We needed a bingo or moishas to come to the area and give GG some competition

KRM/ Moishes almost opened here. GG paid them off not to.

Some Community Leaders even got involved and begged GG to make shopping more affordable. They promised to open an affordable store. That's where KolSave came in. GG was afraid someone will get a competitor to move in, so they were "forced" to open an affordable store.

But now they keep on upping the prices. They make you feel like your shopping at Aldi's with no selection and generic brands. Prices are only normal on sale items. But since they are cheaper then the other places in town, they can claim to be saving you money.

When GG has competition, they behave. Look at the Lakewood prices. This week, for example, Normans Greek Yogurts in Lakewood GG 89 cents. Here it is 5 for 6 dollars. There is no competition and they take advantage big time.

Look at the prices from the add from BINGO Lakewood! They have the same yogurts for 25 cents! This is what we need here!

Is it possible that gg has higher expenses here?
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

I don’t know why people are bashing gg. If one of the Brooklyn stores opened here they wouldn’t do well at all. People here need a clean beautiful store with people helping them with what they need. There are options here to save money like Frankels and kolsave. They are not nearly as busy as Gourmet Glatt is.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

what's the deal with the 6th town. anyone have a link to a real fair and balanced synopsis (all the local cheap papers are contradictory, esp as to what the golf course is actually zoned for).

what the heck are you saying? many (most?) 5t ppl need a more affordable option. kol save is a garbage store. purposely done that way. prices are spotty. they are not incentivized to make it a good cheap store like bk stores.


its a great business strategy. monopolies are quite profitable. im not saying i wouldn't do the same if i was him, but its crushing the community. I cannot wait for bingo or similar to demolish them.

Hi, I need an apartment to rent asap in 5towns, preferably Cedarhurst. Anyone have anything? Already spoke to brokers, they've got nothing. I checked 5towns shul list, nothing.

I'm looking for a 1 bedroom, though at this point I would take a 2, even 3 bedroom apartment, as long as the rent isn't too high. I have to move because my lease is up and I've been searching for an apartment for a month already.

Anyone have anything, or can help point me in the right direction?

maybe it brings the housing market down a little which would only benefit new buyers
