Continuing its expansion on the East Coast, discount grocery store chain Grocery Outlet recently opened a new store in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.
The Grocery Outlet store, located at 5280 Simpson Ferry Road inside the Windsor Park Shopping Center, opened on December 15. Owner-operators Ryan Lazar and Benjamin Lee have worked at Grocery Outlet for several years in various capacities, experiencing significant personal and professional growth.
The retailer appeals to customer needs by providing popular brands at more than attractive discount prices. The Grocery Outlet has been in business since 1946 when founder Jim Read opened his very first store, selling military surplus at deep discount prices.
Today, over 400 store locations across the nation and more than 1.5 million shoppers are hitting the aisles each week.
“We are so thrilled to bring a Grocery Outlet location to the Mechanicsburg community and provide big savings on high-quality groceries,” said Eric Lindberg, CEO at Grocery Outlet, Inc. “Windsor Park Shopping Center is the ideal location for us as it’s centrally located with high traffic among a strong, growing residential population who will benefit from the deeply-discounted convenience shopping we offer.”
With shelves stocked to include everything from fresh meat and produce to natural, organic, specialty, and healthy items, the brand is well known as the nation’s largest extreme value grocery store.
Every store location is independently owned and operated by local families across various states, including California, Idaho, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Idaho, Nevada, New Jersey, Maryland, and Washington, delivering personalized customer experiences to each of the local communities they serve.
In addition to discounted name-brand, high-quality groceries, store locations also offer gifts, toys, household items, health and beauty care, general merchandise products, and beer and wine.
“Grocery Outlet is the perfect anchor Tenant that will serve Mechanicsburg and the surrounding area for many years to come. We are ecstatic that they have chosen the Windsor Park Shopping Center,” stated Ken Bernstein, Senior Vice President of Retail Leasing at David S. Brown Enterprises.
