      And formerly FAD in ’69 & ’70. Just checked it out, bought $15 worth for $10 with the coupon and got the free Burger Bus lunch. All totally new and of course clean inside. Prices pretty much the same as Ralph’s sale prices. Lot of S&F type bulk packages I can’t use but enough individual items that I’m liking it, like an individual lime versus having to elsewhere for one when shopping at TJ’s. Didn’t check out the wine yet. Only negative is no deli or bakery. Guess that’s why it seems so much bigger inside.

    Most Grocery Outlet stores, at least in the bay area, Carry mostly named brand items and Items that are found at Whole foods, trader joes and high end grocery stores. If Santa Barbara store follows. It should be a great place to shop!. Close to expiration items you can freeze or use right away. Vitamins, hair products, everyday goods. Ive only found one that carries hard alcohol, otherwise most carry wine and beer. Good luck..Hoping this pans out!
