Value grocery retailer hosts Community Grand Opening Celebration on Thursday
WOODLAND — Grocery Outlet Bargain Market, which company officials describe as “the nation’s fastest-growing, extreme-value grocery retailer,’’ opened its newest location Thursday at 1325 Lewis River Road in Woodland, creating approximately 30-40 new jobs in the community.
The grand opening celebration included a ribbon-cutting ceremony to “Unlock Savings” and a donation of $2,489.31 to Woodland Action Center, presented by independent owner-operator, Launa and Brian Howard. In true Grocery Outlet fashion, the amount that shoppers saved on their grocery purchases during the new store’s first hour of operation determined the total donation amount.
Grocery Outlet stores are independently operated by local families who are committed to supporting their communities.
“We are thrilled to open a Grocery Outlet here in Woodland and bring the community a simple way to save money on their groceries,” said Launa and Brian. “Our partnership with Grocery Outlet allows us to be true entrepreneurs, create new jobs and have positive impact on the neighborhood.”
Grocery Outlet officials claim the store “offers the same trusted brands as traditional grocery stores, but at prices 40 to 70 percent less.’’ Its buyers scour the country to find the top manufacturers with excess inventory, and seasonal closeouts so Grocery Outlet can offer “WOW savings” of 50 percent or more on thousands of name-brand products.
Through Sept. 13, customers may enter for a chance to win a grand prize of free groceries for one year ($100 per month for one year, a $1,200 value). The grand prize drawing will take place at the end of the day on Thu., Sept. 13, at the Woodland Grocery Outlet. (Must be 18 years of age or older. One entry per person, per day. No purchase necessary. Winner need not be present to win but must claim the prize within three days of notification or another winner will be chosen. No cash value and no substitutions.)
To extend the celebration, there will be free wine tasting each afternoon from noon to 4 p.m. through Sun., Aug. 19 in the wine department. Must be 21 years of age or older with valid ID. Store hours are 8 a.m. – 9 p.m.
