Brandon and Sam Riahi are the dual-store operators of the St. Johns and
Scappoose Grocery Outlets. Growing up, Sam’s mother was a raving fan of
Grocery Outlet. Sam remembers shopping the store with her mother and
growing to love the business. When her brother became an operator she
knew she had to do the same. She teamed up with her husband Brandon and
the two began operator training themselves in 2002. After the two
finished, they took over the Yuba City store and stayed there for two
years before transferring to Scappoose. They took ownership of the St.
Johns store in 2011.
Brandon and Sam are honored to be able to contribute to the Portland
community. The couple is a huge supporter of local food banks that
provide regular donations that go to feed the needy. The couple also
offers a 5% discount on all products going to the banks.
Through the years of operating their stores, Brandon and Sam have
cultivated many close friendships with their customers. Their constant
smiles and helpful attitudes have allowed the couple to acquaint
themselves with many shoppers personally and develop relationships that
go beyond the store. Brandon and Sam are glad their store has been able
to give back to the community of Scappoose. To all of their customers,
Brandon and Sam would like to say thank you for helping them help you
and that they wish to be continue for many years to come.
