This directory is great, by state, check it out! Most are salvage groceries. I love them!
What discount grocery stores are in the Mesa, Arizona area? I want to purchase, for donation, several cases (24/case) of macaroni and cheese. Thanks you.

to locate the nearest Dollar Tree ($1.00 per item) stores.
It would be so helpful if there was a central listing of where to locate these discount grocery stores that sell salvage food and household items. Some people call them banana box stores. I've asked around and located two, but both have already closed. Many don't advertise in phone books, so it would be helpful to see a listing by state/city of where you are so we can visit and give you business. I am sure this would be helpful to others too. Thank you.

I have shopped at all 4 although the last 3 are my favorites. 1st one is a little higher and farther away. They are a big money saver. (09/19/2008)

Check all pull-dates on anything you buy at a Liquidation or Dollar store.
We do all of our shopping at Fred Meyers because they have the very best sales and all of their frozen dinners and other frozen food is even cheaper than Walmart. We find that when it comes to frozen food prices, that 95% of the time Fred Meyers beats Walmart. (sometimes by 50 cents or more)
For paper plates and TP, look for the Walgreens discount brands to go on sale. Paper plates are 99 cents and TP is 2, 3 or 4 rolls for $1. So if you do pay 50 cents per roll, this beats the price on Scott 1000 TP which is now over $3.50 for 4.
Never buy the knock-off of the Scott-1000 Toilet paper at the dollar stores. This gave my 5 year old granddaughter a very painful and itchy problem "down there" and it took 2 weeks and 2 visits to the doctor's office to get her all healed up. This TP affected "all" of the women in our family in a bad way, even the adults. At first we all thought we came down with yeast infections at the same time. Be "very" careful when buying discount brand TP. Our family will never buy TP from a dollar store again. But the Wallgreens brand is top notch. I've been buying it for years. (09/20/2008)
We now have a discount food and tools store here in Medford, Wisconsin. It has dented cans, great variety of salvaged and bulk foods dried fruit, lots of discount tools and even used clothing and furniture many items very handy in hard times. Great store to shop. (02/12/2009)
I can not find the discount grocery stores. I am in Platteville, Colorado and the next city is Greeley, Colorado. Could you please help me get a list for the stores so I can check them. Thanks.
The above link will help you in CO and all over the place. I am checking out one in Mishawaka, IN tomorrow. I can hardly wait. Down in south central KY the Amish have "salvage groceries" all over the place.
