Commack Kosher Caterers Closes – Got A Plan B?

Hailed as Suffolk’s lone kosher butcher, Commack Kosher Caterers Deli & Market is no longer in business.

A mainstay the Mayfair Shopping Center on Jericho Turnpike, the butcher had provided certified kosher meals to customers throughout the North Shore and even into the Hampton Bays. The shop closed its doors last week. 

According to Jewish Week, “several shoppers" said the "owner did not have enough customers to sustain his business.”

That puts those who keep kosher needing to come up with a Plan B. While some observant Jews may shop for kosher meat at ShopRite in Commack, others would need to travel into Nassau County, Newsday reported.

Which leads to the question to those keeping kosher: How are you managing now that Commack Kosher Caterers Deli & Market is no more?

It's sad. More so because as far as I know they hadn't done any viable marketing or advertising in years. You didn't have to keep kosher to appreciate their products, but it was easy to not think about them for months on end outside of holidays.

I liked Commack Kosher and the owner. Unfortunately, there is a lot more competition. Kosher food is available as Shop Rite locally, and in Plainview, elsewhere, Queens and beyond. I go to Queens at least once a month, as they have a much wider selection.

Part of the reason they closed was due to an increase in the rent. Although they will be missed I think the main focus here should be Why is the landlord raising the rents substantially when 1) Commack Butcher has been there for a very long time and 2) there are SO MANY empty stores once again.
