While Lani Chan’s article was generally well written, she omitted two grocery stores within the city of Davis. Westlake Market is located in the Westlake Plaza in West Davis. It has been open now for a little over a year and a half and offers a 5 percent discount to all college students. It is small in size in comparison to Safeway and Nugget, but it has earned positive reviews for the quality of service there. Davis Wiki has an excellent article of Westlake Market that may be found online. The Grocery Outlet is just that – a grocery outlet! While many of the items are brands that very few have heard of, they do offer some name brands such as Ocean Spray and General Mills. This is the place to go for REALLY low grocery prices. However, since they purchase overstocked products from food warehouses you never know what will be offered from week to week. If you recognize that The Grocery Outlet is not a place for one-stop shopping, it is an excellent place to go to stock up on good deals and then, afterward, complete your shopping at one of the other stores. It’s a great way to save on your food bill! Again, Davis Wiki has a good write-up of the store.
