Discount Supermarkets & Food Outlet Stores

Help Yourself to Some Serious Savings

By

No need to pay top dollar for quality food these days. Shop discount supermarkets to save big bucks on brand-name items. To serve a large part of their clientel, you'll also find interesting food and produce stocked to serve ethnic palates such as Hispanic and Asian. You have to shop in a warehouse atmosphere and bag-it-yourself, but the savings more than make up for the lack of polished floors, elaborate displays, and clerks wanting to help you out to your car.

They advertise themselves as the low price leader and I agree. I do most of the food shopping for my household and am hard pressed to find anything priced lower at another store. The stores are warehouse-style and you bag your own, but that's just fine with me. There is a great selection of Hispanic foods and vegetables for Mexican cooking. It's a mob scene on weekends, so try going here at other times. Open 24 hours.

Save Mart Supermarkets

These are morphed Albertson's stores, which Save Mart bought in 2007. As such, they still look like regular supermarkets, but with much lower prices. You've got to look around, but there are good deals to be had. There are several in the area, including Carson City. Check the Save Mart store locator to find one near you.

Around my house, this is know as the stale bread store. The products here and what's in the regular supermarket are indistinguishable to me, except for price. The wheat bread we like is less than half what it costs in the chain markets. You'll find similar savings on everything else they carry.

(Note: You'll never find this place by the street address, which is extremely goofy for some reason. The store front faces S. McCarran Blvd. Easiest access is also from McCarran. After crossing Rock Blvd. going south on McCarran, look for it in a strip of buildings on the right. There is no left turn if you are headed north on McCarran.)
