I want to know where the nearest Salvage/Dented grocery stores are. I am in Mocksville, NC. Thanks.
Oh wow! That is a difficult question! The stores have different names depending upon the location. Some of them are United Grocers, or Save-A-Lot, Railroad Salvage Stores, are just a few names. And you didn't give your zip code. Some can be looked up by state, and zip code but you have to have the name of the chain.
Here in our area, the Dollar General Store has a few specialty stores that are Dollar General Markets.They have canned goods, bread, cereals, dairy products, produce, and other things just like a regular grocery store. I find the prices are lower than some chain stores. But none of their stock is dented, it is all first rate items.
As for finding the true salvage store with dented cans. They are rare now. Most of the large groceries, (such as Kroger) send their dented items to a central location such as Second Harvest, or for the agencies that stock the Fish Pantry.
Hope somebody else has better information than I do.
