How Does Smart and Final in Paso Robles Compare to the New Grocery Outlet?
After I finished loading I went to Smart and Final to get my bananas, a quart of plain Greek yogurt, avocados, peaches, frozen broccoli and large sizes of red and white vinegar -- all of which were on my list.
In conclusion, if you have a shopping list you may not find everything on it at the Grocery Outlet. It's a bit like Costco. They stock what they get good buys on, and what you find one day may not be there on your next visit, but you may find products you didn't even know existed at a lower price than elsewhere. On the other hand, you'd better know your prices and check the ads of other stores before you shop, because not everything is priced lower there. Smart and Final is reliable about carrying the same brands consistently. It also has the bulk food department. They have a wider selection of frozen, dairy, and deli foods. Fortunately the stores are so close together that you can find almost everything you need at one or the other.
Have you visited the new Grocery Outlet yet? Did you find what you wanted there?
