Bargain Finds



By Suzanne O'Connor

Family run business are always fun for me to recommend. They generally tend to have better deals!

As a liquidator for Costco and a few other companies, GR-Outlet strives to please their customers by offering savings of 30-70% on name brand clothing, furniture, housewares, kitchen ware, linens, children’s items, rugs and even mattresses.

Bigger than most small liquidation companies, you’ll enjoy a good selection without feeling cramped.

I first took a look at the home furnishings. Nothing high-end, but definitely good for small apartments, dorms and condos. I liked a modern, metal frame sofa / love combo for $699… in a choice of 3 colors.  Market price should probably be closer to $899.  An apartment sized sectional was $499 instead of $699. A premium Re-Built (recycled coils, new fabric & soft content) full sized mattress was $160 and the upholstered bed frame was also just $160.

In the housewares, kitchen and the home section I found a Henckels 18/10 Saute pan for $19.99 instead of $75-$85. A Cuisinart Stainless pot was $24.99 instead of $42-$55.  A boxed modern floor lamp was $49.99 instead of $89.99. A pair of Pacific Coast Down Surround pillows were $24.99 instead of $88. A Kirkland 540TC, queen 100% cotton sheet set was $39.99 instead $59.99. Quality bath towels ran $5.99 and a Rowenta Steam Point iron was $49.99.

The clothing had typical Costco brand names and ran an average of $9-$12 each but on Fridays thru Sundays they discount an additional 50%. A really good selection of men’s shirts here.

I was charmed but the staff who offered me cold water and were there when I had questions, without being obtrusive.

This slightly rough around the edges outlet is definitely a neighborhood haunt. I saw a lot of regulars come in, get greeted by name and quickly helped with what they wanted.

I wanted to snap up several deals here but was told that though they are not sure what they will get with each shipment, they tend to get repeat items.

A cool discount outlet for San Gabriel peeps. You’ll come in again and again to save. I know I will!
