Q. Kvod Harav,
I appreciate your column very much, giving people the ability to stay anonymous for sensitive shailos.
No Frills supermarket has a price match guarantee on any item in their store. Which means that if you show them on your phone that a different store has that item on sale for a cheaper price they’ll match it. I wanted to know is it a problem of a chillul Hashem to go through a whole shopping getting the sales of all supermarkets even though it causes shoppers behind me to wait as much as 4 minutes longer. ( the cashier has to get the supervisor to override each price match.) On a whole $200 shopping I could be saving as much as 60 dollars! Of course I apologize to the people behind me but sometimes I feel maybe as a yid who is being scrutinized to be on a higher level, I shouldn’t cause the people behind to wait a few minutes longer.
Thank you, Habayshan Halomed
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that you should try to do your shopping at the times when few shoppers are in the store and also to choose an empty line when possible.
It may also make a difference the amount of merchandise you are buying and if it is common on that store for others to do follow the same manner of purchase that you follow.
