This Grocery Store Chain is Opening Up 35+ New Locations
Costco and Walmart specialize in their low-cost brands Kirkland and Great Value. Everyone likes to save money this way, but one expanding grocery store chain takes it to another level and has just taken it to a new location. And even more new stores are coming!
It’s been in business for 75 years, selling military food surplus items at first, and now operates stores in six states, including California, Washington, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Idaho, and Nevada. But the chain is busy looking to the future while still offering 40-70% off on name-brand items and produce. Grocery Outlet just opened its 10th store in Idaho, but the Hailey supermarket is also the 400th, according to Supermarket News.

It’s all part of the 10% a year growth plan put into place in the last few years. Between the beginning of 2021 and April 3, the chain opened 10 new stores and closed one, bringing its total to 389. Then came another wave of store openings, most recently in Cathedral City, Calif. on June 17, Tillamook, Ore. and Hailey, Idaho on June 24, and coming soon — an Oceanside Calif. store opening on July 2.
In the next few months, expect to see more Grocery Outlet new store openings totaling up to 38, with at least two near Philadelphia, Pa. in East Norriton and Mount Airy, Supermarket News says.
In honor of the 75th birthday of the chain, “diamond deals” and other throwback savings will be in store.
“We are incredibly proud to celebrate the opening of our 400th store, a momentous number 75 years in the making,” Eric Lindberg, Grocery Outlet’s CEO said in a statement on its website. “Since our founding, Grocery Outlet has built on the core value of ‘touching lives for the better,’ and today, we are proud to play a part in 400 communities across the U.S.”
