Well said
Start keeping yashon and you'll  learn real quick which store sell the old stuff. Surprisingly I have a hard time finding yashon products in npgs. They seem to have the quickest turn around and therefore the freshest items on the shelf. Thus misconception about them having expired items, is because they occasionally buy almost expired and then sell them for steep discounts. However when they do this, they usually post the expiration date on a sign. (I do not work for them, nor do I know anyone who does. This is just a personal observation)

Incorrect my friend. NPGS buys bulk of many items and stores it in the james street basement or by the Jackson store. When an item nears its expiration date they sell it at a discount. When it passes the expiration date they sell it at an even larger discount.
I'm not who you think I am.

This I can not argue with. However what I can say is that they run out of yashon products faster then most stores in lakewood.  I've actually heard someone once says they only shop in a certain store because they have the freshest products. I occasionally shop in that store but for a completely different reason. They still have yashon products when everyone is out

Maybe fresh products (like bread) go fast, but their regular food is bought in bulk and stored away.

I'm not gonna keep arguing. Just do me a favor. Pay attention to the exp dates there vs everywhere else.

One thing I can say is that more tolaim shaylos come in for items from there than from most other Lakewood stores including times when flour there had issues but not anywhere else. My guess is that it depends on the items. Some items they buy in bulk as per Grodnoking, while some they have a higher turnover rate than other stores do to their sales volume. The two are not mutually exclusive.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
