The rumors circulating in the Five Towns turned out to be true as the discount kosher wholesaler Bingo is coming to Inwood as Bingo Wholesale has leased the 61,669-square-foot space in the Burnside Commons shopping plaza on Burnside Avenue that was occupied by Stop & Shop. It is expected to open for Passover next year, April 15, depending on when the required Town of Hempstead permits are approved.
Bingo Wholesale is a joint business venture between Brooklyn-based Marav USA and Osher As, a supermarket chain of 20 stores in Israel. Bingo opened in Brooklyn in 2016 and also has stores in Lakewood, N.J. and upstate Monsey.
The Inwood Stop & Shop closed on Oct. 29 and the next day a brand new 67,000-squre-foot Stop & Shop opened on Rockaway Boulevard in the Five Towns Shopping Center and is listed as being in Woodmere by Stop & Shop officials.
