Crazy.
Come to England, walk into any Tesco or Asda etc and walk out with good 2 litre bottles of seltzer for 17p.

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.

My Pesach order was still done in KRM. I probably could have saved a little, but my wife did it during the day and delivery is still a major plus.
