also. all that means is that they realize that lots of people are inconsiderate and if they dont have them then the seforim will stay on the tables/shtenders till the end of time. same with shopping carts.

Thatís not the way it works in Shoprite, Target, Walmart or most of the Jewish supermarkets. Itís usually lly seen as a marketing ploy. Where you must buy the full quantity that is clearly listed.

In fact, charging more for one where it isnít posted would likely violate many states pricing laws, as well as potential false advertising laws, so itís a dangerous game to play...

And thin and flimsy similar to Shoprite bags vs the Jewish grocery stores. I overloaded one and had it split on me when loading the car. My fault, but I sure am used to the more substantial bags.

The way it works - if it's 2 for $4, it should be the same price for 1 unit, unless they write - "must buy 2".
However, regardless if they write "must buy 2" or not, any further units purchased are at the same rate.
If they want to only discount in increments of 2, then they write - "must purchase increments of 2"

If every chain store without exception makes sure to put must buy x in the small print unless they charge the same for a single unit, thatís tells you itís more than just common practice, itís likely required under state or city consumer protection statutes.

Why would the sign say "2 for $4" instead of just saying "price is $1" just like all other items in the store have the price listed as a quantity of 1??

The answer is that the sale sign is specifying a special price if you buy 2!

No, itís because marketing researchers study shoppers like they study lab rats behavior and they figured out that people buy significantly more when you advertise an item as $10 for $10 rather than $1 a piece, even though shoppers can buy one item at the sale price even when the offer is 10/$10.

https://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/18/business/grocery-stores-use-big-quantities-to-entice-shoppers.html?ref=business&_r=0

Stores have shoppers behavior analyzed  down to exactly which shelve height to place the most expensive item and which size chewing gum or chocolate bar will be irresistible at the checkout counter.

Do you mean that you didnt see the actual coupon on the receipt? in Bingo the coupon doesnt show up on the receipt(unlike Costco) rather the price is just adjusted. Was the milk 1.89 eggs .89 etc?

I was there last week and went back last night i noticed a big drop in prices the signs were updated with member only price and were much cheaper. Also interesting to mention the person in front of me didn't know you have to scan membership card before your start checkout and when he gave card at the end the cashier told him oh its fine i gave you all member prices anyway!

Iím pretty sure everyone can get the member prices.
Imagine if youíre about to pay and realize you didnít get the cheaper prices. Youíll be like Ďoh hold my stuff here for a little, Iíll sign up nowí

ok this makes sense now.. there are prices by the eggs saying 0.89 and the milk says 1.89, but the coupon in the email says a member saving of xxx off which would usually mean that that coupon amount gets clipped to the ring up prices. Not their first misinformation....

Lets start.
What does gas cost for a 10 minute drive?
2.13 Gal @ Costco
Buy 300 cups for ~$2.50 other stores charge +$1 per 100,
32 oz yogurt for $3 other stored charge +$5,
gefilta fish $4.99 in npgs its +$7,
juice apple cider etc +$2 npgs & GG its +$3,
Kedem grape juice 50 oz 3.75 NPGS $4.50
Salmon fish 7.99 lb NPGS +$10 lb
Bingo has the cheapest JJ Formula 6.99 a bottle not one other store in Lakewood or in BP matches this price and its regular price ........ 
still overpaid with gas?

All these prices mentioned aren't sale prices they're bingo's regular pricing

You missed a big part of the question - it may be closer to many people but it's out of the way for almost everyone. Most people have No reason to be in that area for anything else on a regular basis...I live down the 9 and I'm probably closer to Bingo than GG but I go to Yeshiva, I sometimes shop in Aldi's I go to Walmart etc. But if the prices are that great than it may be worth starting to shop there...

The loss prevention person by the door in Costco is trained to do a rough item count and to look for items that may be hidden under other items. I once had the cashier scan two cases of water instead of three. I had plenty of items in the cart including a few that were scanned ďin cartĒ. The woman by the door glanced at the receipt, looked up and down at the cart, and said thereís an extra water thatís not on the receipt.

Bingo is obviously not doing that. Still having someone by the door is a psychological barrier to shoplifting. Thatís why Walmart has greeters.

Definitely disagree with you, they beat NPGS pricing on nearly everything I actually physically compared, I actually think the pricing isnít really sustainable and itís just for the beginning, so chap arein. Similar to when GG moved in dirt cheap and then raised their prices.

