Why You Should Shop at Ocean State Job Lot
Our family just LOVES shopping at Ocean State Job Lots! I am very excited to open your eyes to the savings opportunities you can find on the items you normally purchase. If you are one who loves to save without coupons, you most definitely want to check out your nearest Ocean State.
In fact, I find many deals with and without coupons that are a heck of a lot cheaper than shopping at the grocery store.
Really!! I did say cheaper without coupons.
I find that their everyday prices are drastically reduced. Did your eyes just light up? I hope so. Come on, this journey with me to learn more about why you should check out your local Ocean State Job Lots store.
Ocean State Job Lot has become one of my most frequently shopped stores.
I find myself shopping almost weekly for our grocery staples and other items our family needs. Ocean State Job Lot is a discount closeout retailer that sells a variety of products – from food, home decor, and pet supplies to clothing, health essentials, and beauty supplies – at discount prices.
Did you know? – Fun Fact About Ocean State
Did you know that Ocean State store properties are typically opened after the closing of a major grocery store chain or discount store used to be located?
In fact, they also use the previous store’s fixtures (checkout counters, checkout lane number lights, etc.) Wherever possible to cut costs and bring the saving to you. Their store offers a “no bones” approach.
Not only does Ocean State’s name come from Rhode Island’s nickname, “The Ocean State”, but it is where their first stores originated from. They now have over 150+ stores, five of which are located in the capital district.
Why The Savings are SO BIG!
Ocean State acquires many brand-name goods whose manufacturers will sell them at a loss following overstocking or discontinuation of products.
Not all products are purchased in this manner. They have many new items (not just closeout or overstocked products) that they used to fill their shelves that they restock regularly.
Deals You Will ALWAYS Find at Ocean State
While many products and brands will be hit or miss, they will always carry many of the specific items listed below. Here is a hint, if it has a permanent fixture within the store as part of their “planigram” space, they will always carry that product (Such as Bob Red Mill Products).
Some items they carry, such as olive oil, will always be available as well. However, the brand that they carry will differ.
You will always find:
- Bob’s Red Mill Products
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Snacks (Chips, Pretzels, Candy, etc)
- Pet Supplies
Sales & Discounts
Ocean State stores do not run on a routine sale cycle, such as grocery stores typically do (every 6 to 8 weeks).
You can expect to find select deals on Spices, Bob’s Red Mill, at 20 – 25% off just about quarterly. Stock up on those items you love and wait for the next sale because it will happen.
