No clue what ur talking about. My son had to wear a mask all day from start to end.
Less than 10 months till rosh hashanah. Never too early to work on ourselves and try to be a little more careful how we talk about other yidden, especially those that are considered chashuv by many others.

not trying to speak bad, just speaking unfortunate facts

The fact is that my son must (and does because the rebbiem and teachers are enforcing it) wear a mask ALL day. End of story.
As far as speaking bad, it's worth watching what comes out of our mouths, even if we don't mean to speak bad.

first of all I have firsthand knowledge that rebbeim do not enforce it. they say put it on if someone comes. your son is lucky that his rebbe is one of the few in that school that cares about their health.

What does wearing a mask have to do with health?

If the law requires it, then they need to wear it to comply with the law. If not, then just because you feel there is a health benefit, the other parents may not feel that way. Who is a Rebbi to take sides?!? Although the media tries to hide it, many experts (even Fauci at one point) opine it is better not to wear masks.

What is a fair price for an install of a sprinkler system in a 10k sq foot lot house for most of the lot (house takes up a lil less than half)?

The new Stop and Shop is real competition for our local Kosher stores. They have a much better selection on many items than GG or Seasons.

Free parking too. (True location is not good, but if you go at the right time, it can be  quicker than parking by GG)

It'll just take some time to learnt the store. Kosher section is huge, but a lot of Kosher items (like Sabra products and the like) are spread throughout the store.

they have one aisle of kosher food lets not get carried away here. yes the kosher aisle has a very good selection of stuff , but its one aisle. and the prices dont beat kolsave.
 the location is HORRIBLE. when is there not traffic to get there? theres only one road to and from the mall its always been a traffic problem there.
But it looks like a very nice store. lots of free giveaways on friday  ;D
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

I must have missed the giveaways. What were they giving?

KolSave also is not a cheap store. They used to be cheap. Now they are cheaper on a few items. Many items are even cheaper at GG. And especially recently, their selection is horrible and some sale items are near expiration dates.

S&S might only be one aisle, but it is a very big aisle with a much better selection than KolSave or GG. If you would take all the Kosher brand items in KolSave, pull them out and put them in one asile, you wouldn't have much more than Stop &Shop has.
