  1. It’s all just one avleh after another. No one has to agree with me as I don’t really care but I know I am right. Fact is, all the stores owned by our very own layman and askonim who for years have done so much for our town are all hurting so badly as a result of these big stores owned by wealthy people OUT of our town, that come here and open up. In my humble opinion its a huge avleh…There isn’t a market in this town for more stores to attract NEW customers… It just means that other stores will continue to lose more customers and thus more business. There’s a reason why NPGS closed down and it wasn’t because they couldn’t handle the amount of business.

    • Ahh thats right there were always Yidden in Toms River… Cross Street always had new developments… Satmer and Viznitz always had communities here … not growing at all…right

  2. The lowest prices should win. Finished. End of story. The avlah was that Moish Binik AH was not allowed to open in Lakewood and he was the lowest prices of all.

    • Binik A”H was very ehrlich and that is why he did not open in town. he understood how it might harm the existing businesses. The lowest prices does not mean that overall the town will save. it means many sectors of the town like the mosdos and organizations will be shortchanged.

  3. Gourmet glatt has surely cornered the market in its existing store on Madison.
    Very large space well stocked and well run. I’m sure a good portion of Lakewood residents from all neigborhoods make it a regular shopping destination .
    Why o why expand or flex financial muscle to an already very competitive market. There move to the doorstep of two existing businesses will definitely reduce existing river ave stores daily sales,
    especially with the expanding toms river population .
    Have a heart and be content with what you already have!

  4. @Cool Masmid and @Joe – ur both wrong. There are different markets for different people. Lowest prices DONT always win. If it’s a miserable place to shop, some people will pay more for better customer service i.e. – have someone pack their bags and maybe even help shlep it to the car. Plus cleaner aisles and better selection. Yes, NPGS is the cheapest but that doesn’t mean everyone is gonna shop there. Gourmet Glatt realizes this and is capitalizing on it.

  5. why is everyone crying about NPGS closing that location,whats the big deal so they had 4 locations & now they have 3 like seriously chill out
