The Benefits To Shopping at Ocean State Job Lot
Ocean States Job Lot has become one of my most frequently shopped stores. 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. Come learn the Benefits To Shopping at Ocean State. If you are one who loves to save without coupons you most definitely want to check out your nearest Ocean State.
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.
Did you Know?
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.
Why The Savings are SO BIG!
Ocean State acquires many brand-name goods whose manufacturers are willing to 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 use to fill their shelves that they restock on a regular basis.
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 “planogram” space they will always carry that product (Such as Bob Red Mill Products).
Some of the items they carry such as Olive Oil will always be available as well. However, the brand that they carry will vary greatly.
You will always find the following:
- 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.

We love them, we use them and Ocean State accepts them. (Jumping for joy) They will accept all forms of manufacture coupons and they offer store coupons that can be used in conjunction with these coupons.
Please keep in mind that at Ocean State you can use one manufacturer coupon to purchase as many as the limit is instructed on their store coupons. There is only ONE stipulation; Printable coupons – You see they will only accept two like printable coupons in one transaction. So keep that in mind when printing coupons off the internet.
NOW THAT is a whole lot of SAVINGS!
