"The extreme-value grocer sees an opportunity to go national"
It’s been a busy year for Grocery Outlet. At a time when most major grocers have curbed their growth, the chain — which operates in Pennsylvania and the western states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada and California — opened 30 new stores this year and plans to open 40 more this year, putting it up there with the industry's fastest growers.
Layla Kasha, Vice President of Marketing for Grocery Outlet says:
"A new store in downtown Los Angeles, for example, is modern and hip, focusing on clean lines and a design aesthetic that matches the surrounding area."
