Statement from NPGS

NPGS announced the following today: NPGS has been serving the Lakewood community for more than thirty years, with great prices, convenient locations, and advanced Kashrus.

NPGS began when Lakewood consisted of but a few hundred families, when there were no kosher supermarkets. It was hard to get basic Kosher products, especially in one location. As Lakewood grew, so did NPGS, first with one location in what was then the Shoprite Plaza, and then to 231 Main Street. A second location was opened in Jackson and the third location on James Street. The motto was always the same: Keep the prices as low as possible, don’t waste the consumers money with large expenses, sell products that have the highest Kashrus standards, and try to employ as many frum Yidden as possible.

As Lakewood expanded south, NPGS opened a branch in Southern Lakewood, in Seagull Square. Seeing that this fourth location was draining the ability to supply the stores with NPGS’s signature Shechita of meat and poultry, and keeping up the NPGS standards in four stores, NPGS has decided to cut back and remain strong in the three original stores.

NPGS intends on upgrading all of the stores with updated design, offering delivery service and superior customer service from all its locations. At the same time, NPGS intends on keeping the store fully fit for the very Choshuv and distinguished Lakewood community.

Thus, NPGS at Seagull Square will be closing on Friday, Rosh Chodesh Av. During the week, all customers will receive 20% off all purchases in the store (besides for sale items). There will be no returns on the purchases made during the week.

The 20% sale will include all fresh and frozen products, all groceries, baby items, baking supplies, paper and aluminum goods, toys, batteries and so much more.

NPGS thanks you for your business in the Seagull Square store and invites these customers and the whole Lakewood to the 3 magnificent NPGS locations. NPGS wishes to thank the entire community for all its support for so many years. BE”H, we should be zoche to see the coming of Moshiach.

  1. I think it’s crazy that shopping has to be an experience. Thanks npgs for trying to keep this town a little normal. And yes, its nice to know that in Npgs there are less women that are dressed like who knows what than some other stores in this town, for those that believe in hell.

  2. It’s a sad day, Mishnichnas Av m’matim bsimcha. It’s so fitting that NPGS should be closing a store on this day, as it signifies a capitulation to the the downgraded ruach of the town.

  3. Overall, NPGS is a great store, huge selection, quality products and excellent pricing.
    @eli g – That was an odd comment. Keep in mind, it’s very important you take those meds at the times as prescribed by ur Dr. Even missing one dose will have an adverse effect on you. As is clearly evident.

  4. To Eli:
    Please use nicer language when you are talking to another human being.
    When judging, please give people the benefit of the doubt.

  5. NPGS actually first started over 40 years ago in the basement of Yeshiva Apartments on 9th Street. It was only open a few hours a day, with men’s hours during Bain Hasedorim and women’s hours later in the evening. In the beginning you needed to have a membership card which was only available to Yeshivaleit.

  6. It’s called winning the battle but losing the war. NPGS wanted to raise the standard to befit the yungerleit who shop there, which is very admirable.In doing so, however, they drove many people to the other stores. The day they stopped carrying Pride of the Farm milk is when I started shopping elsewhere. Other brands and products that were kept out of NPGS elevated the standards but caused customers to shop at places where the standards were even lower. חכם עיניו בראשו.

  7. @Beauty you’re comment was nasty, especially this time of year.
    I hope you beg for forgiveness, for your Immature not-beauty comments.

  8. Npgs reminds me of the good old days of what once used to be in my opinion there is no need for any upgrades whoever shops there obviously appreciates the ruach and a sense of normal who are we fooling anyway? Why is there such a need for a fashion show every time we enter a store ? Npgs we wish you all the bracha and hatzlacha you deserve it

  9. @Beauty, you must either be a man that enjoys seeing people dressed in an untznius manner or you are a lady. In either case, a good point was made here regarding what NPGS offers for the frumer people that want less challenges in Yiras Shamayim.
    I as a non bearded more with-it male, find it horrifying how people walk around this town. We are not talking regular short or fitted clothing anymore, and I am not Mr. Yeshivish!

  10. @eli g u are totally correct. Whoever disagrees isn’t being honest with themselves. The truth hurts. NPGS has tried to keep to the proper values even though they could’ve gone with the trends….. and yes where does it say to dress up as if ur going to a wedding when u do ir shopping….

  11. Does nobody here care about the quality of the products sold….cause for me and everyone I know that is the deciding factor where we shop, and consequently which stores are ultimately successful