You're right.. you will save on pretty much every item - besides for products that are on sale in other stores - I was more disappointed in the lack of sales - I thought walking in I would see a great price on like Sugar - 1.99 is not a great price - white tuna nothing special etc.. to get me to go down there I want to see an 8lb bag of sugar for 1.99 white tuna for .99!! Let me know when they got those prices..

Not sure if anyone spoke about this yet...    What type of charge does bingo lakewood come up as on the credit card? Is it a regular grocery charge for Amex? and what about for chase?

Doesn't show up for 4x for groceries on my gold amex, while Evergreen and NPGS do.  i think the category is warehouse.

Was in Bingo bi-weekly since opening.

Its gotten better every time, never stood in lines (GG is atrocious), i'm paying 30% less for meat fish & poultry (same quality as GG), and as I live south of the lake, am having a breeze getting there and back.

Bingo isles are large, they have tachlis stuff, good prices, I'm capable of boxing myself, and I find the place busy all the time. People vote with their wallets, I think this Pesach season they're going to thrash everyone else.

Don't get me started on NPGS or EG...

i'm still on the fence about Bingo but this is ridiculously fake news. Why go thru the trouble of a price comparison, and then do something as obvious as only buy sales items at GG and EG. Try that in reverse and see what happens lol. Also you claim you can get that delivered at GG. That is emphatically fake news since their policy is they only deliver if there are $75 of non sale items. YOU DON'T HAVE A SINGLE NON SALE ITEM IN YOUR CART . #FakeNews

It is too eye straining to compare everything, but one thing that I noticed immediately was 600 Soup Spoon and 600 Forks at Bingos, compared to 3x400 teaspoons at Evergreen.

I don't know if this is because only the teaspoons were on sale at Evergreen, but I can definitely say that the store brand disposables at Bingo are of better quality than those sold elsewhere. I sometimes go to Bingo (Brooklyn) with the disposables being my prime reason for the trip.

Terribly misleading. If you shop only the loss leaders at EG and GG of course you will come out ahead. You will beat NPGS by a wide margin as well. But if you shop for regular items on a normal shopping list bingo will easily be 15-30% lower on average, and they will beat NPGS as well. Of course prices have to go up eventually; they have got to be selling for close to cost price right now. But to make that kind of comparison right now is rediculous...

You can't take the "loss leaders" out of the equation - when a person goes shopping they make stock up on those items thereby saving alot of $ which offsets the lower Bingo prices - and if they purchase enough of the "loss leader" items they may not save much by schlepping out to BINGO.. Now if Only NPGS would have "loss Leaders"... they probably can't afford it as they don't overprice their other items like GG or EG

The average shopper gets pulled in by the loss leaders but ends up paying more overall. Iíve compared GG even with going out of my way to go for the loss leaders and stock up when possible, and itís still doesnít come close. I havenít compared GG with the loss leaders to NPGS though. I wonder if they are pretty close.  GG is more convenient for me than Bingo, and has way more selection, so Iíll still head there on occasion but I know that Iím paying for convenience and selection.

I've had to bag my stuff in NPGS and Evergreen in the past with my kids around me, and even though those are way less convenient than Bingo (narrower lanes, no space for people to pass by with your cart sticking out), I've survived. I just don't see the major issue with them not having baggers. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that baggers are a bad thing, but that isn't what would hold me back from going again

Was there last Thursday night, the store was quite empty, was more like a ghost town.
 A store Thursday night should be packed like the one in Brooklyn unfortunately it's a little too far for an average person just to say I'm going grocery shopping it's on the other side of Lakewood.

 But I hope they build up their name and do well in Lakewood aside for doing amazing in Brooklyn bli ayen hara.

ďSad. Those who lower themselves by taking advantage in this way are small minded people.

Is it muttar to go to a Sholom zachor and drink up all of the hosts good shnaps? Perhaps. Is it muttar for a guest in a pesach hotel to raid the tea room and take all the expensive chocolates up to their room? Perhaps. Is it muttar to taste every cracker and dip put out by a store for sampling five times (exiting the store in between so each time you are a new customer or course). Perhps. But it is a pitiful and lowly way to live.

