many hashgachos will not give Hashgacha to a venue that doesn't meet their standards in areas other than food (mixed swimming, electronic locks , no eruv , no shabbos elevator etc.) This rav hamachshir seems to have taken it a step further.

With this Topic there are certain hechaherim that won't grant restaurants a hechsher if they open motzei pesach.

That's for a different reason which is kashrus related. Not because of the fresserai.

I know Rabbi Bistritzky A"H from Tzfas used to go around on Shvi'i Shel Pesach to the establishments with his Hechsher and more than once caught an over-eager owner getting a head-start...

Yup, that's what happened here many years ago. As a knas, vhq prohibits pizza shops from opening. I know people have tried to undo it over the years but couldn't get through the bureaucracy.

Collective punishment? IINM R' Bistritzky just took his Hechsher off the offending establishment.

That's what a sane vaad would do.

Its one of the only thing the vhq is makpid on. Most other things they ignore. Though they didn't give a hechsher to a jew who sold his store for shabbos, or a store which had a dance floor that let mixed dancing

head start with what ? Actual chometz and melacha or hachana? Not condoning either, just curious.

Every time they refuse to give a hechsher grip reasons like that they end up looking foolish.

There was the "Internet Cafe" they thought would become a hangout for yeshiva guys and girls. Turned out to be a meeting place for chazaq shiurim.

The mixed dancing was another folly. They thought it was a night club because of the disco lights. Turns out bucharians just like disco. They use that place for bar mitzvahs and I've never seen any mixed dancing going on.

I think the store was owned by an Israeli who kept one day.
