  1. I don’t understand why this is so major? Did everyone forget we already have many supermarkets here that have been serving the olam for many years?
    They are acting like this is the first supermarket to ever open here and carry kosher food.

  2. I disagree with previous comments.
    Delicious food is available, convenient take-out is mizakeh the rabim. And what about the jobs they are providing.
    This is nothing less then a Kiddish Hashem. Let’s all wish them much Hatzlacha.

  3. Im really confused why did all these rabbanim and law enforsment attend its just a grocery store im mean whats the “majorr” deal ????. good luck wish u the best

  4. Apparently, it’s not worth posting the truth, especially when you’re dealing with a potentially big advertiser as opposed to the ones already here who haven’t advertised on this site in the past. As I said in my original post, which you won’t post- I am not related, nor do I work for the others.

    Shame on you-shame on them. Shame on what many of us have become, they have no concern for the next person anymore.

  5. Hatzlacha Rabbah I’m not concerned about other people losing parnasa, competition is the best thing for a business, and I am happy many more frum people will have parnasa, what I don’t think is fare is to introduce a whole new fressarai concept to Lakewood, hatzlacha

  6. Just for all the people that are worried about other stores losing “parnasah” do any of you know how much money is being spent a week on food?
