    SarahWe have an exciting product on the shelves of every Grocery Outlet Store—CLEAR 7 Day Scalp & Hair Beauty Treatment! This seven day treatment is designed to give you softer, silkier, smoother hair in just one week.  If you check out the reviews online you’ll see that this is a 5 star product!  You’ll pay up to $15.99 for this product at drug stores—or $14.98 at WalMart, but you can buy the CLEAR 7 Day Scalp & Hair Beauty Treatment for just $3.99 at Grocery Outlet.  This is a 73% savings—can you say SCORE!?

    This product is super easy to use and smells amazing.

  • Beauty Blog: Nail-ed It!

    If there’s one beauty regime I have trouble with, it’s painting my nails. I don’t have the time, the energy, or the willpower to sit with a bottle of nail polish, painstakingly paint each nail, only to accidentally touch something and ruin the whole hand. SarahAs if painting my nails one color wasn’t hard enough, the trends in nail art suddenly exploded and it was no longer ‘fashionable’ to have your nails only one color—there had to be intricate designs, patterns, themes! What was a girl to do but just stand by the wayside admiring all of those other girls with pretty nails?

    Someone in the beauty industry must have shared the same pain I had and decided to take action with Nail Art Strips—nail polish strips that are dry to begin with, can be repositioned after application, and have beautiful designs that could only come with hours of work and lots of money spent at the salon—it was as if my prayers had been answered.

    Before beginning work at Grocery Outlet, I was buying the same nail polish strips from CVS for 9.99 or more! I didn’t realize Grocery Outlet was able to buy the strips on closeout and retail them for just $2.99!  This is quite the steal, but thanks to a recent super-duper-exclusive closeout buy from Revlon, we’re going to be selling these Nail Art Strips for ONLY $1.50! Now that’s not just a deal, it’s a “SCORE!” This was a one-time specialty buy from Revlon so stock up while you can!

    Revlon Nails

    Another awesome perk about Nail Art Strips: the stinky nail polish smell is SUPER minimal. You could put these on almost anywhere—it takes less than 10 minutes to do!  Because of the zero dry time, you can do your nails in the car on a road trip, on the bus or train during a commute, or right before a night out!

    They are fun, easy, and oh so very chic!—and MUCH cheaper than a specialty salon manicure.

    TIPS: Use a basecoat to make the strips adhere to your nails better and prevent peeling…you won’t be able to reposition them, but if you’ve played with Nail Art Strips before, you should be fine. Even though a top coat isn’t necessary—I like to add one for some extra shine and protection. Your nail art (with these tips) should last about 2 weeks! And yes—these strips come off with nail polish remover.

    It does take a little bit of practice, but they are VERY EASY to apply and take off—plus you’re given several extra strips…just in case you mess up a little.

  • Our Top Picks for the 2012 Wine Sale!

    Hi, I’m Carol, Assistant Wine Buyer for Grocery Outlet.  Are you excited about this year’s November Wine Sale? I know I am! Starting this Wednesday, November 7th, it runs for 5 days until Sunday, November 11th.  During the sale, all stores will have a 20% discount off on every bottle! With this discount added to Grocery Outlet’s everyday low prices, you can save from 40-70% off what you’d pay at a conventional store.

    Our team has been working hard to stock up your local stores with great wines to give you the best variety and quality.  Here are my two top favorite recommendations:

    Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Extra Dry Sparkling ($5.99 retail, sells elsewhere at $11.99)—I helped host a bridal shower for my dear friend who was getting married two weeks ago. I decided to pick up a bottle of Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Extra Dry Sparkling Wine at my local Grocery Outlet to make Bellinis & Mimosas. Boy, was it a hit! The wine had a perfect hint of sweetness, with aromas of crisp orchard fruit and honeysuckle.

    You don’t have to make Bellinis or Mimoas with Woodbridge like I did, because it also tastes great alone and pairs well with Asian appetizers, creamy cheeses, spicy dishes like Thai curry, or custard desserts such as panna cotta with fresh berries. Pop open a bottle to enhance everyday events, or whenever a little celebrating is in order.

    Mondavi Woodbridge

    Let’s step away from the sparkling and go into the red wine category.  If you are a fan of Cabernets then I’ve got the perfect wine for you.

    Mazzocco Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon ($12.99 CA, $13.99 all other states; sells elsewhere for $29.99)—Mazzocco Sonoma winery is very well known and is located in Healdsburg, CA (the heart of Sonoma County wine country). They are so renowned that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton invited them to the Department of State to join the Diplomatic Culinary Partnership.  Mazzocco Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon also received the Gold Medal at the 2012 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

    Aromas of cassis, cacao and forest floor lead to a plush mid-palate impression having dark chocolate, allspice and black licorice notes.  It’s the quality you'd expect from a Cabernet. For a Gold Medal winner, a $12.99 retail price when it drinks like a $25-50 bottle is a very impressive wine.


