best local price on parchment paper?

For baking, etc. Roll, plain, no coating. It's readily available online but shipping drives up the cost.

  1. Grocery Outlet in San Pablo had some either in the plastic bag section or cookware. Don't remember the price, but I'm guessing inexpensive. I wanted waxed paper and all they had was parchment. I'll get more cetails next time I go, but you might look at the GO stores you frequent.

      The last time I bought Reynolds parchment paper at GO it was $1.99 for a roll.

      My mother has a supply of sheets for baking that my b-i-law gave her. She said that he bought it from somebody . . . which I think means that he purchased a few sheets from a baker or similar business that would use it.

    2. What about Smart and Final? I just looked in the drawer and my parchment paper came from there.

      1. Costco carried parchment paper last year during the holiday season.

          Ditto on Costco. Big box of PaperChef Culinary Parchment, 205 ft. I can't recall how much it was - maybe in the $8-$9 range?

            I was at Costco tonight (Redwood City, CA) and they had this parchment paper in stock again. $9.99 for 205 ft. There's nothing on the box to indicate whether it's coated or not. It says it's nonstick.

              Where do they stock it? With the aluminum foil?

                Yes, in that same general area. The box is kind of a lime green.

                1. re: Robert Lauriston

                  In Richmond Costco it was in the last aisle on the left right across from the first refrigerator row.

                  1. re: Robert Lauriston

                    It was sold out, that's why I didn't see it. They said they had more and would shelve it.

                    1. re: Robert Lauriston

                      Today 10:30 more than 500 boxes just across from the eggs. If you hurry they may still have some.

                    164 feet, so a little over six cents a foot. Better than online even before shipping.

                      The disparity in #s is the game the manufacturer is playing. Yes there are 205 sq. ft. in a box, however, the paper roll is 164 feet long and 15' wide. My "If You Care" is 70 ft but is only 13" wide to perfectly fit my cookie sheet.

                        If you can make it to the Vallejo Costco, I've seen it in stock as one of the display items on the main aisle the last three times I've been there over the last month and a half.

                      2. re: goodeatsgal

                        Just came back from Costco in Novato. They are fully stocked and at a special price - $7.49 a roll (built-in manufacturer's rebate at purchase).

                  3. Have you tried Amazon? Last time we bought parchment paper from them shipping was free with a >$25 order.

                      Only some of the parchment paper Amazon carries has free shipping. Nothing uncoated with a total price under 10 cents a foot.

                    2. Daiso sells smaller rolls of parchment paper for $1.50. I usually get mine from safeway when it's on sale (and usually there are coupons for it).
