HI, I am planning to drive into Brooklyn to shop for pesach. I have never been to Bingo, but was thinking it may be the cheapest option. Has anyone been there lately, can I get most of my pesach shopping done there? are the prices good?

Thanks so much!

Yes, the prices are good. The problem is that they don't offer free delivery. The store is not as busy as stores with a low fee delivery charge.

The only issue I have is the Cholov Yisroel Yogurts specifically, the prices are cheaper. However I sometimes find that the expiration dates are better in other stores. For Pesach, However, I am sure that the yogurts will have to be fresher since they didn't make Kosher for Pesach yogurts two months ago.

Thanks for the response. Since I live in NJ, the lack of delivery is a non issue for me, I just want to know I can get everything there!

I was there today. They do seem to have most of the KLP foods. However, I was not impressed with the prices. I usually shop at Gourmet Glatt and the prices seemed comparable to me. Some of the specials were good, but I see those at other stores as well.

I was there yesterday too, after spending upwards of 500 at KRM, just to see how it compares.

KRM had everything on my list except for Chareidim Matza, which they only had the broken, Cider Vinegar and the plastic containers of ground nuts.

KRM had every brand of the good kosher cookies- Oberlander and Hagada brands, and everything else I wanted. Bingo had their own brand of cookies (one type) in a choice of bright yellow, bright pink and bright green. Nauseating looking.

I walked through the aisles of Bingo and wouldnt have gotten most of what was on my list there. No Pesach dried fruit, no Pesach whole nuts in plastic containers like KRM had. I ended up buying a different brand of Shmura Matzah (they opened a box to show how thin it is) there though at a very good price.

A few questions about Bingo:


1- Boxes of Oberlander and Hagada coookies range in price from 6 to 9 depending on which store. How much is a similar size box in Bingo?

Im glad to hear they got cookies other than bright green bright pink and bright yellow nauseatingly heavily colored ones!

2- Do they have containers of ground nuts that everyone uses for baking, reasonably priced?

3- Are the stainless pots they sell decent quality?

I just went Friday for the first time. I was very impressed the store is very big easy to shop. The parking I think is the best in Borough Park . The prices were very good.They had electrical appliances, dishes, tons of other items. The had Heimish brands and regular like Manisevitz items. Lots of interesting things that I never saw before from Israel. The meat was well priced and fresh. The check out lines very quick. I will certainly go back there!
