Ask Mary: Discount Gourmet Grocers

Time again to answer your questions. Maria saw the segment I did with my frugal friend Kristen Hagopian author of Brilliant Frugal Living. Maria wasn’t the only one asking this question:

HI MARY. I’M TRYING TO FIND THAT GOURMET DISCOUNT RETAILER YOU DISCUSSED THIS WEEKEND. I AM LOOKING TO FIND A STORE IN THE NY AREA, PARTICULARLY LONG ISLAND. CAN YOU HELP?
THANKS,  MARIA.

MARIA, THANK YOU FOR WRITING.
THE RESPONSE TO OUR STORY ABOUT THE DISCOUNT GROCERY STORE CALLED BB’S HAS BEEN TREMENDOUS! THEIR DENTED AND OVERSTOCK GROCERY ITEMS WERE SUPER CHEAP.
   BELOW YOU WILL FIND A COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF DISCOUNT GROCERS AROUND THE COUNTRY. THE STORE I VISITED IS LISTED AT THE TOP – B B’S GROCERY OUTLET. THEY HAVE 4 STORES (SEE THE TOP OF THE LIST BELOW).

I SHOPPED AT THE ONE AT 6180 MORGANTOWN RD. IN MORGANTOWN, PA.
MARIA I KNOW YOU NEED TO FIND SOMETHING IN NEW YORK.
SO, BESIDES MY LIST BELOW, HERE ARE SOME TIPS ON FINDING A DISCOUNT GROCER NEAR YOU.
FIRST–BE PATIENT- IT TAKES A LITTLE WORK.
THESE PLACES USUALLY DON’T ADVERTISE.
NEXT- DO AN INTERNET SEARCH AND TRY THESE KEY WORDS AND YOUR GEOGRAPHIC REGION.
FOR YOU MARIA IT WOULD BE THINGS LIKE
GROCERY OUTLET NY … WHOLESALE GROCERY NY
OVERSTOCK GROCERY NY … DISCOUNT GROCERY STORE NY–
YOU GET THE IDEA.
EVEN SOME GOOD FOOD SITES LIKE CHOWHOUND– HAVE BLOG POSTS ABOUT WHERE YOU CAN BUY THE BEST FOOD PRODUCTS FOR LESS.
IT TAKES SOME DIGGING – BUT YOU WILL FIND FRUGAL FOODIES WHO WILL SHARE THEIR LOCAL FIND WITH YOU.
