  1. Are all Walmart stores OK to buy from, or just the one at the aforementioned location? If somebody knows for sure about the Walmarts in Chicago, please share the info.

  2. “Does anyone know if Publix stores are ok to buy from?”

    If it’s not on the list it is probably not permitted.

  3. Dear 100021:
    Your words are as clear and bubbly as the copious amounts of Be’er Mayim Chaim seltzer I drank over Pesach.
    However, I would like to point out one tiny error in your beautifully and well thought out thesis:
    In fact, it is permissible to purchase chometz items from Publix stores after Pesach.

  4. You posted both stop and shop and shaws.
    However, did not see either of those on any of the lists you provided. Do you have an alternate source?

  5. as per star-k – they are still researching whole foods. one should avoid purchasing chametz sheavar alav until they have confirmed.

  6. As per Star-k yesterday (4/19) one may not
    buy chometz from Whole Foods after Pesach
    this year as it is definitely problematic.
