About Grocery Outlet, History and Headquarters Information


Grocery Outlet was founded in the year 1946. The company has been operational for almost 73 years now. The founder of the company was James Read. The founder of the company used to buy government surplus food products and then later sold them in previously vacant stores throughout San Francisco, USA. The former name of the company was Cannery Sales. In the year 1970, the company had acquired Globe of California and then renamed it Canned Foods as well. Canned Foods started selling closeout, factory second, and also discounted products as well. Then in the year 1971, Canned Foods had signed its first agreement with a supplier, which was known as Del Monte Foods. The company then later signed agreements with entities such as ConAgra, the Quaker Oats Company, and also Revlon. Canned Foods had opened its first independent store in Redmond, Oregon, USA, in the year 1973.

In the year 1982, the founder of the company had passed away and therefore his sons, Peter and Steven Read had taken over the operations of the company. In the year 1987, the company’s name was changed to Grocery Outlet. By the year 1995, almost 100 stores were opened by the company. In the year 2001, the company had acquired all remaining liquidated inventories of Webvan, following the online grocery delivery service’s bankruptcy. The same year, the company had taken over an online retailer named Wine.com, along with its remaining inventory following that retailer’s bankruptcy as well. Then in the year 2002, the company had changed its corporate name to Grocery Outlet Incorporated. The company had taken over 16 Yes Less grocery stores in Texas, USA, and another in Louisiana from a Texas-based company known as Fleming, in the year 2003. The following year, all of the 17 stores were closed as well. In the year 2007, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit had awarded Albertsons an injunction against Grocery Outlet, mainly over its use of the Lucky brand name in a store based in Rocklin, California, USA. Then in the year 2009, the company had added ‘Bargain Market’ to its store branding as well. As of the year 2011, the company had acquired the Pennsylvania-based chain, known as Amelia’s Grocery Outlet. In the year 2014, private equity fund Hellman & Friedman had agreed to partner up with senior management and also acquire Grocery Outlet from its principal owner, Berkshire Partners. Finally, in the year 2018, the Board of Directors of the company had appointed Eric Lindberg to the CEO post and MacGregor Read to the vice chairman post as well. The headquarters of the company is based in 5650 Hollis Street. The name of the place is Emeryville, while the name of the state is California, USA. The pin code of the area is 94608.

    Sisters, Oregon is a busy small down, and one of three roads to Eastern Oregon from the populated Willamette Valley, and have been clamoring and begging for a Grocery Outlet. They only have an expensive Roth’s Market as a grocery store.

  • Edward Lind says:

    You need to put a store in Cle Elum, WA. We only have Safeway and they have been there for over 40 years and their prices are high. There are over 600 homes being built and you have Suncadia Resort there. I know the store would be very profitable. The closest store is in Ellensburg, WA but people do not want to drive 30 miles away.

    I am sending this after some months of wrongfully being let go by the location on knott and lincoln ave in Anaheim I’d worked they’re since July 15 2020 to Aug 19 2021 the original owners left in June of 2021 to a new location the new owners took over taking apart the entire store guests upset. On July 1 2021 they neglectfully put 5 pallets in the deli cooler 3 is pushing it so I called a Co worker to help unload a few pallets before I was off so that no one got hurt when they open the door would be walking right into the pallets blocking the door to refill anything inside. While unloading a pallet I caught the corner of the pallet falling between that and another pallet and dislocated my ring finger and bruised a knee I went to they’re worker comp doctor for a few weeks was release beginning of August and the week before August 19th me and 2 Co workers reported to the owners nephew that one of they’re workers was staring creepily at myself and another coworker on August 19th I was told I was being let go for a complaint the store has had dozens of complaints from customers since they took over we had complaints even with the old managers. I was wrongfully fired aft we reporting inappropriate behavior from one of they’re guys and very shortly after the accident. I tried to hire lawyers but for some reason keep dropping my case so now I’m letting corperate know because what happend to me is wrong and they should not be aloud to get away with this

  • Linda Sena says:

    Is it corporate policy to keep restrooms closed for shopping customers in the Lake Forest California store this is unacceptable

  • Marylou Palmer says:

    Is it your policy where people have to make an appointment to cash in your bottle deposit? The Dalles, Oregon store.

  • Leronda Follings says:

    Hello, I bought two umbrellas a week ago and I came into the store to shop and noticed they were marked down to 30% off the regular price I had the receipt and both umbrellas with me and wanted them for the sale price and the Manger came out to tell me that the store owner will not take the umbrellas back and let me have them for the sale price. Wow…is this your policy? I have been a customer for many years and never incountered this before. Sincerely Leronda Follings

  • kenny says:

    100% of what chris sand says is whats going on in Winston Oregon. Unacceptable.

  • Sharon says:

    Have a complaint about a cashier here at cost plus 10 whose recept says Food Outlet.

  • Christopher Sand says:

    I’m very concerned with the safety of the employees at the Grass Valley, Ca store.
    With the governor of California mandating a stay at home order because of the Corina virus but grocery store will remain open. I totally understand why food needs be available. What I’m concerned with is, no personal protective equipment (PPE) is being used to protect the workers.
    This is totally unacceptable!
    You as their employer, should not only supply the PPE, your should enforce that it be worn during work hours. Please help in this prevention of the speading of this very contagious virus.
    Just think of what would happen if something happened to one of your employees. It could also save you alot of revenue with possible future lawsuits when this is all over.
    Thank you

    • Dave says:

      Same situation in Long Beach. All shoppers wearing a mask but one employee was not. The store manager told me she does not want to wear a mask. Whaaaa? I am absolutely done with this store.

  • B . E . Taylor says:

    too bad your grocery outlet ( in Selah , Washington ) does not follow the example of the many other affiliated stores I have shopped in . ( Still do when I am traveling ) I had the misfortune ; for the third time when they ran out of advertised special …to believe them when they said they had more coming in on Monday … Yet when I take them to the counter they say … oh not the right one… Should have listened to my kids when they said that is why they go shop at the one in Yakima instead of dealing with the B>S> they receive at this store … Oh , well ……. if corporate doesn’t care then I can certainly learn from the kids and their friends … Why shop where they only attend to their friends . No wonder the Yakima store is always doing lots of business .

  • Alan Brown says:
