And this confirms it. From DDF's Chief Lakewood Correspondent.
$1,500 hit my bank account this morning from NJ's ANCHOR tax refund. Applied months ago, had no idea it was coming anytime soon. Timing couldn't be better with Pesach a week away.

Thank You Hashem!

I have a place in Elizabeth NJ that does an amazing job for less then half the price of the Jewish guys. (3 year warranty on the tint)
PM me for info.
Yup, Omar, that's who I used, $170 I paid back then, I know many others who used his shop as well.

Maybe I'll hear back from you in 2026 =)

I guess it's a sign of where Lakewood is today, that it's not pashut to everyone that it's pashut to everyone that there would be bittul melacha during the levaya...

It was very nice to see in many cases, specifically retail-facing businesses. But we didnít need to know about every real estate office or whatever that closed for an hour or 2. Find a more appropriate time and place to virtue signal.

Assuming no store actually put out 12 to 1215, and that was the OP way of exaggerating his point. Store Im referring to was told to close from 12 to 2
