Get Lost in this Supermarket
Everyone loves a bargain (especially moms) and you’ll find plenty of family- friendly deals at Grocery Outlet, the chain of “extreme-value” stores that has more than 20 locations in Washington. The newest shop, which opened on May 6, in Seattle is located in the Crown Hill neighborhood (8700 15th Ave NW). Grocery Outlet is not unlike a clothing outlet in that manufacturers who need to get rid of excess inventory sell their products to them at pennies on the dollar. What this means is that you get a deep discount on whatever they happen to have in the store, which also means that you have to shop Grocery Outlet when you have the time to browse all the aisles and ferret out the deals that are of most value to you. Grocery Outlet also re-labels or re-packages products based on the manufacturer’s needs. So a name-brand item that perhaps can’t be sold due to a label glitch might be re-packaged and sold by Grocery Outlet. Basically, you never know what you’ll find.
