The 2 points are independent. End of the day they do tremendous ammount of chessed they dont deserve to have people wishing them harm.
No they are not. If you are an evil person but do some good you are still an evil person.

I agree with your first point. The chesed that theu do was not brought up to rationalize their prices but to admonish wishing evil on them.
As to your second point, yes it does give them tremendous pr but I personally can vouch that their is also l'shma aspects. Also, if only all businesses were as "self serving" with their pr as you accuse gg of being we would be much better off.
dont cover up evil with some good deeds.

Its seems to me its 0% lishma. It would be alot easier to just lower the prices then to go outside and find things to sponsor. They are literally taking advantage of the 5towns community. A boxed pastry item in GG in Bk as $6.99 and $11.99 in 5towns.
I guess what does GG have to loose if someone else comes in they can just lower their prices.

What you are seeing is resentment. So much focus on this outside chesed. Why not bring it closer to home like into the store...where ppl are struggling to pay these insane prices. Earlier on in this thread i mentioned that I went to get grapes for my son who requested them for school. The bag was $9.57. Sorry son that ain't happening.

side note: As i mentioned before, all this chesed is amazing PR so I'm yet to be convinced all this chesed is 1000% lishma.

I just made this exact argument this morning with someone I was discussing this with. How about their chessed be making food shopping affordable for everyone and a little less sponsoring (marketing) of every organization under the sun. I'm sure people wont lose sleep if their Cedarhurst park concert doesn't happen.

There seems to be so many people concerned about this. Unfortunately, no one is doing anything about this except moan and groan(myself included) online or with friends.

I dont have too many ideas how to take this to the next level, but perhaps if enough people start writing into the local newspaper, and getting their voices out we can get them thinking...
GG doesnt have to lower ther pricing because it is a free market BUT . dont force cheaper stores not to open and go around boasting about chesed.

@Yankee123 maybe get 100 ppl together (easier then you think) go to Frankels or another store, commit to only shopping ther for X percent off. or KRM or any BK store would deliver for even just 5 families if they dont already.

different price levels (LB will be more $). for a sandwich/going with kids definitely wolf/lamb. for sushi/semi-top level steak its la brochette in my experience (though i havent got a steak at WL in prob 10+ years so things may have changed).
bedford on park is good same price as LB

Also, why doesnt it make sense that GG basically paid KRM to stay out of the 5T for a few years?
 
Hard for me to see a $ that would work for both sides. Regardless dont you think its a scummy thing to do? (paying your competition off so you can rip everyone else off)

Why cant you believe that after looking at the actual cost of renovating brach's KRM decided that it was too expensive and backed out? Also, why doesnt it make sense that GG basically paid KRM to stay out of the 5T for a few years?
Why does GG threatening to lower their prices make more sense?
How high can renovations cost that it wont be worth it to open a store in a wide open market? (we are not talking about the cost of the property and real estate because that they knew upfront) Most stores do it in a populated market.

Threatening to lower prices make more sense because with competition from GG maybe the risk wasnt worth it.

GG helped KRM get out of the Brach's deal after paying a pretty large deposit. No one here is acting selflessly
I still dont full understand why KRM backed out even if this is true. Costs of renovating? Brachs was not in such bad shape and even if they were its such a huge open market with no competition.

Maybe GG helped KRM get out of the deal plus added in another million etc... But even so it still doesnt make sense

Im guessing GG threatened to drop their prices 30% the second they move in.

thats not exactly accurate. The deal between KRM and brach's fell through without involvement from GG. I believe it had something to do with the costs of renovating being much higher than KRM originally estimated. GG did then get involved and in their involvement did get KRM agree to not compete in the 5T for a time
v.
5towns is a huge open market for a store like KRM what did KRM gain from agreeing not to compete? Hard to blv.

A company can make an order from you, claim it is counterfeit - even if it is not - and amazon will shut you down quicker than you can say buy box.
HP wont do that.
