I had heard Meredith talk about salvage grocery stores but have never encountered one before. I even went looking to e if they are in this area, hidden gems waiting to be discovered, but alas they are not.
What I have discovered is that we have something just as good, or maybe even better. We have a grocery outlet! Amelia's Grocery Outlet sells grocery overstocks from NAME BRAND manufacturers at truly rock bottom prices. I went for the first time yesterday and walked out with a cart full of name brands like Tropicana, Jenny-O, Pillsbury, Cascadia Farms, Ore-Ida, Betty Crocker for$44.00. They had a HUGE selection of organic food which really impressed me.
Although it appears that Amelia's is a local chain, I am sure that they are not the only chain out there, so it is worth looking around to see if there is one in your area.
