I was there around 2pm today. Quite manageable. I actually got more of my Pesach shopping done than I expected to.

Some items had misleading or missing prices (clear plastic plates and bowls had a price which I understood to be a case price, but was actually a unit price). Plastic bowls and plates by the case Bingo brand (as opposed to BluShine or Basix brands which are sold in bags of 125) didn't have a price listed.

I liked finding oil under supervision of בד״ץ עדה החרדית ירושלים.

When I was mostly done, I had my son wait on line, while I got some small items here and there. Overall was quite an efficient shopping experience. They didn't have EVERYTHING I would buy for Pesach. But definitely saved me trips (and probably money).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Went to Gourmet Glatt tonight at 7PM. Pretty empty. No lines at all, very few loaded carriages. I'm sure they are feeling it

KRM had 2 hour wait for cashier today and no "case" delivery until tomorrow.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

When I was there, the wait wasn't more than 10 minutes. The delayed boxes are likely because they're messed up.

They were dead before Bingo.

I was in Bingo now. The lines are insane. The store itself is totally manageable and doesn't seem so packed, but then you reach the checkout lanes.... At least 10 people with huge wagons at each of the 16 (the customer service desk was used as well) checkout lanes.

I just had a few items and managed to pay quickly. Went to the customer service line on a hunch, a few minutes before a huge line formed there. Nevermind an Israeli couple paid a $300 order mostly in singles right in front of me. The managers wanted to kill that lady. So did I. It took her 15 minutes to pay.

You do make a valid point that explains the disparity.
People were done already mostly with the shopping after midnight and only the bottleneck remained.

Things are organized completely differently than a whole year, so you can't expect to know where everything is. If you go through the aisles, you should find what you need I think.
Produce and dairy are unchanged.

their aisles are wider than any other NY store that I've seen. Can probably fit 3 carts side by side in some of the aisles. Smooth, clean floors and organized shelves. (But that was 2 wks before purim). THey'll be back to the shelving in 10 days, i'm sure.