Asking only if something is technically mutter is an unhealthy mentality. We should be much bigger than that. Donít ask if it is muttar. Ask if it is right. A mentsch with self respect would not take advantage of a retailer in this way. Those who lower themselves in this way usually approach bein odom lichaveiro in general in an unhealthy win/lose way. We have to teach our kids that there is more then just muttar and assur; there is yashrus and healthy respect for others. Otherwise they will grow up to be the kind of person whom anyone who crosses their path comes away with a distasteful feeling. We all know those kinds of people. We can be better than that.ď

IMO there are two kinds of people- those who get it, and those who you might as well be speaking to in Chinese.

Bingo and all stores for that matter have a very easy way of thwarting anyone from going over the limit (they can actually use the membership card for a purpose)they can program the card/account to only allow the sale once (they can program it once a day or however they wish)... Granted you can get multiple cards but there's a limit there..
I thought someone would ask a shaila if it's right for stores to advertise sales and never have the items in stock?

ďAs part of the terms of the sale, Bingo limits the quantity per customer. Some items are below cost, for example, coffee which is sold in regular stores for $15 is purchased by the stores for about $9.50 Ė wholesale. Bingo is selling it at $6.99.

However, GreaterLakewood confirmed people are purchasing coffee in particular in bulk and are selling it to local stores. Anything below $9.50 is a deal for the stores and the Ďmiddle maní can make $1.50-$2.00 per container Ė easy money!Ē

Good example of how bingo makes money on something they sell with a "loss".
(heard the story from someone working there)
one year before pesach bingo sold suits (short, not long) for $25, when in the heimishe clothing stores like G&G and GB it costs somewhere between $150-$250 for the exact same suit!!

Now the first part of the story:

one of the heimishe clothing stores stayed stuck with a few hundred old short suits and was looking to get rid of it, so they tried contacting all kind of organizations and asked them if they have what to do with it, but no one needed the suits. so they contacted a dumping company to come pick up the suits to be thrown out in garbage and that company charged them about $500 for dumping the suits, but somehow bingo heard of this so they immediately called up the store and told them not to throw it away because they need it... now the store was happy not to spend money on dumping, and bingo was making $25 profit on each suit!!
So in there dictionary the definition for "loss" is "profit"

 I thought it was a way of advertising. I'm sure they don't mind if NPGS starts selling coffe with bingos logo.
 Free advertisement. If I walk into a store selling bingos products, right away I would say to myslef why the need for the middle man when I can go and buy the items directly from the store?

Anyone try the Zero Gravity chairs? Are they the same as the Ebay and Rakuten 2 for $50? Those were really bad. Didn't like them and didn't go all the way back, no zaycher of zero gravity.
 Just bought the one for $50 from amazon and let's home it's really worth the $50. (https://www.dansdeals.com/shopping-deals/amazon/today-zero-gravity-chair-29-99-oversized-zero-gravity-chair-39-99-shipped-amazon/)

Post by: myi on July 11, 2019, 03:18:12 PM
So how does it work in the bingo in lakewood? It's been quite a while since I saw the store so full.
 The ironic thing about this store is, when I come at night the place it's empty with 16 registers open. But on a Thursday afternoon there's 5 registers open when they have a capacity of 16 which can be working, and over 62 people with carts filled to capacity waiting over 27 minutes to go pay.
 Now that's understood why people would rather go local to grocery vs waiting 20 plus minutes to shop and drive minimum of 10-15 to get to the bingo store.

   And if you don't believe me check out these pics.

 One would come to bingo to snatch the few products that are on sale at bingo and do the shopping for the week vs go to GG and do the shopping on Sunday for shabbbos, so not really sure why they have a Sunday sale and not something like a wed or Thursday sale.

Noone said not.
  I don't think there was a time when I went to get just the specials, since I was going there anyways ended up making an entire grocery shopping out of the trip.
   When's the last time you saw them advertised in the paper or any other place?
 "That costs money".
 
 The way of advertising which bingo seems to be doing is word-of-mouth which is a lot better in a way then on a paper which has to be that so-and-so read that paper.
 
  So they get a carton of eggs for 50-$0.60 and giving 6 per customer so $3 per person.
  If every customer is going to do the whole shopping or at least half a shopping it's worth for them to give you a $3 coupon for groceries you purchased.

Lol, same thing on Thursday night when they officially closed at 12 a.m., you can shop until 12:30-1am Fissure.
 The nuts and candies are already starting to be covered at 12: 10-12-15am.

but to my surprise there's still a line when going to pay.

