All Shoprites are distributed by their own distribution co-op, Wakefern. The Fern family is originally Jewish but at this point may not be due to possible intermarriage. Fern is not their original name (the original is the same as mine-they are distant relatives). EIther way, from the various lists it seems that Wakefern is currently minority Jewish owned. THe current executive team has one Jewsih sounding name in Allison Berger, SVP and GC.
Wakefern sells their chametz through R'  Teitz of Elizabeth, so I'd say that Shoprite brand chametz was either at the Saker-owned store on Pesach or at Wakefern which sells their chametz.  Does Wakefern act as their distributor for the national brands too? I didn't know that.

what about chometz that wakefern (or any other non religious company) buys on Pesach itself?

Iirc r teitz sells it for them/ they don't ask him to sell..
and r Moshe holds this is not effective

Or something like that..

Thanks. Anyone know which of the larger Shuls are sign friendly? I don't think forest park had a place for signs last time I looked. Any others? Thanks.

Depending on the area it may be common - ask your neighbors. Go with an exterminator
Don't ask stupid questions and you won't get stupid answers

Very common in Lakewood NJ basements imho.
The exterminators chemicals are much more dangerous...

Friend of mine living in a basement had this done right before pesach. Is this something the landlord should pay for, or the tenant? He mentioned to his landlord that he was calling an exterminator, but he didn't offer to deduct it from rent.
Btw, I believe he used bugaboo for like $100.
