HOME OF THE 25-CENT CANDY BARS!
We are a family-operated grocery store, serving friends and neighbors in our corner of Perry County. We are around 6 miles east of Somerset Ohio, about half an hour from New Lexington & Zanesville.
We purchased these 13 acres back in November of 2017, and spent the next few months making it into a grocery store. The big project was the addition that now makes up our main entrance, connecting the two buildings into one. Walls and floors had to be painted, general updates made, and shelving installed. Things always take longer than expected, and our prospective customers wanted to know if we would EVER get done!
We are Christian people, part of the local Mennonite community. We desire to share the love of God with those around us in our everyday business dealings. There is also an Amish group in the area, and one of the families runs a nice bulk food store several miles from us.
Our location was once a nine-hole golf course and indoor driving range. The folks who first developed the property put in lots of time and effort, and today we enjoy the park-like setting they designed! A local Mennonite building crew, friends of ours, put up the original structures. Later it sold and became a convenience store and pizza shop.
Our grocery store caters to people in the Somerset Ohio area who are working hard to find bargains for their families. We want to help you stretch your food dollars in today's difficult economy. Since we're also fairly close to New Lexington & Zanesville, we invite you to stop in and take advantage of our half-price groceries and other discounts!
Most of all, WE LOOK FORWARD TO INTERACTING WITH EACH OF YOU. We appreciate your choice of business, and enjoy getting to know our customers as friends.

What exactly is "Discount Groceries," also known as "Bent 'n' Dent," "Banana Box," or "Salvage"? For some people, such a designation conjures mental images of outdated food that's stale, moldy, and generally unfit to eat. (Not to mention unappetizing!) But it doesn't have to be that way! There are numerous warehouses that specialize in salvaging groceries. For a huge store like Meijer or Wal-Mart, it's easier to ship groceries to a salvage warehouse than to waste time discounting them in-store. Sometimes the items are close to the sell-by date, and the store needs to rotate its stock. We sell lots of this type of non-perishable groceries. Also, we get many dented cans, simply because they don't look nice (thus the name Bent 'n' Dent). Other times a whole store might go out of business in a certain location, so again it's all boxed up (in banana boxes) and sent to the salvage company. The bottom line is that the big stores are happy just to make a little off their cast-off commodities rather than take a total loss, so we can get pallets of groceries for less than wholesale price. As a result... you save money too!
