 From my chat with Discover card:
 After reviewing the rewards I do show that Bingo Wholesale will count as a wholesale club and will receive the 5% for this quarter. So no worries, you will receive the 5% for this kind of purchase.

Was in KRM. They are quite busy. Not crazy. They likely took a big hit, but he doesn't need Tomchei Shabbos.

I heard today of a big company that they are boycotting because they made private label for Bingo. I don't know all the details because they obviously carry many other companies that did the same thing.
No one has pity on KRM as when they opened everyone was upset at them and they didn't care. So now they are feeling what the other stores felt when they opened.

And others say the same things about supermarkets that killed some fruit stores, butchers, fish stores, and takeouts, when they went from only being a grocery to selling everything. They even compete with hardware stores and pharmacies.

i don't think that it would make sense for KRM to boycott a big company because:
1) Those products still bring in profits for KRM
2) If these items are missing from KRM, then after a while, people may not be able to keep shopping there if basic weekly purchases aren't available any more.

There are competitors with similar items. It's a Nosh company.

All 15 cash registers open. With 5 full wagons at each register. Bad situation.
Just saw this thread now for the first time... Was there last Wed and checked out around 11:30... Should have had a DO while waiting in line...

I retract this. Someone else told me that it's not true.

heard this when Bingo opened, but KRM since changed the strategy and tried to fight back with specials.

Let just say what I heard from 2 vendors, that while KRM "has" to get it cheaper then all other groceries, they sell it at the same price, keeping all profits to himself, Bingo gives it cheaper to the clients splitting the profit.

When KRM started to become a big player, he understood that only he is allowed to get it cheaper and everyone else should be upset, now when Bingo opened he found himself in the same boat

KRM is cheaper than all the other groceries. The argument against them was that they make the same 40% markup as all, while they just get them for cheaper because they buy so much.

Depends what items.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

better to shop during business hours (for those who work/self-employed). I was first surprised to see so many men shopping there, then I realized that many ladies don't drive their household's cars, so they come in the evenings with their husbands who drive them (or a car service).
Probably at 10:00 am it's less crowded and busy. Try tomorrow morning, as it's Wednesday. Thursday and Friday will be packed.

Was there at 12.05am place was a zoo, empty shelves.
What I find hard is that this place can't be your on stop shopping place. They don't carry lots of items, as opposed to KRM that has all you need.
