Enzo's maybe open but they increased their prices. How is that for a community pulling together
elaine sedan November 03, 2012 at 01:35 PM
Angelos in matawan is open...better pizza...10$ pies for the duration! Jus...saying. AND they are feeding first responders and matching donations to continue to do so. Please pick up only.
James Monroe November 03, 2012 at 02:26 PM
Well, we should all pull together as a community and remember these price gouging businesses. Boycott these businesses! I will never go to them again. The same goes for Liberty Mutual!! Slipping in Hurricane clauses without anyone realizing. 5% of value of policy. That means our deductible is about $13,000.00. Oh yeah, you read that right! SCREW YOU LIBERTY MUTUAL!!!
Karen Mangione November 03, 2012 at 02:32 PM
Please report price gouging at Enzos and yes boycott
Matt Masiello November 03, 2012 at 02:59 PM
I believe Sandy is classified as a tropical storm. You may have a way around that 5%
Donna November 03, 2012 at 03:25 PM
Livoti's is open and selling HOT food as well as other things. Had dinner from there twice THANK YOU LIVOT'S
NyPudge November 03, 2012 at 03:44 PM
Didn't realize that Enzo's has done that!!! I looked at the menu. A regular pie is $11.75. They charged my wife $15. I'll never eat there again! Their pizza isn't even all that good!!!

Nancy Tronio Guntner November 03, 2012 at 09:05 PM
Enzo's. raise your prices now?? I think it's disgusting. You should be ashamed if yourselves. What are you doing for the community? Oh wait your raising prices? I would never ever eat at your establishment ever. I hope you close!! !!!
jen November 03, 2012 at 09:11 PM
don't worry! i think it's great you were open and giving hot food during the storm. raising the price to cover the cost of gas is completely understandable. i never had the chance to get a pie from you but driving through matawan and seeing your place open and people smiling walking out of the store was a nice sight to see during such a depressing time.
George F November 03, 2012 at 11:21 PM
I think raising prices slightly to cover gas/generator and supply cost is fair...BUT, i will also say that other establishments, including a pizza place in Hazlet didn't raise there prices. INSTEAD, they were tipped very nicely by all the patrons who understood their sacrifice for staying open and working on generators.
Wanda November 04, 2012 at 06:36 AM
James, the weather channel and media seemed to be calling this storm "superstorm" sandy, and said that it was not technically a hurricane because of the air pressure or something. But now the media seems to be calling it hurricane. If it is NOT technically a hurricane, I don't think they can use that hurricane deductible. We should all look into it.
Kimberly Belotti November 04, 2012 at 07:41 AM
I am sure it is tough, it is tough all around. You weren't the only business open & for everyone's information; it is illegal to raise prices more then 10% in cases such as this storm, so as long as price increases were within that then you are correct & no one should mention it as that allowance for increase is for extra effort needed. There are judgements made for additional costs for above 10% increase if needed too. Maybe if you had simply informed customers that due to scarce supplies our company has a temporary price increase to cover the additional cost of goods & will return to our regular prices once this situation is better...something like that would have let customers know. It just seems you were very quick to attack people for complaining & as a business owner either ignore people if they are being unfairly critical because some people are just complainers or find a way to rise above it & treat everyone w/ respect that you wished the complainers showed you. All of us are angry & hurting but for a business to continue attacking customers won't get understanding & it will hurt the business' reputation. It is a shame, when I have dealt w/ your place in the past, people were polite & efficient. FYI on price gouging..for everyone that commented, customer and Enzo...http://www.nj.gov/oag/newsreleases12/pr20121030a.html
Kimberly Belotti November 04, 2012 at 07:49 AM
This storm WAS a Hurricane but the NWS declared it something downgraded an hour before it made landfall. NO insurance companies CAN NOT apply the hurricane deductible right now. Go to the division of Consumer Affairs. The deductible rate difference are standards and there is GREAT information on the department of banking & insurance web page on how to understand all types of insurance. Insurance companies have a many policy standards that they don't point out, explain, or tell you about alternatives. http://www.njconsumeraffairs.gov/index.htm http://www.state.nj.us/dobi/index.html

Enzo's charged us $18 for a pepperoni pie so I'm not sure where $15 is coming from.
PARK PLAZA PHARMACY November 04, 2012 at 02:33 PM
Joan Scottodifrega November 04, 2012 at 02:54 PM

A salute to all the small business owners who have opened to serve the community at a time when they, too, have their own issues and families at home. Thank you, businesses. Please keep announcing your openings.
Tara Lalevee November 04, 2012 at 06:19 PM
enzo.s just buried themselves. Attilios on MORRISTOWN is the best pizza around. V and F by the AP is good too. Both are open!
NyPudge November 04, 2012 at 07:20 PM
Glad to see that some businesses decided to keep their prices as is. Hope no one got taken advantage of during this horrific time.
Drew November 07, 2012 at 03:30 AM
Mr. Enzo appears to be a very wealthy man. I have seen his beautiful cars. He could probably have afforded to do the 10 dollar pie thing like the pizza place on 79. They put a GREAT name out there for themselves. This was a time to come together and help out the community in a time of need which would have put a good name out there for his business. Instead it seems as though he wanted to make as much money as possible. Well, now he may be slapped with a nice fine for his 25% increase!!
Drew November 07, 2012 at 03:34 AM
you may think you were the only ones open during the storm; however that is not at all tru... I GUESS YOU GUYS WERE BLINDED BY THE MONEY !!!
Ginger Lazzaro November 08, 2012 at 05:50 PM
I was going to respond to Melissa, but I just can't...you're just entirely too rude (even when I came in & paid $15 for the mediocre pie Melissa was rude), ignorant & stupid for me to bother with other than to say I just reported Enzo's for price-gouging. I live on Mill & will NEVER patronize Enzo's again & I've made sure to tell everyone I know in this area about your disgusting ways.
