Here are some of the items the TikToker found in the grocery store and the difference in prices compared to other retailers is jaw-dropping:

  • Greenfield Natrual Meat Co. Baked Honey Ham: $2.49— Metro: $9.49
  • Mighty Caesar Dressing: $3.99 — Metro: $8.99
  • Liberte Caramel Yogurt: $1.99 — Summerhill Market: $4.49

Bailey also shared what she bought for $37.91 and it's a lot. Some things listed on her receipt include deli meats, Boom Chica Pop, Greek yogurt, frozen pizzas, organic grass-fed burger patties, and more!

"U are an angel for sharing this 😩 thank u queen," someone commented. While others were hoping there'd be a location near them — "Wow GREAT prices! Wish there was one in Vancouver 😅😅" a person said.

The Grocery Outlet specializes "in carrying manufacturer's over run product, close out product and over productions," the company states on their website.

They carry anything from groceries to frozen and refrigerated products. The store is open to the public and has been around since 1998. The store states that customers "will find products at substantial savings — usually 30-70% of traditional retailers."

But keep in mind, that customers never actually know what they may find in their stores, so "come with an open mind." — It's kind of like a HomeSense but for food.

Enjoy grocery shopping for cheap, Ontario!
