Buy Low Grocery REPACK

In 1961, Frank Outlaw, a former Winn-Dixie executive, bought four Greenville, S.C. grocery stores from the chain Wrenn and Syracuse, to create the Wrenn & Outlaw chain. The company was officially named BI-LO in 1963 after Outlaw conducted an employee store-naming contest to develop the "brand." His secretary, Edna Plumblee, won the contest by submitting the name "BI-LO."

In June 2001, BI-LO debuted their discount grocery format, FoodSmart in Camden, South Carolina. A month later, BI-LO purchased eight Harris Teeter grocery stores in South Carolina and converted those stores to either BI-LO or the FoodSmart formats.[3]

In 2005, Ahold sold BI-LO/Bruno's to Lone Star Funds.[5] In order to concentrate on renovating older stores, building new ones, and investing in newer information technology, the new owners sold off 104 BI-LO, FoodSmart, Bruno's, Food Fair, and Food World stores in areas where the chain did not have significant market penetration. They also sold off three BI-LO/Bruno's distribution centers to grocery wholesaler, C&S Wholesale Grocers who converted some of the stores to Southern Family Markets.[6][7] Included in the sell-off were all stores in the Knoxville, TN, area which nearly all were immediately occupied by Food City stores. As of 2010, one location in the area has not been leased to any business in five years, in part due to Food City already owning a former Winn-Dixie location just a short walk away.

On December 19, 2011, it was announced that BI-LO and Winn-Dixie would merge to create an organization with some 690 grocery stores and 63,000 employees in eight states throughout the southeastern United States.[32] BI-LO will purchase Winn-Dixie for $530 million, and operate Winn-Dixie as a subsidiary with its stores maintaining the Winn-Dixie name. It was later announced that the merged company would be based at Winn-Dixie's former headquarters in Jacksonville, Florida.[33] In early 2013, BI-LO phased out its own private label soft drinks in its BI-LO stores in favor of the "Chek" brand used by Winn-Dixie.

Think (when grocery shopping on a budget) about how you can make many things at home instead of buying them already made. Even items like tortillas for tacos and buns for hot dogs can be made at home instead of buying them.

It will provide you with price comparisons for three different stores, meal planning, grocery lists, recipes, and a cheap grocery list for the entire month. I found the best food prices to make sure you can reduce that monthly bill without sacrificing health, taste, and comfort.

Sour cream is an excellent condiment and a fantastic addition to your cheap grocery list. Use it in cooking for a cream sauce, make dips and casseroles, or top a baked potato. In my area, 16 ounces is less than a dollar.

The remaining Bi-Lo stores that were not bought by other owners or grocery store chains are scheduled to close April 18. Here's a look at the grocery store chain's impact on the Upstate over the last 60 years.

Grocery Outlet has operates more than 400 stores in California, Idaho, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Washington. This "extreme value" supermarket has been described as "the TJMaxx of grocery stores" and they keep their loyal customers returning for the warehouse store-like prices without the membership fees. You'll find affordable groceries and big savings on brand name items, but you'll have to be flexible when it comes to your shopping list since Grocery Outlet is, in many ways, a salvage grocery store.

Lidl has an excellent fresh produce selection as well as a very impressive fresh bakery where you'll find ciabattas, focaccias, and rustic loaves made on site (that can be sliced to order) along with muffins, croissants artisan breads, oversized cookies, yeast doughnuts, and more. Around 80% of what Lidl carries comes from its own private label. Since Lidl is an international grocery store, they bring in lots of products from other countries: pasta from Italy, chocolate from Germany and cured meats from Spain. They also carry familiar brands like Jif and Coca-Cola, but availability will vary and name brand product availability won't be consistent. Lidl also has an award-winning wine department that has won more than 200 industry awards. Most of the stores offer about 80 wines at any given time. In 2019, Lidl was ranked as the third best supermarket by Food & Wine, which was based upon overall shopper experience. When shopping at Lidl be sure to bring your own bags, otherwise you'll have to pay for them or go without. View specials and find locations at

Keep your budget from inflating by sticking to your grocery list. Use those weekly mailers to plan out your grocery purchases for the week and take some time to compare prices for your favorite food from different stores. This helps prevent impulse buying, which can lead to the quick demise of your food budget.

Defining what lack of access to affordable and nutritious food means and estimating how many people are affected by living in food deserts is not straightforward. A number of different measures are possible. ERS began its investigation into access by mapping the availability of affordable and nutritious food across the country. Because it is too costly to survey the types of foods and prices offered in every store, ERS used the availability of supermarkets and large grocery stores (including discount and supercenter stores) as a proxy for the availability of affordable, nutritious food.

Perhaps the best measure of whether someone who lives far from a grocery store faces obstacles to accessing affordable and nutritious food is whether or not he or she has a car. Access to a car allows people to leave the food desert and shop at supermarkets and large grocery stores outside of their neighborhoods. But not everyone has regular access to a car. About 2.3 million, or 2.2 percent, of households in the continental U.S. live more than a mile from a supermarket and do not have access to a vehicle. For these households, lack of transportation poses a likely barrier to accessing affordable and nutritious food.

Determining the extent of food deserts involves looking at income levels, population density, and distance from a supermarket. ERS researchers combined data from the Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center, which is based on the 2000 Census of Population, with the addresses of supermarkets and large grocery stores, and used mapping software to identify portions of the St. Louis area where access to affordable and nutritious food may be limited.

However, there are ways to help spend less on groceries and still put nutritious meals on the table. Try some of these tips to cut back on costs at the grocery store when inflation is driving prices up.

And the most recent time this happened to me was when I shared my monthly grocery bill on my blog. I quickly realized my grocery spending must not be all that normal, especially after getting comment after comment from email subscribers like this:

Considering the Department of Agriculture's (USDA) most recent cost of food report pegs even the cheapest grocery budget around $190 per person a month (and goes all the way up to $370 a month), apparently my shopping habits are a big outlier after all.

Our ratings of Bay Area grocery chains and stores report how each stacks up for price and quality. To compare prices, our researchers used a 154-item list of common items to shop area options. To evaluate stores on quality of products and service, we surveyed area consumers. The figures below summarize our findings; for details, see our Ratings Tables.

The next-best bets for low grocery prices in the Bay Area were Grocery Outlet (22 percent lower than the all-store average), FoodMaxx (21 percent lower), Foods Co. (20 percent lower), and Smart & Final and Sprouts (14 percent lower).

Dollar General is another discount grocery store that is typically available in smaller towns and rural areas. Because of this, it is often one of the only stores those residents can use.

Food4Less is a grocery store that sells food at hugely discounted prices. You can also combine coupons and digital coupons to save, as well as get points towards gas just by shopping with them.
