Hi
We are visiting Lakewood from out of town. I am assuming some Jewish foods like chicken/meat are significantly cheaper and would like to bring back a few coolers worth of stuff to hopefully get us through Pesach. What’s the best store for a stock up shopping in bulk?

But different stores will have different meats on sale, so I would visit a few 8f you're buying so much.

Well, I can almost guarantee- whatever prices are, they are worse OOT.

Bingo but I don’t love their stuff. Next best is evergreen. Shockingly aisle 9 in Jackson (which I do not like, nor has good prices on groceries) has a small bit well priced chicken and meat dept

My mother always shops the sales when she comes. Check the weekly to see what’s on sale at which store.

I would not stock up on bingo meat and chicken before tasting it and deciding if you like it.
The chicken is rubbery and chewy
And the meat just never becomes soft, x matters for how long you cook it

I live OOT and for years have stocked up on Lakewood meats and dry goods, especially in buying for Pesach. Here's what I find:

Costco is probably still best in price and quality for chicken. Gourmet Glatt or Evergreen chicken is good, and if price is competitive, I'll get that. (A few years back, Bingo changed suppliers for chicken, and I am not happy with the quality.). I'm also going to see if Lakewood (actually Brick) Costco has KLP sausage or hot dogs in yet when I go.

Recently, Gourmet Glatt has had the better prices on beef, but it varies, and it pays to shop around from week to week.

Our rav says raw meat doesn't need a Pesach hechsher, just rinse with cold water to be on the safe side.

Dry goods -- mostly Bingo. Look for marinara sauce, some canned fruits and veggies (tomatoes), spices, extra light olive oil, tuna, chocolate bars -- those come out KLP early, and keep well. Candy and chocolate often go on sale in Adar, too.

If you come in Nissan, look at shmura matza prices, you'll save quite a bit compared to OOT.

Happy shopping!
