Throughout the pandemic, Korshak Bagels functioned exclusively as a takeout establishment, utilizing an online ordering system for customer pickups. In recent weeks, Mr. Korshak had been active on Instagram, updating patrons on the business’s return to a COVID-safe operational mode and the reintroduction of online ordering services.

Korshak’s announcement garnered nearly 500 comments on Instagram, where Philadelphia locals praised his store and paid their condolences. Arguably, this was the best bagel shop in the area and this was reflected with hundreds of online reviews who clearly thought the same.
