POMEGRANATE

On the corner of AVE. L and Coney Island AVE. there is a new store opening. Its name is Pomegranate. I don't think I could pick a better name for it. Its just Pomegranate no special reason for it. Maybe "The Pomegranate" would be better, but what would it symbolize. Besides that its got its name in big red letters with a picture of a pomegranate on it and for some odd reason they put up their address 1507 in big red letters too, probably so you don't forget where they are located.

Where it is located used to be many different stores. One was "THE BIGGEST PESACH STORE EVER". (that's its name that whole capitalized thing). It was opened all year long. That's a good reason why it closed down. Before that there was a sukkah store it also shut down for the same reason. You are most likely thinking "no it was sukkah store half the year and the other Pesach" well sorry these stores were opened for at least a whole year both. (not together, independently)

About this new store Pomegranate, I don't have a clue what is going to be. I am getting tons of different information about it and each person is telling me about how they "personally" know the owner. They give me a gantze megillah about how the know a guy who knows another guy who has a brother that went to the country with another guy who knows the owner of this place, and I'm wondering how they personally know him.

So one person says its a mall with a bunch of little Jewish stores in it. Another says its a big supermarket like Walmart. Once I got this answer that its going to be this huge complex, with a grocery store in it and a fleishig restaurant with a bakery and a Dougies or another famous Jewish eatery and probably a sweet choice (which is right next door anyway). This last one I am doubting but who knows.

I usually am not the one to know things right away.There are those who do, they are the machers I am not one. Does anyone really know what its going to be? and please state a source from where you know it. With a name like Pomegranate you never know what its going to be.

Well, I heard from a reliable source that they plan on closing down within the year like all the others.

Selling Pomegranates all year long isnt going to do much for its cause

None of those stores closed down. It was same owner and still is, change of name was due to the usual "Jewish Business" practices. One of their cashiers and several other people said it's gonna be a bigger version of the old store and gonna include a bakery, bigger take out, I think also restaurant.

Thanks for the info on it and do you know why it is called Pamegranate?

I heard, similar to what Moshe said, that it's going to be a bigger version of the old store (Kosher Discount Supermarket) and Pomegranate is the name of the restaurant included in the store.

I don't know what its going to be, I know it will be kosher. But whatever it will be it sounds good.

LOL- lemme add to the list of rumors. I heard it's gonna be a kosher Whole-Foods style store.
But I don't know the owner personally, don't hold me to it ;)
