Lois is a third generation Grocery Outlet employee and our biggest fan.  Her interests include shopping at Grocery Outlet, visiting with Grocery Outlet customers, saving people money, kickboxing, and visiting neighborhood lemonade stands on the weekends.

Favorite meal: Whatever Grocery Outlet has on its WOW wall. "Last week I had mac and cheese. I saved so much money, I was able to buy dessert – and I love dessert. I never skip it. Ever."

Favorite quote: "A penny saved is a penny earned. But several dollars saved probably means you’ve been to Grocery Outlet."

Tammy Underspend

Tammy Underspend - Pine Meadow Junior High School English Teacher, Mother
Tammy is one of our best customers.  As a mom, she knows how important it is to be able to feed a family on a budget.  Her interests include coaching her daughter's soccer team, skeet shooting, watching reality TV shows about dancing, and throwing fabulous dinner parties on a budget.

Favorite meal: "Birthday cake. We have it at least once a week in our house, because even if it’s not my birthday, it’s someone’s birthday. Might as well celebrate."

Favorite Quote: "Dance as though no one’s watching. Sing like no one can hear you. Shop only when you can afford to. And, lastly, yodeling is okay…but only behind closed doors."

Ben Saven

Ben Saven -  Furniture store sales, Blogger (“Ben’s Bargain Bloggapotamus”)
Ben is a local blogger that writes about the great deals he finds at Grocery Outlet. He likes singing, collecting vinyl records, competitive hopscotch, walks on the beach, and Lois.

Favorite meal: "I like to grill burgers outside, then I cook some fries in the oven, then I put the fries right on top of the hamburger so I get burger and fries in every bite. I call it ‘The Frurger’. Oh, and I LOVE chocolate. I’d put it on anything…even a Frurger."

Favorite quote: "Smile, and the world smiles with you. Sing, and you never really know what they’re going to do."


Doug - Musician, Composer, and Environmental Activist
Doug is the chillest guy we know.  He likes fantasy football, indoor rock climbing, restoring antique ukuleles, and spending time with his wife of 18 years, Veronica. 

Favorite meal: "Vegan tofu chili served with ice-cold, maple-syrup-sweetened lemonade."

Favorite quote: "I like to play guitar, some folks think that I’m a star and I have a fancy car, though I don’t know how to drive so I sometimes feel deprived."

Yeah, we don’t get it either.
