Grocery Outlet Bargain Market, an extreme-value grocery
retailer, has officially opened its newest location today on Willow Street in Long Beach.
The store has helped create up to 33 new jobs in the community and provides big savings on name
brands, and high-quality merchandise for local consumers.
Grocery Outlet offers the same trusted brands as traditional grocery stores but at lower prices.
Its buyers scour the country to find the top manufacturers with excess inventory and seasonal
closeouts so Grocery Outlet can offer “WOW savings” on thousands of name-brand products at
significantly lower prices. Grocery Outlet stores are independently operated by local families
who are committed to supporting their communities.
“We are so thrilled to be a part of the Long Beach community and provide big savings on quality
groceries,” said Independent Operator Chris Castillo. “This partnership with Grocery Outlet
gives me the ability to grow my business, create new jobs and more importantly, give back to
the local community.”
Chris Castillo donated $1,000 to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Long Beach, whose mission is to
enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
Castillo also presented a $1,000 donation to Memorial Medical Center Foundation, whose
mission is to support Long Beach Medical Center and Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital
Long Beach in their commitment to providing quality health care close to home.
