Queens Jewish Center
Post-Pesach Shopping Info
The following is a list of stores that it is permissible to purchase chometz from, as the owners are not Jewish:
- A & P
- BJ’s Wholesale Club
- Duane Reade
- Key Food - Main Street & Union Turnpike
- Key Food - 69th Avenue & 164 Street
- King Kullen
- Rite Aid
- Sam’s Club
- Stop & Shop
- Trader Joes
*Note: Because one of the main distributors to supermarkets is Jewish-owned, it may be best to "stock up" on Chometz immediately after Pesach (from the above-approved stores) before the stores re-stock from Chometz which was owned or processed by the Jewish distributors during Pesach.
NOTE: Please be advised that this list is a list of stores we have confirmed through the Vaad Harabonim of Queens. Also, all VHQ supervised stores are permissible as well.
WARNING: We have been advised that the Key Food Supermarkets on or off of Queens Blvd. in Forest Hills and Met Food Supermarket on Queens Blvd. & 68th Avenue may be problematic and one is to avoid them for the near future. We have not been able to confirm any other non VHQ supermarkets in our area so it would be advisable to not purchase chometz products from these stores for the near future.
Limitations after Pesach apply only to the purchase of chometz. You can purchase Non-chometz items, including kitniyot, in any Jewish Owned Establishment, immediately after Pesach.
