Residents of Airway Heights now have a new place to do their grocery shopping with the recent opening of a new Grocery Outlet store at 10831 W. US 2 on the east side of the city. This is the 6th store in the Inland Northwest for the chain which has been described as like a TJ Maxx but for food.
The Airway Heights Grocery Outlet store sells all the same grocery lines as other Grocery Outlet locations. However given the chain's business model of selling sell out merchandise from other grocery vendors some exact brands an items are not always in stock, but when they are they are sold at prices sometimes substantially lower then the other big grocery retailers.
This new Grocery Outlet is an anchor of the new Hayford Crossing shopping center nearby the corner of US 2 & Hayford Rd. The store is joined by Dollar Tree, Pawn 1 and others in the new plaza with the Grocery Outlet store occupying 17,500 square feet of space. The new store created about 25 new jobs and an increase in the local sales tax base. At this time no other Grocery Outlet stores are planned in the area to our knowledge, although the area around the new Airway Heights store continues to grow with a possible new Walgreens ,Ace Hardware and more planned within half mile of the new store.
Grocery Outlet is California based grocery store chain that was founded in the 1940's originally as Canned Foods Grocery Outlet. Today the chain's 240 or so stores are full line grocers with everything from general grocery to frozen to beer & wine and more. Their stores even have a section they call NOSH ( Natural, Organic, Specialty, Healthy ) for the more healthier , upscale grocery items one might not expect to find at a discount grocery store.
