Today I found a sweet little place to get a great deal… Morrie’s Grocery Outlet. This store is located on Chicago Dr in Hudsonville.
What is a grocery outlet… well in short its a cheep place to buy your groceries that you might otherwise get a Meijer, Wal-Mart, or your local Mom and Pop shop. These shops sell in their items at discounts ranging from 30% to 50% off what the same item would sell for in your local supermarket. Sometimes these are no frills stores that resemble a warehouse more than a store, sometimes not. Some are stores that usually sells all the groceries returned by a supermarket to their warehouse. Why were they returned? Sometimes due to a case getting dropped or punctured which ruins one or two cans or boxes. Sometimes due to a manufacturer overestimating how many of an item to produce. Sometimes due to a label change or warehouse closing. For whatever reason these excess goods must be sold. Items whose packaging is compromised are discarded and the rest sent out by the truckload to end up for sale at your local salvage grocery store.
A few of the deals I found today include the following, but their inventory changes daily!
- candy bars $0.25
- flips pretzels $0.50
- Natural Valley Granola Bars –6 pack $0.99
- Starbucks frappuccinos- 4 pack $1.49
- Orbitz gum 2 for $0.50
