Grocery Outlet To Open On Geary@28th Avenue!?!

DavidT Oct 17, 2012 03:10 PM

Word is a Grocery Outlet Store will take over the building that housed the Delano/CalaFoods supermarkets on Geary at 28th Avenue in San Francisco.

Looks like they have found a spot in Visitacion Valley as well.

    I am excited since I live close and have hoped for a grocery store in that spot. So, what do I have to look forward to with the Grocery Outlet? If you were comparing stores what does it most resemble- a Safeway, a TJ's or Smart and Final or something else? Thanks for the news!

      If Pack and Save is one step down from Safeway, Grocery Outlet is two or three steps down from Pack and Save. Some great bargains, lots of weird crap.

        foodseek -

        If you get a chance, you could visit the Grocery Outlet on Hickey Blvd. in South San Fran to scope out what a GO store sells. They now carry fresh fruit & veg, as well as meat, cheese, dairy, etc..

        A GO store is a bit of a treasure hunt, but I typically spend anywhere from $30 to $80 when I go shopping there once or twice a month.

        Here is what chowhounders are finding at GO this month:

            Thank you for the information. Since visiting the South San Francisco store- I am excited about future good buys at the new store on Geary. The shopping is a bit of a treasure hunt but fun.

          It's a treasure hunt. Sometimes you find a nugget, sometimes you find fool's gold.

          also check out the article from Sunday's chronicle:


          It's sure to be one of the better ones. I for one am extremely excited, and have become a GO outlet fan over that last five years.
