FROM THE KIB on April 23, 2009: ·
At this time it is best not to buy Chometz from Smart and Final stores.

All RCC-supervised establishments have sold their Chometz and one may buy from them after Pesach.
The RCC was not successful in convincing 99 Cent Only Stores to do a Mechira this year. Additionally, a Mechirah was done for the following establishments*:

  • Erewhon
  • Sadaf / Soofer Company
  • Wine & Liquor Depot
  • West Pico Foods
    (*in accordance with Igros Moshe Vol.1 resp. 149 ; vol.2 resp. 91 and other Poskim. See Piskei Teshuvos 448-83)

Ed. note: Check with your local rabbinical authority regarding establishments in your community.