2. They're on the otherside of town, so needs a magnetic cause to attract people to that side of town. A free item here a crazy priced item here, and guess what you'd be surprised how many people come for the freebies even thought it's cross country.
3. With them much hatzlacha!

I agree with you on that, they need to know when it's the peak hours, meaning when it's the most busy time of the day hence the need for more cashiers working at the register verses making everyone wait over half hour to pay, let alone it takes 15 to 25 minutes to get to the store.
  Instead of having the workers roaming around the store have them trained how to be a cashier as well.

 And here's my post I was referring to..

Yes don't know what that is for or what that's all about, Max someone is going to steal, maybe a bottle of milk for $2? Or maybe a tray of chicken sorry.
  or have the cashier make sure everything in the wagon was paid for as they're checking the person out,but then again if the cashiers are backlogged with items people are scanning items and placing it right back into their cart so you can never know what was paid for and what was not.

But then again if I have it all bagged up what good is a worker putting a scribble on your receipt going to help?
 
Or the times I have it boxed up, all he does is scribble down the receipt.
 
 like mentioned before either have some employees or the guy at the exit, instead of him marking people's receipts bagging the customers which would speed up the checkout process and not backlog the checkout process as your items are still on the register.
  So it seems either the free eggs or the need to wait 25 minutes to check out and to bag all your items.
 
   
   Yes a free six dozen eggs or a free case of bumba or dirt cheap olive oil or dish soap is a nice thing, but if the service is not up to par it doesn't equal out, or people come and shop there once making up in their mind not to come back because of some silly things which they're being cheap on like the registers.

Unfortunately this is wrong.
I'm using that as a metaphor, I was trying to bring out if someone is a thief, he will pocket items while he's walking around in the store.
  And buy three of the same items and take a 4th and 5th hoping noone would realize.

  A ganev is a ganev, and he's living that way, I hope he doesn't get caught in the act, meaning chances are these guys are getting away, when someone shops at Wegmans and you put your own chocolate and candy in a bag there's no one stopping you from reopening it after getting a label for x and x price.
   Same in Asher As (Bingo) in Israel where they trust you to weigh your fruits and vegetables.

   Just bringing out the point that the cashiers should be on the lookout and make sure each item was scanned and by having someone make a line on your receipt is not going to accomplish much.

You have all types of thieves. some would be uncomfortable putting stuff in their pocket but walking out with a cart pretending they paid is easier.

I'm sure theft is an issue in all stores, unfortunately. But other groceries in town are able to implement loss prevention programs without making people wait to have their receipts checked on the way out. And I imagine it's still easy to have extra items in bags that the receipt checker wouldn't notice - as opposed to Costco, where nothing is bagged and they can quickly scan your cart and receipt and see everything.

Bingo and all stores for that matter have a very easy way of thwarting anyone from going over the limit (they can actually use the membership card for a purpose)they can program the card/account to only allow the sale once (they can program it once a day or however they wish)... Granted you can get multiple cards but there's a limit there..
I thought someone would ask a shaila if it's right for stores to advertise sales and never have the items in stock?

 They did now. I picked up the eggs on Sunday, and happened to need another couple dozen tonight. It scanned full price. The cashier told me itís now programmed  to limit the specials to once per membership card.

Name one store? - It's a standard practice in every supermarket not to require you to buy the full quantity unless stated otherwise such as must buy 2 or what the price for any other quantity will be... Maybe you never knew that - but to deviate from an industry standard is deceiving. To Bingo's credit I did start noticing prices on some items that contain the price of other quantities.

If all other stores in the industry are more generous that they advertise, that's great!

In simple English, "2 for $3" means that if you buy 2, they will charge you $3. Nothing more and nothing less.

I just remembered!
I think there's a special term in English to reference the pricing to which you refer.
I think when stores want to give a set discount without regard to the quantity being bought there's this term "1 for $1.50", or they can even write "$1.50 each".

it's a piece of plywood with 2x2 surrounding the ply wood to make it a sturdy frame.
     You can technically make them yourself, it's time-consuming and you need to pick up the wood.

Every fruit usaully has the number for the item, aside for it being a plum or peach it's item number 0104 so no need to look for a plum or peach on the screen just type in 0104 amd weight the fruits and tap the sticker on the bag, and done.
