Do you buy mostly organic food? If so you know it is not the most inexpensive way to eat. Those of us who go out of our way to eat organic usually believe that the true cost of eating any other way is much higher than eating organic....but that does not mean we LIKE paying higher to eat more healthily...
So for all of you who like to eat organic food and like to use organic cleaning products and so on, there is a well kept secret on the South End of Tacoma. It is called McGregors. You will find it just off the corner of 84th and Pacific, just past the Walgreens. It is a little 2 story building that does not even look much like a store, but it is.
McGregors is a discount organic food store. What will you find there? Well it's al little different every time. If you find something you and your family eat all the time, be ready to really really stock up!
Mc Gregors's is located @ 8431 Pacific Ave, Tacoma WA 98444, Their phone # is 253 267 5497.
On an average day you would likely find canned goods ( veggies, tomatoe sauces and fruit) Organic Juices, Soy, rice, almond milk, hot and cold cereals, mac and cheese, nuts, candy, broths and soups, cookies, chips and much much more. You will also find things you would not eat, but would still like to have organic, like your shampoos, lotions and soaps as well.
Some of the items are just a bit less than you would spend else where and other things are a really really deep discount. ( Buy by the case when you find this, as likely they will be all gone next time) A recent trip yeilded 32 oz organic chicken and veggie broth 4 for a $1, Organic Tomato Soup and Acorn Squash Soup 4 for a $1 and Organic corn chips 2 for $1. I would have spend $2.75- $3.50 each for those items at a regular store. The last time we shopped there I came home with almost a truck bed full of food for less than $125.00. Can't beat this!
For those of you who've been going there for a long time....good news, they now as of about 2 weeks ago take debit and credit cards, not just cash any more!
I like the friendly atmosphere as well and the kids look forward to seeing the resident cat while we shop.
When our family does our major shopping we go there first and then buy what ever McGregor's does not have elsewhere. Do the same and you could be eating healthier AND saving $200-400 a month for your family too!
