We have a local store called Presto that just opened to the general public. Before you had to have a business to be able to shop there. I think this is a Quebec chain, but it might give people ideas. They normally supply depanneurs, restaurants and small businesses. Some items are the same price as regular grocery stores, but others are fantastic. You can buy stuff in bulk, and they have lower prices if you buy more than one.<br><br>
For example:<br><br>
1 pk of chocolate chips = $2.15 or buy 3 @ $1.39 each. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> (Because we all need chocolate!)<br><br>
I bought a massive container of cinnamon for $3.99 when they sell little envelopes in reg grocery stores for $2.<br><br>
And best of all:<br>
I found Yeast in bulk! 2.2lbs of yeast for $7.49. Normally you buy those little envelopes for a couple dollars or tiny jar for $5. I've think I've found the secret to making my own inexpensive, healthy, home baked bread.<br><br>
It's the type of store that you shop at a couple times a year to fill your pantry and freezer. I think I've found a way to lower our grocery bill.<br><br>
I'm so excited!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/jumpers.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jumpers">:<br><br>
Spending less on food = more money in savings for down payment on house. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Awesome!!<br><br>
In the US, our version of that is Sam's Club (which is owned by walmart), Cotsco and I think there are a few more.<br><br>
Sometimes the buys are great, other times not so good<br>
Good Find<br>
