That would be great news since Lakewood has a terrible shortage of large and more expensive groceries.

The answer to that is definitely more groceries. Competition lowers costs more effectively then any other method. Just wait until Bingo decides to open in Lakewood, and see what that does for pricing.

If supermarket owner #1 knows he needs to compete for your dollar against four other choices, some of which are relatively close by, as opposed to perhaps one other choice, on the other side of town, which one do you think is more likely to cause him to have better prices?

In Lakewood there is also competition to who can be the most upscale. There are lots of super fancy people here, who will only shop at the most choshuver grocery.
So unfortunately it works the other way here. The new groceries have increased demand, not just supply.

The economics of Lakewood are backwards.

I like the Prime 95 Lunch specials, do it all the time (and it's usually empty), Ottimo is sometimes an assault on the senses (hearing )

Anyone know if Marcyís already moved into new location? If they havenít yet when?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Considering 5 gallon water delivery, I have my own cooler. Any suggestions on the best price / service? Costco has delivery fees, which offset the lower price of the water. I want the least expensive possible...