    Be sure to take advantage of our wine selection during the wine sale!  For 5 days only, all of your favorite wines could be yours at 20% off!  Or you might take the chance to try something new.  At these prices, you can afford to!

    Cheers from Grocery Outlet!

  • Beauty Blog: Vicks Nature Fusion

    It’s about that time of year that more people are sniffling, coughing, and feeling ill. This is the time of flu shots and cough drops, warm Sarahbeverages and cold remedies. For all of your seasonal ailments and more, Grocery Outlet has you covered.

    Many of us are familiar with the soothing effects of NyQuil, which gives you much needed rest but suppressing symptoms while you don't feel well.  Vicks has come out with a new, effective remedy for those pesky sniffles, coughs, and blah feeling of being sick: Nature Fusion.

    If you haven’t heard of this stuff, you should come on in to your local Grocery Outlet and check it out! Nature Fusion is Vicks's solution for natural, healthier, and more eco-friendly cold and flu symptom relief.  It's made with real honey, and is absolutely gluten, dye, and alcohol-free, which is uncommon in the medicine market.

    Please keep in mind that this is in fact a medicine—although it’s made with real honey and smells like honey, it’s going to taste like medicine.

    Vicks Nature Fusion comes in several varieties.  At Grocery Outlet, we’re happy to carry Nature Fusion Cough Remedy and Multi-Symptom liquid or if you’d prefer caplets—we’ve got those too. Each is selling at a Grocery Outlet near you for the low price of $5.99! We’ve even got a double cough and cold whammy value pack for $9.99!


    Nature Fusion

    There’s no time like the present to start preparing for the dreaded season of cold and flu—especially at the great prices and values that Grocery Outlet offers. While you’re in, be sure to check out our selection on cough drops! We’ve got bags and bags of Halls Cough Drops which are being sold for the phenomenally low price of $0.99 per bag! There couldn’t be a better time to stock up on these cold remedies.


    Halls Cough Drops

    It’s better to stock up now when you’re healthy, so if and when cold and flu strike you’ll be prepared to stay in and remedy those pesky symptoms with some old-fashioned rest and new-fashioned cold medicine.

  • Beauty Blog: Get the Skinny on Skinny Girl


    This past week Grocery Outlet ran an AD featuring the new and exciting Skinny Girl line by Bethenny Frankel. Many of us know her for the Skinny Girl Margarita and assorted other mixed drinks, but she seems to be a jack of all trades these days: skincare line, shaping body wear line, nutrition line…what’s next?

    We got an awesome deal on Skinny Girl products, so naturally we are sharing it with you! The unusual thing about this buy is the breadth of product we got—we are almost able to carry the complete Skinny Girl line! That amount and variety of product is rare in a closeout deal.

    More importantly, these products are a great value. If you go to Target, Walmart, CVS, or even you’ll see that this skincare line retails anywhere from $5-$16—but at Grocery Outlet, we’re selling Skinny Girl for $1.99-$4.99. Yes, you read that correctly.

    Items that I’m most excited about:

    Skinny Girl Lip Balm Shimmer—for when you want to keep things fun but not flashy. The Plumping Lip Gloss also has a lovely shimmer to it. And for $1.99—what’s not to love?! With ingredients like Shea Butter and Castor Seed Oil, lips will look luscious and be moisturized!


     Skinny Girl


    Skinny Girl Cleansing Facial Cloths—I’m addicted to facial cloths, because I’m lazy and can’t be bothered to walk over to the sink and wash my face. These particular facial cloths have Aloe, Chamomile, Cucumber, and Willow Bark, which have natural anti-inflammatory properties. They’re only $2.99 for a pack of 25! These are great to pack in your bag to use after hitting the gym, yoga studio, or even doing a little gardening outside—or you could be like me and use them instead of washing your face, which might not be the best thing to do, come to think of it.

    Skinny Girl Tinted Daily Moisturizer SPF 15—I wear sunscreen every day—if you don’t already, you should too! Finding a tinted moisturizer with sunscreen is wonderful, especially if you’re not one to wear very much makeup, but want just a little bit more coverage. This is a great product to use as your base if you wear foundation. We carry this in three different shades: Sand, Beige, and Mocha. For $3.99, it’s hard to beat this awesome deal.


     Skinny Girl on Shelf


    If that wasn’t enough to get you excited about the Skinny Girl Skin Care Line, you should know that Skinny Girl does not test on animals. All of the products smell great, feel great, and are a great value! So hurry in and try Skinny Girl before we run out!

