Say hello to Larry Crowson, the operator of the Grocery Outlet located in Stayton, Oregon. Larry has been the operator of the Grocery outlet in Stayton since 1987, a year after he helped his parents develop the store.

Being a citizen of Stayton his whole life, Larry loves operating his Grocery Outlet not only because of the freedom to run his own business, but also so he can give back to his hometown! The profits from his store go to support local schools and fund after school programs, sports teams, and school clubs. On top of that, Larry donates to food banks and many other local non-profit organizations.

Because Larry has operated the store for a number of years, he has had the pleasure of personally knowing many of his customers and watching their children grow up. The store maintains a small town feel while offering the benefits of a large-scale grocer. Larry wants customers to come to his store because he knows they will experience not only the best prices, but also the best atmosphere around!
