Grocery Outlet stores operate a deep discount “treasure hunt” style format, with a full produce department.

The company, which has more than 400 independently-owned locations, now operates in eight states: California, Idaho, New Jersey, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.

Grocery Outlet has been in business since 1946. Since going public in 2019, the company announced plans to expand out of its core West Coast market – more than half of the retailer’s footprint is in California.

The company said it plans to open 10 new stores in the Mid Atlantic this year, and grow its footprint by about 10% each year.