  • Beauty Blog: Nutra Nail's Gel Perfect Manicure

    Hi! My name is Sarah and I’m the new Assistant Buyer for Health and Beauty Care at Grocery Outlet! Working here these past few weeks started to make me wonder what our products were really like, so my guest posts on the SarahBargainista Blog will give you the rundown on Grocery Outlet beauty products and real-life product tests, how-to’s, and fun ideas on how to use them.

    Our first topic is Nail Polish. Grocery Outlet carries a variety of nail products, and this week we will be looking at Nutra Nail’s Gel Perfect 5 Minute Gel-Color Manicure.

    This nail color comes in twin packs—so you’re getting 2 Gel-Color polishes for $8.99—already a pretty neat deal, but let’s take a closer look.  The packaging promises that the polish sets 5 minutes and I’ll get a "lasting patent leather shine."

    Anyone who has ever had a ‘gel manicure’ at a salon knows that it can take close to an hour if not longer.  The payoff is that the manicure will last for at least two weeks without chipping—while maintaining a glossy finish—as compared to a regular manicure.   I’m going to test it out and see if that’s true.


    Before we begin, a few things to remember about any sort of nail polish: paint your nails in a well-ventilated area and give yourself enough time to paint your nails—plus dry time.

    This nail color kit comes with a handy-dandy instruction sheet, which seems easy enough to follow, along with three different little bottles: gel color, activator, and brush cleaner.  If you follow the directions on the sheet provided, everything should go smoothly.


    Included in Kit




    As someone who isn’t very good at painting her own nails, I found this product to be extremely user-friendly.  For example, I didn’t manage to strike the perfect balance of gel color and activator—but conveniently there’s a Q&A on the back of the instruction sheet.  My nails weren’t drying quickly, so I ran some cold water on my hands and viola!  The color set!  And I was left with a very vibrant red color on my nails that gleam like patent leather.




    For $8.99, this is a super fabulous deal! Especially since elsewhere this product will be sold anywhere from $9.99 - $14.99 for a single pack, while Grocery Outlet is selling a 2-pack for $8.99—so that’s about $4.50 per pack! And you could save up to $10.49 per pack!  Wow!  What a deal!

    I was surprised by how quickly the polish set and how shiny my nails are! The packaging advertisements were right—my nails dried fast, the color is vibrant, and they are patent leather shiny!



    And if you want to change up your nail color, Grocery Outlet also carries the Nutra Nail No-Mess Express Gel Perfect Remover for $4.99 (five individually packaged nail polish remover pads) although 100% acetone polish remover will work as well. This retails for up to $7.99 elsewhere!



    Give it a try, and let us know how it goes on our Facebook page.  I think you’ll be really surprised at how great a manicure you can give yourself.  See you next time!

    20% off Wine Sale

    And here are some tasting notes on some great wines we currently have in stock to give you some ideas on what to get during the sale:

    The 2008 Renwood “Red Label” Barbera displays aromas of black currant and cola. On the palate, the wine has more tannin than we normally see in a Barbera, with a smooth core of dark fruit flavors, and crisp acidity—this varietal’s signature trait.  A finish that lingers, with flavors of plum and cassis, balances the wine.  
    Grocery Outlet price: $3.99
    With 20% off discount: $3.19
    Save $5.80—65% off the retail price!   

    The Bixler Vineyards Union Island Red Table Wine exhibits rich, ripe, forward fruit, with flavors of ripe cherries, plums and berries, with a hint of French oak. This hearty wine is very approachable, pairing nicely with most any grilled red meat, sausages, winter stews or soups, pizza or marinara pasta dishes.
    Grocery Outlet price: $2.99
    With 20% off discount: $2.39
    You save $7.60—76% off the retail price!

    The Bixler Vineyards Union Island White Table Wine smells of citrus, with rich, ripe fruit and flavors of grapefruit and a hint of banana. No oak was used during aging, allowing the ripe fruit to be fully expressed in the finished wine.  This white wine blend will complement grilled chicken, pasta with pesto or white sauce, or any fish dish.
    Grocery Outlet price: $2.99
    With 20% off discount: $2.39
    You save $7.60—76% off the retail price!

    If you’re a chocolate lover, the best wine to drink with chocolate is chocolate wine!  Recommended by The Seattle Times, Chocolate Shop Red Wine is a deep, ruby red wine blended with rich, velvety chocolate. Inviting aromas of black cherry and dark chocolate combine in the glass and continue on the palate surrounded by hints of cocoa powder.  
    Grocery Outlet price: $9.99
    With 20% off discount: $7.99
    You save $7—47% off the retail price!
