Grocery Outlet's customers and employees have always known that it’s hip to be frugal. You hear a lot in the news these days about the downswing in the economy and how many people are turning to frugal measures to cope with layoffs, reduced hours, and smaller paychecks. At Grocery Outlet, we believe you shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality, abundance, freshness, or fun to be frugal. In fact, being frugal IS fun.
Frugality to us means never paying full retail. It means finding ways to make your dollar stretch beyond what you thought possible. It doesn’t mean being cheap; it means making responsible choices based on what you actually need, without sacrificing what you truly want. When you are frugal, you don’t have to worry as much about your future. You have control over your spending and you use your income judiciously to make the best choices for yourself and your family. Best of all, frugality challenges you to be creative, to find ways to make a limited supply last and to discover the bargains your family lives on.
We can help! Grocery Outlet has been providing our customers with incredible bargains since 1946. That gives us over 60 years of experience feeding families. After all that time, you’d think we’d know a thing or two about how to supply fantastic food at amazing prices. Not only that, but we’ve picked up some trade secrets along the way, and that is what this blog is all about.
We want to share our secrets, tips, and ideas with you, to show you how to become a Bargainista and get the most out of Grocery Outlet. We also want to hear from you. We know there’s always more to learn and some of our best ideas come directly from our shoppers. By tapping into all that knowledge we all grow our frugality resources, which will benefit all of us as a productive, interdependent community—a family of bargain hunters! And that sounds like a winning idea to us.
