    it’s nice to see a store owner really listening to the public and taking action. I know it’s all for the bottom line, but it’s still very nice.

    great changes,

    Now, if he would only reduce his prices to be comparable with the collel store, we will be all set!

    Are they going to do something about the trucks double parking so cars can’t get past because of the new system? How about overnight/early morning/late night deliveries to reduce traffic congestion? It is outrageous to have vehicles backed up past Kingston to Albany because there are so many trucks delivering at the same time. I saw a police car stuck for 10 minutes & the driver was really annoyed too.

    Is Mr. Benabou is only interested in making money, not in being considerate to the public?

    they need more space at the vegetables!!!!!!!!!!! (take away a whole isle of shampoos, wipes pans etc. and make more room for vegetables)

    Leave it up to Itzik to see a difficult issue and come up with multiple solutions within a matter of hours. Itzik is a mover and a doer. Look how clean the store is, merchandise well stocked, aisles clear of debris. The staff has always been polite and helpful to me.

    EK rocks!

    i think you wrote it backwards, everyone runs to EK b/c lots of other stores charge double! (never mind that they’re always stocked, and provide really fast service….)

    I would love to shop at the other stores if they would also offer fresh meat, fresh produce, sale items, and I could either park there easily or fit my stroller inside the store. For many of us its not worth shopping in a minimum of 3 different stores every week.

    it means monopoly.
    can charge whatever they feel like.

    Sometimes, for convenience (I live around the corner from EK) it’s worth spending a little more money & not having to take an extra 40 minutes of driving + looking for parking if the parking lot is closed/full at KRM

    Great store, but  only supermarket?

    I love EK, great store good prices. easy shopping.
    However, I’m not sure what this article is trying ot accomplish by stating that it is the only supermarket in Crown Heights.
    What are the author’s requirements in order for a grocery to be considered a ‘supermarket’?

    who makes a sale with $20 of regular items and 2 limited per person??? you cant have it both ways when EK makes a sale they should only have the $20 purchase or limit 2 per customer otherwise there is no sale but end up spending more on the non-sale items then saving on the sale items

    great store

    in the end of the day I will shop EK only as I like the wide aisles..the spaciousness and selection…just the whole decor. I believe he is trying to emulate Pomegranate with his new store soon too open. if he does he will be hugely succesful as most people want that especially in CH. CH is more and more a more hip hood, lots of yuppies, lots of lubab yuppie types and lots and lots of families that want the pomegarnate or similair experience. Yes, those that want Kollel will and can shop there by all means..but there is a… Read more »

    When EK was Associated the delivery trucks use to use the driveway, to deliver behind the store, why cant they do that now?
