How To Shop A Bread Outlet Store
If you are under the impression that a bread outlet store sells less than fresh only outdated and day old products – you are in for a surprise!! Learning how to shop a bread outlet store can save you over 70% on bread and MORE! The breads and products are sold within the standard of freshness for the industry. The only items that are outdated at the store I shop are the ones they give away for free when you spend a certain dollar amount.
The bread above I paid $9.18 for, and only 1 item was outdated (by 1 day) and that was given to me for free! The Entenmann’s Outlet store that I shop in carries Bobs Red Mill products and Bear Creek products! Now, I love to make homemade bread and do it often, but I am not making buns, English muffins etc!
What I learned about how to shop at a bread outlet.
- There is a greater variety of products than in the grocery store. I found items I love and never found in my favorite grocery stores!
- Some items are only sold through certain stores, but the bread outlet store will take them all.
- Many bread trucks are independently operated. The drivers need to sell the bread, so when particular items aren’t selling well at one grocery store, they cannot move it to another store, but it can go to the outlet for sale.
- Bread outlet stores carry a vast array of products. Jams, coffee, tea, sauces, candy, soup mixes, beans, cookies, popcorn, crackers, stuffing mixes and more.
When shopping a bread outlet store, be sure to ask about these extra savings:
- Buyers club punch cards. Earn punches based on dollar amount spent to get free items
- Coupons? Most have a coupon of the month for buy one get one free or other deals.
- Discounts? Military, foster parenting, senior. Just ask.
- Use Valpak coupons for buy one get one free. See Valpak coupons
- Do they have a spend X dollar amount for a free item of the day program?
- When do they have extra markdown days?
Don’t forget about your large local bakery stores. We have a fabulous bakery called Great Buns in Vegas, they supply most of the restaurants in the city. They have bread marked down each morning for $2! And it was baked the day before. Call your local bakery stores and ask about their markdown policies.
If you are passing up the expensive bread in the grocery stores to save your family money, check into shopping bread outlets stores in your area-you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
Hot Tip: Extend your savings by freezing the bread. Leave in store packaging for short term freezing, or wrap in foil for up to 6 months.
