Salvage Grocery Stores: Who Cares About Sell-By Dates if You’re Saving Money?

  • Share

Sell-by dates, schmell-by dates. The discount, or salvage, grocery store is filled with merchandise that’s marked with sell-by dates that came and passed sometime before the recession was called a recession. You know what? The food inside most super-packaged containers is still fine—and it’s often 50 percent cheaper than the stuff in mainstream grocery stores.

An AP story reports that, unsurprisingly, business is up at salvage grocery stores in recent months. Most of the food comes from other grocery stores who feel the need to get the items off their shelves, or directly from huge food manufacturers like General Mills. The piece also explains who the typical salvage grocery store shopper is:

People who frequent salvage stores do the bulk of their food shopping at traditional grocers, where dairy and produce are more plentiful and there is lots of variety for everything else. A trip to the salvage grocer, they say, is more like a treasure hunt — what’s available one week may not be the next time around.

This is basically our family’s approach to these stores. You never know what you’re going to find, which is sorta fun—but also extra time-consuming, because you have to stroll leisurely up each aisle. Tip: Don’t bring the kids, if you can avoid it. The experience will try their patience, and yours, and chances are if the kids come along, you’ll come home with all sorts of odd foods you wouldn’t have purchased if you’d been alone.

There are lines I can’t cross at the discount grocer. Meat? I just can’t do meat at a salvage store. It would probably be fine, but I’d be freaked out for days with phantom stomach ailments after eating it (and I’d never feed it to my kids). But stuff that’s in cans or boxed up or otherwise packaged properly, like salad dressing or cereal or potato chips? Why not if it’s 75 percent cheaper than you’re used to paying?

(If you’re interested in shaving your grocery bill further, check out the lively conversation The Cheapskate Blog hosted about people challenging themselves to spending $50 or less each week on all of their food.)

Salvage grocery stores aren’t all that easy to find. Asking neighbors is a good way to start. In the yellow pages, these stores are usually lumped in with all the regular grocery stores. Some, but not all, salvage stores have the word “salvage” or “discount” in their names, which is a pretty good hint.

But there’s an easier way. One salvage grocery store, the Anderson Country Market in Madison Heights, Virgnia, with a motto you just have to love (Just Friendly Folks With “Old Fashioned” Prices), has done something incredibly helpful. It keeps a state-by-state directory of salvage stores, and I’ve cut and pasted the cheat sheet listings here:
