Burney’s new Grocery Outlet just days from celebrating their Grand Opening

BURNEY, Calif. — With the newly constructed Grocery Outlet Bargain Market’s Grand Opening just two days away, residents of the Intermountain area more than just a little excited to soon have another local option for “big savings on name brand, high-quality merchandise.”

With their Grand Opening scheduled for this Thursday, July 9, the store is in the final stages of preparation and almost ready to open their doors to the public and begin accepting customers.

With anticipation and excitement for the store’s opening growing daily, the store’s owners, Intermountain area residents Jesse and Sharon Johnson, recently told SCNS, “We appreciate the support and love we have received from throughout the community and we are extremely excited to ‘WOW’ our customers with high quality products and great savings.”

According to corporate officials, Grocery Outlet offers “the same trusted brands as traditional grocery stores, but at lower prices.”

“Its buyers scour the country to find the top manufacturers with excess inventory and seasonal closeouts so Grocery Outlet can offer ‘WOW savings’ on thousands of name-brand products at significantly lower prices.

Officials also explained that Grocery Outlet stores are independently operated by “local families and individuals who are committed to supporting their communities.”

According to corporate officials, Jesse – who has an MBA from University of Redlands and spent many years operating three, family-owned Del Taco franchises and also has a long retail history working with Walgreens and Home Depot – and Sharon, who has a BS in Business from Cal State San Bernardino, are a perfect example of qualified local owners operating stores within their own communities.

“We are overjoyed to be a part of the Burney community and to be able to provide big savings on quality groceries,” Jesse and Sharon told SCNS. “This partnership with Grocery Outlet gives us the ability to grow our business, create new jobs and more importantly, give back to our local community.”

The opening of the Burney Grocery Outlet created more than thirty new jobs for residents within the Intermountain area, a fact the Johnsons were proud to point out.

“Everything shoppers need
at the lowest possible prices.”

In addition to groceries, general and seasonal merchandise, and beauty supplies – the new store will feature a well-stocked beer and wine selection. Along with a wide selection of import, domestic and craft beers, shoppers will find “a fantastic” wine section, with more than fifty of their favorite varietals priced under $5.

With just two days left before Grocery Outlet’s Grand Opening and the store nearly fully stocked and ready to go, store owners Jesse and Sharon Johnson say all that is left to do is to stock the store’s perishable, fresh-food departments with items such as milk, eggs, produce, meat, and deli selections.

The new store will also have an entire “NOSH” aisle, “featuring Natural, Organic, Specialty, and Health related items,” explained Jesse and Sharon; saying these items, which are distinctively highlighted by the use of green tags, will also be located throughout the store. 

“We source our products opportunistically, which means that you save 40-70%,” the Johnsons explained.

“In addition to great deals on opportunistic products – staples like milk, meat, and eggs – are always available at Grocery Outlet” Jesse and Sharon continued.

“Because sourcing these products as excess inventory may be limited, we are priced extremely competitively; as our goal is to offer our products at or below the lowest price in town,” the new owners explained; adding, “We think it’s important to provide the basics, for your convenience – this way, you save an extra trip, and shop comfortably knowing you’re getting the best price around.”

“We’re ready to ‘WOW’ our customers
with more than just groceries.”

Saying, “We’re excited to ‘WOW’ guests with our deals,” the Johnson’s said that to enhance their customers’ savings, every month the store will hold a drawing called “Win What You Save!”

The couple went on to explain, “When you buy from us, your receipt will state how much you saved on your purchase and shoppers can win that amount back in the form of a gift card to the store.

Saying, “With our Grand Opening fast approaching, we want to show our thanks for the gracious support we’ve received from the Intermountain community by giving back,” store owners and local residents Jesse and Sharon Johnson told SCNS, “We are overjoyed to be a part of the Burney community.” Grocery Outlet photo

“So, for example, if a shopper happened to save $72.40 on their weekly trip to Grocery Outlet, that is how much the gift card would be if they won.”

Shoppers can enter as often as they want and since there is a new drawing every month, everyone in the community will have a chance at winning.

“How exciting is that?!?!” the couple enthused.

“We want to show our thanks to the community
by giving back.”

“With our Grand Opening fast approaching, we want to show our thanks for the gracious support we’ve received from the Intermountain community by giving back,” the Johnsons continued; saying, “We are in search of five local families or individuals who are in need of a little help.”

Based on input and nominations from local residents, the Johnsons will be selecting five families or individuals to each receive $100 gift cards and those selected will be notified July 13.

All nominations will remain completely anonymous and details on how to nominate a local family or individual can be found at the store or on the Burney Grocery Outlet’s Facebook page.

The Johnsons have also pledged to donate $1,400 to Friends of the Intermountain Libraries Inc. (FOIL), to help with their opening of the new Burney Library.

Also, as part of their Grand Opening, from July 9th through August 6th, the store will have a booth set up where new customers can sign up to win $1,200 worth of groceries.

With store construction complete and most of the store already stocked, the Johnsons said that their focus this week will be bringing in and stocking all the perishable, fresh-food departments with items such as milk, eggs, produce, meat, and deli selections.

According to the Johnsons, although all their current positions have already been filled, the store is still accepting applications and will be keeping them on file to fill future positions as they open.
