What are your thoughts about this whole thing? Who is right? And if u say that the supermarkets r right will u boycott the magazines till this fight is settled ?January 26, 2017 6:11 am at 6:11 am #1211397☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
They’re both trying to make money. They’re both using tactics which they think will ultimately be best for their bottom lines.
I love the way the commenters all think they know how much money the grocers and publishers are making, and think that somehow, if they are making a lot of money, that’s a crime.
There’s competition in both, and as far as I’m concerned, as long as they act within the bounds of halachah (including dina d’malchusa), I don’t have any taynas on them, although my own best interest is the lowest possible prices.January 26, 2017 12:05 pm at 12:05 pm #1211398👑RebYidd23Participant
Until I saw the letter, I didn’t take a side, but that pointless black box on the letter from the grocers convinced me that the newspapers are right.January 26, 2017 12:34 pm at 12:34 pm #1211399zahavasdadParticipant
I just think its funny that , the article about selling newspapers and magazines in Borough park, generated more comments than almost all the other articles for the last week combined.January 26, 2017 1:20 pm at 1:20 pm #1211400TheGoqParticipantJanuary 26, 2017 1:34 pm at 1:34 pm #1211401☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
We’re getting contradictory stories here. Did the stores want lower wholesale costs or higher retail costs?January 26, 2017 6:37 pm at 6:37 pm #1211402–Participant

To the public they claim they want lower wholesale costs but that doesn’t make sense. (Imagine them saying “Expenses have gone up throughout our operations so publishers need to lower their prices”)January 27, 2017 1:53 am at 1:53 am #1211403LightbriteParticipant
So interesting that this happened!
