Discount Food Store

This morning I learned of a dent store, a place to buy things where cans are dented, or promotions are over, items are past expiration date, boxes were crushed...you get the idea. I didn't call first, I just figured they were open.
There hours are M-Th 9:30am - 5pm, and F 9:30am - 6pm.
They do not take coupons and are cash only.
Anyone going into the store must have shoes shirt and pants on. =)
And no smoking outside their door on their benches.

I think they have 6 baskets. We filled up 3.5 of them. The owners were very nice helping us store the filled baskets and move the little boys into empty carts. It isn't very big, about the size of a convenience store. There is also a little back room (really little, your cart will barely go in there)with non food items from cat litter to paper plates to dish detergent. Surprisingly we were in there an hour. We'll be going back for sure. The shipments seem a bit sporadic but she did say there is one coming in sometime next week she thought from Colorado that was from Safeway and she said it always had good stuff. Today we spent $71.57.

Examples of food we found: pop tarts, cereal, koolaid packets, jello, spaghetti sauce, canned peppers, canned veggies, soup, pie filling, cake/brownie mixes, icing, juice, yeast, condiments, dressings, crackers, fruit snacks, gum, dog treats, paper plates, cat litter, dish detergent, dry beans, big cans of veggies; there was a lot more but we can't remember it all.

Note: The lines are running together. I've listed the item, the size of the item, the expiration date
