Joseph-Gourmet Glatt in Lakewood is very possibly the country’s busiest Kosher store(or Evergreen in Monsey).
Uncle Ben-From Reisterstown down Smith for close to 3 miles past Bais Yaakov is now Jewishincluding most side streets. Greenspring until I-95 is Jewish including most of the side streets besides for some of Quarry Beazer.The Willowglen, Pickwick, Ranchleigh, Cross Country, and Cheswolde are Jewish. Increasingly toward Beth Tfiloh and Old Court Crossing by Beazer are Jewish. So probably over half of the Jewish population resides closer to the Shoppers location. Also the more toward and into the county you go the average income goes up. A great deal of these people have moved here in the past 5 years and don’t have the loyalty to Seven Mile the previous generation had, and they would go to an all kosher supermarket closer to them.
Dr. E-Shoppers is dealing with each store separately and not selling them all at once. Around a quarter of the people in the store even now are Jewish and unless they are shopping for pepperoni or pork there isn’t much of a reason that they wouldn’t keep on shopping at the same location, unless a GG would jack up the prices a lot compared to what shoppers prices are now(not too great). And in generalthe more stores a chain has the better of they do as long as they don’t make crazy decisionsAugust 8, 2019 7:13 am at 7:13 am in reply to: Gourmet Glatt moving to Baltimore #1771448
I am aware of the seagull square opening,but do you have a valid source confirming its not moving to BaltimoreAugust 7, 2019 7:56 pm at 7:56 pm in reply to: Gourmet Glatt moving to Baltimore #1771382
Seasons was in a horrible location and charged 3 times the price. Gourmet Glatt would have much to gain in terms of profit by moving to Baltimore, making it well worth their while to become the second viable grocery option in Baltimore. Shoppers location is so prime, and the amount of existing goyish customers it would keep from the current Shoppers might put it ahead of Seven Mile which presumably does at least as much business as Gourmet Glatt Cedarhurst. So yes it’s worth it, the question is it trueAugust 6, 2019 6:02 pm at 6:02 pm in reply to: Gourmet Glatt moving to Baltimore #1770800
I think it was more than a rumor.If anyone knows anyone at Gourmet Glatt that would know this,can you please ask. And if the answer is no, tell them that there is a great opportunity to make this their second-busiest store (after Lakewood),due to the very young community that has sprung up around the smith area.June 30, 2019 1:45 am at 1:45 am in reply to: How Shidduchim became a beauty pageant contest. #1749326
I find it hard to beleive that Rav Yaakov held boys shouldnt go away for mesivta ,was due to the fact that these boys should sit on the opposite couch and stare at his sisters friends.Either let them interact freely or not at all,dont go half way and pretend they will learn of the feminine personality by being in the same house.But by the thought process you are describing after a few dates the boy should stop asking to see a picture of the girl because he will of learned to appreciate a feminine personality.I think the bigger problem is a boy is worried that even though he finds the girl he is dating physically attractive,he is more worried about what his friends/mother/sister will think of them and be embarrassed that “thats all he can get”.So if you fix that problem than I think you will have a solutionJune 18, 2019 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm in reply to: Whats Baltimore like nowadays.Still OOT or suitable for intown fam #1744218
I would consider it but I hear the schools are better in Baltimore than Chicago and its also growing at a much faster clip than Chicago so it would make more sense moving there as people are comparing it to Monsey of the early 2000’sJune 17, 2019 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm in reply to: Whats Baltimore like nowadays.Still OOT or suitable for intown fam #1743734
