Most of the stuff that they sell private label (not talking electronics) is just some heimishe company private labeling.
They have good hashgacha. I forgot the name now. Nirbater?
The electronics is also a hemishe company private labeling for them and they sell them below cost
I know on the hot plate they are selling $5 below cost

Loss leaders need to make sense. They sell so much that they can't swallow too many loss leaders, no matter how deep their pockets are.

On a side note: my usual supermarket suddenly has some normal specials. They usually don't have on more than an item or two stupid specials. Obviously they aren't amazing, but still something. Pretty clear who is responsible.

I said it in the past and I'll say it again. The prices will be going up it's a gimmick they successfully did in Israel too, unbelievable prices in the beginning and then continously raise the price to profitable levels.

i hope that those aren't soda-stream filled bottles by working kids in China. The other BluPantry electronics are from China. Where are these (12/$1.99?) .17 per bottle items being bottled? What does it say on the label.

(And more importantly, who gives the KFP hashgocha?)

Do you know of any electronics still made in the US? If so, that's the exception to the rule.

normal daily electronics are fine because we usually turn them off, of they give off less heat (lamp, coffee maker, etc...)

A hot plate that has exposed 200 degree elements for 25+ hrs straight would need to be top quality for most of us to feel safe enough to sleep while it's on all night.
(i.e. the Anova sous vide, which we keep on for 36-48 hrs sometimes immersed in water is made in the USA)

That's why the game their playing isn't fair. To offer stuff at below profitable levels just because you have deep pockets isn't fair. The hate that's going around against the local grocers as if they're ripping off their customers is misplaced.

It is illegal to lower prices below cost in order to put competition out of business, and in a limited (small) market you can actually get in trouble for this (because in order to be charged you need very clear results of the actions, and here if other stores close down, we will have clear results). I hope they know what they're doing.

I'm not who you think I am.

It also violates anti-trust laws

Interesting. The prices clearly seem they're below cost...

Seems very unlikely that they could actually be charged with anti trust violations

"Predatory pricing practices may result in antitrust claims of monopolization or attempts to monopolize. Businesses with dominant or substantial market shares are more vulnerable to antitrust claims. However, because the antitrust laws are ultimately intended to benefit consumers, and discounting results in at least short-term net benefit to consumers, the U.S. Supreme Court has set high hurdles to antitrust claims based on a predatory pricing theory. The Court requires plaintiffs to show a likelihood that the pricing practices will affect not only rivals but also competition in the market as a whole, in order to establish that there is a substantial probability of success of the attempt to monopolize.[4] If there is a likelihood that market entrants will prevent the predator from recouping its investment through supra competitive pricing, then there is no probability of success and the antitrust claim would fail. In addition, the Court established that for prices to be predatory, they must be below the seller's cost."
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.
