Bulk Indian grocery purchase - Jackson Heights or Edison, NJ

Here is the question from my Indian colleague's wife (a family of 2 adults and one toddler).

Looks like, she is used to stocking up their grocery once or twice a year in India. Now that she has moved to the US (and its not as easy here as in India), she plans to make her yearly purchase during Diwali season (which is I think is second or third week of November). She expects some deals in Indian grocery stores. She figured out that there are many stores in Jackson Heights, NYC and Edison, NJ (They live in Central Westchester).

The question is, which is the best place to buy i.e. where she will end up saving more money? Her list is like 60-lbs of Rice, 60 lbs of flour, a total of 100 lbs of many lentils etc. etc. Are there any Indian grocery stores that advertise deals on the web?

Thank you very much.
