Did you know Grocery Outlet has a 20% off wine sale twice a year? The fall event started today (11/6) and runs through 11/10 only, but you’ll want to hurry for the best selection.
These wines are already on deep discount from what you’d pay at other area retailers, so to get 20% is like the icing on the cake! My South Tacoma store goes all out for this sale. Just look for the giant wine bottle with balloons on 56th street driving past!
If you’re local, you might be interested to know that tonight they’re having a free wine tasting from 5:30 – 7pm (South Tacoma store location). They’ll be featuring Washington Wines, so this would be a good time to check out the sale and try before you buy. (Obviously, this is for 21+ customers and you’ll want to have a valid driver’s license handy!)
Store manager Christopher is very enthusiastic about wine – and this wine sale! It’s pretty clear he wants you to know that you can save 20% on ALL wine right now! And if you don’t know a thing about wine? Just look for him and ask! He’s super friendly and knowledgeable. He always makes good recommendations for me. As a matter of fact, I shot an impromptu video with him today in the store chatting about the wines I ended up buying. I think the video should be up at the South Tacoma Grocery Outlet Facebook page sometime today, so you can follow them on Facebook to keep an eye out for that!
I wanted to give you an idea of the kind of prices you can find right now under this sale… a $3.99 Riesling (elsewhere $10.99!), a sweet red for $3.99 (elsewhere $7.99)…and I picked up a fancy pants bottle of red wine for $4.99 (elsewhere $14.99). After the 20% discount, the $3.99 bottles dropped to $3.19 and the $4.99 to $3.99! No coupon needed, no limit.
I did want to highlight the best wine deal I found today:
This Black Box Moscato was selling for just $5.99! After the discount, you’d pay $4.79. Elsewhere you’d pay as much as $21.99. In fact, Christopher showed me a photo he’d snapped of this SAME wine at another nearby grocery store (which shall remain unnamed!) that was selling for $16 (on sale). Here’s why this is such a good deal – that one box holds the equivalent of FOUR 750 ml wine bottles. So that’s like paying about $1.20 per bottle of wine. Plus, this pack stays tidy in your fridge and fresh for up to 4 weeks. Awesome for holiday entertaining!
While there, I found a few additional stellar deals in the store I wanted to share with you.
Physician’s Formula Organic Wear: $2.99!
Project Runway Lipstick: $1.99! (Sidebar: I actually did buy this for myself. If you bump into me out and about, try not to confuse me for Heidi Klum. Sidebar 2: I actually wrote a coupon spoof on Project Runway a couple years ago, complete with an appearance for Tim Gunn. If you like Project Runway, you pretty much need to check it out.)
I also found a box of Revlon nail art for $1.50 each – elsewhere, pay as much as $9.99.
Hairbrushes: $0.99. Seems like there were lots of extra good deals today in the beauty department!
Stix: Gluten-free crisps for $0.99. I bought a bag of these and I think they are pretty tasty.
Muller Yogurt: $0.33 each. This stuff is good if you’ve not tried it yet. I usually find it priced for about $1 elsewhere.
Sara Lee Cracked Pepper Turkey Breast. So this seemed like a REALLY good deal to me! The package I’m holding was roughly 2.25 lbs and was selling for $7.95! It looked like really nice deli meat you could carve.
Immaculate Baking Scones & Biscuits: $1.49. These contain no GMOs or trans fats and are generally much more expensive in the stores!
Heinz gravy is advertised as buy one, get one free this week. I was wondering if the letter next to the product was to retract the offer…
But no. It was actually a letter stating that the actual deal was better than advertised: two jars of gravy for $1 total, not $1.99. That put a smile on my face.
Kids’ Arts & Crafts sets: $4.99. These would make nice holiday gifts to add to toy drives!Oster Breadmaker: $29.99 (elsewhere: $89.99). This is a very good reason why you should make sure to check all the aisles at Grocery Outlet high and low. This puppy was sitting on the very top shelf of the housewares aisle.
