While traditional grocery stores may be your initial GF shopping venture, there are other supplemental shopping options available. Wholesale Closeout stores won’t complete your shopping list but they can offer wonderful surprises and deep discounts. These types of shops stock excess inventory, overstocks/overruns, salvage, liquidations, and closeout products. These stores are also called bargain outlets. Examples I’m familiar with are: Ollies (mostly east coast and south USA); Solomons Adventures (Jacksonville, Florida) and Town Talk (Fort Worth, Texas). In these types of stores when you find a bargain you are familiar with, get it as inventory does not remain the same. If you are unfamiliar with the quality of the product, you may want to buy just one. Always, always check the dates to be sure it has not expired.
When I was first diagnosed with a gluten allergy, I ignored many shopping options. Even though I was within an easy walking distance from Solomons Adventures, I stopped shopping there. Before I was diagnosed, I shopped there weekly stretching my grocery budget. To my surprise they often have many GF products I desire. I shop there again now when I’m in the area (I moved away).
In the above image, with the exception of 4 greeting cards and the lint brush, the rest is gluten free!
Happy Shopping! Being GlutenFree is an adventure.
