Best Grocery Store
For shoppers who can't get credit 

Grocery Outlet

There's no such thing as a free lunch, but if you buy your groceries from Grocery Outlet, then you're just about as close to one as you're ever likely to get. Low prices are only part of the appeal. This food liquidator sells off leftovers from other supermarkets, test products that didn't pass muster, and a bare-bones assortment of genuine grocery staples. Experimental movie tie-ins, neon-colored kids' snacks, and ethnically charged sauces and pickles all appear here with varying degrees of regularity. So if you happen to fall in love with a pallet of Costa Rican luncheon meat or Arab-language Kellogg's cereals, buy a lifetime supply immediately, for many of these items shall likely never pass through these or any other walls again.

Readers' Pick:
