Oxford's no.1 Discount/Aftermarket Groceries & Bent & Dent Groceries
The cans may have a dent or two, and the corner of the boxes might be a little bent, but the food inside is as good as it ever was, and customers can buy them at a much lower price than grocery or super centers.
Harvest Market sells perfectly good food, laundry supplies and other items at a much lower price than major & independent grocery stores. People ask how we do afford to do this and the answer is simple, we buy salvage, bent and dent items from reclamation centers here in Wisconsin.
Accidents happen, even in the grocery business. If a case of green beans gets dropped, and a couple of cans get bent, those cans (and sometimes the whole case) do not make it to the grocery store shelves. Instead, they're sent to a reclamation center, where broken jars are discarded, cans with leaks are destroyed and the rest of the products are then shipped to a distributor, who sells to stores like Harvest Market.
In other cases, undamaged grocery items become salvage because their "use by" date is getting close, or because the item just didn't sell well in that area. Jalapenos sell well in Texas, maybe not so well in Illinois. Sometimes the reason the item becomes salvage is seasonal. A lot of Halloween items show up in November and Christmas items show up in January.
Prices are low because they need to be in this type of store. Because we can buy huge quantities of grocery items each month, we are able to get high quality, name brand groceries as well as other products and sell them for a lot less. The bottom line is. Come to Harvest Market for the same goods you buy at the major grocery stores, experience the same quality name brands you have come to love, and SAVE MONEY doing it!
