Say hello to Ken and Lyn Lowe, the operators of the Grocery Outlet located on Sixth Avenue in the north end of Tacoma Washington. Ken began working part-time at the Grocery Outlet in Vancouver in July of 1985. At the same time, Lyn was a legal assistant. Ken got Lyn on board and together they began training. They took their first store in Yucca Valley, California in 1995. Their heart was in the Northwest, and they were able to follow their dream home in 2000 when the North Tacoma store became available.
