Has anybody noticed the transformation of the beloved Grocery Outlet store near you? (Ours is north of Ballard in Seattle…) Has anybody noticed that their selection of neat and hard-to-find deals has been in decline and that it’s just not as exciting to go there any more? It’s strange, but it feels to me like one of their main purchasers has left the company… either that or their precipitous rise (they seem to be opening new locations at a healthy clip here in Washington State) has begun to take its toll. Come on GO, you can do it! Don’t let rapid expansion ruin what made you unique!
