Our Company

In 1946, Jim Read started selling military surplus for deep discounts and Grocery Outlet has been wowing bargain-minded shoppers ever since. Delivering thrilling deals has become our mission; in fact, it’s led us to become the nation’s largest extreme value grocery retailer. We offer brand-name, quality products at up to 60% off conventional retail prices.

Our buyers shop the world, traveling thousands of miles each year to find the best deals available. They have developed long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with thousands of producers and manufacturers over the years. Grocery Outlet buyers are experts at buying product opportunistically; that is, product outside the normal retail channel, i.e. packaging changes, product overruns, and surplus inventories, to bring the best bargains back to our stores.

Our customers are bargain hunters, coupon clippers, working parents, thriving families, and those who love high-quality products at very low prices. Whatever brings you here, we’re happy to have you. We love to save you money.

The third generation of the Read family is now running the business, with 210+ independently operated stores in California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Washington. Grocery Outlet stores are located in cities large and small, and serve all kinds of neighborhoods. Most stores are independently operated by locally-based families. We are truly a family business.

My Story

My Name is Linda Held. I have been involved in health, wellness and fitness most of my life. I am always looking for ways to have my health and help others find ways to be the best they can be in every aspect of their lives. In the easiest way possible. When Zurvita found me I was not really looking for anything else. I was asked to try it so agreed but mostly just to be polite. I did not want to like it. The first time I tried it I wasn't sure I felt anything. I am a pretty energetic person by nature. The second day I had just finished a 2 hour work out and realized I was dancing in my car to the music. I have continued to use Zurvita daily and have seen a variety of things that I have felt. Calmness, energy but not in a crazy way. Mental focus, better digestion and regularity. Sleeping through the night and waking up rested. Feeling over all better than I have felt in a long time. Aches and pains less.

I am now convinced that this good nutrition just makes your body work and feel better. I have also had the joy of helping a big variety of people improve many things in their lives and health. I have been married now for 31 years and have 3 son's and 1 daughter-in-law. I have been blessed with a good life and love spending time with many friends and family members. I love music, food, cooking, wine, sports of all kinds and traveling. I work as a part time event planner as well and love it. I enjoy helping others and believe in always finding good in everyone I meet.
