BINGO! Supermarket In Boro Park Now Selling Shtreimels For $499 Will this be the End of the $2,500.00 rip Off Shtreimals?
Some folks love Bingo, and some hate it.
Those who love it enjoy paying super low prices on their groceries, while those who hate it appear to be many local store-owners who have been severely impacted.
The massive 70,000 square foot store, located at 60th Street and 13th Avenue since November 2016, is huge and spacious, and targets the price conscious and the bulk buyers, especially the many large families in the area and beyond.
But soon after opening, Bingo began expanding into fields other then groceries. They sold Lulavim and Esrogim, they had a live Chicken center for Kapparos, they sold menorah accessories for Chanukah, and now – they are selling SHTREILMELS!
Not only have they branched into all these new fields, but when doing them, they have undercut any business that had been selling those items, effectively transforming the industries.
It appears that the Shtreimel operation is no different – as the price for a Shtreimel is $499. A cheap (“Raigen Shtreimel / Rain Shtreimel) costs around $1400, and a decent Shtreimel can cost anywhere from $2,500 to a whopping $5,500.
