Competition is a good thing. Pesach food shopping is in full swing and the price wars have begun. The Lakewood supermarkets and grocery stores are advertising sales and specials on many products. Stores also are selling cheaper by the case at discounted prices. Options of ordering in bulk through the likes of Moadim L'simcha or local shuls also help ease the financial burden. Special Pesach circulars were sent out with many sale items for yom tov shopping. The addition of new supermarkets in Lakewood at least for now has brought down food prices and forced other stores to be competitive. Eventually prices will go up but for now food shopping has become somewhat affordable.
