Food Stuff

Like to treasure hunt? Then drop by one of the area’s several locations of Grocery Outlet. This discount chain acquires excess stock, discontinued promotions, outdated packaging, seasonal items and company liquidations. When Webvan bit the dust, Grocery Outlet cleaned out the dot-gone’s warehouses. When put a million bottles up for auction, Grocery Outlet waved a bidding paddle. Then they pass the savings on to us, at an average discount of 40 percent off retail. Grocery Outlet offers dairy, meats, beverages, fresh produce, frozen foods, boxed and canned goods, gifts, household items, health aids and beauty supplies. You can find quirky regional brands that you wouldn’t normally see in these parts. The cashier’s receipt will indicate precisely how much you saved, which may be equal to how much you spent. Best of all, the company offers an unconditional money-back guarantee, making this treasure hunt completely risk-free.
