Have your say about high prices and removing import blockades by 6 Dec 2013

In the past I have posted on Naftali Bennett’s plan to lower import taxes which will allow freer import of goods that will eventually lower prices.  Yair Lapid announced the lowering of taxes on imported canned tuna, for example.  Now Misrad Hakalkala is calling on you to give them advice- what do you think of the process?  How should it work?  What prices should be lowered next?  Whatever you have to say, they want to hear.

Send your ideas, comments, advice and more

The Cofix revolution marches on

In case you have been living under a rock (or just started reading my posts), you know about the Cofix revolution- everything in the store is 5 shekels- coffee, sandwiches, fresh-squeezed orange juice, yogurt with granola, focaccia…you get the picture.  In response to the huge amount of business Cofix has generated for itself, some stores have introduced a 5 shekel menu and some stores sent undercover workers and reported that Cofix’s sandwiches are not fresh.  Cofix vehemently denies this claim, stating that their inventory does not last that long in the store.  Some reviewers love their products, some hate them, but the people on the street seem to love them because the lines are long and Cofix has announced the opening of 5 new stores; Ha’arbaa Street and Herzl/Halevy Street in Tel Aviv, Givatayim, Netanya and Rishon L’Zion.  The Ha’arbaa Street one opened this week.  It is right across the street from the Cinematheque.  I tried it out today- I bought fresh squeezed orange juice (I watched them squeeze it) and a focaccia bread with roasted vegetables.  The food was fresh and delicious and the prices are at least half that of the other stores in the area.  The chayalim in the area flocked to the store and grabbed the chairs outside.  All in all, I can’t see a reason to go elsewhere.

What are you doing at 4pm in Tel Aviv?

I stumbled across a really nice Facebook group which lists everything that is going on in Tel Aviv after 4pm- that is, from when the kids are home from school until dinner time.

‎מה עושים היום ב-4?‎

Here is a sample of today’s schedule:

As you can see, it lists the time, place, phone number, appropriate ages and price.

This is a great resource for anyone in Tel Aviv-enjoy!
