I order a lot of food items from a discount overstock site. It has a lot of vegan items, but has paleo and keto items.

I noticed that non vegan items are really slow to move, and seem to spend weeks on the site, and the vegan items are gone really fast.

Beef and chicken jerky stay a really long time, but vegan jerky is out of stock the same day.

I went on one morning, right after their new items dropped, and almost missed getting quick meals from Dr McDougall's, Vana Life, and Tasty Bite. Within minutes after I placed my order, they sold out. I mean these items literally sold out in about 10 minutes.

I went past the Morningstar Farms and Gardien section of the freezers, and it looked really picked over.

Just what I have been observing.

Don't suppose it's Grocery Outlet? One is coming not far from me
What I've found in regular grocery stores is I'll notice the sell by date on like Beyond or Impossible stuff, where there is a lot of stock, go back just before that date--and it's all gone!

This is an online discount grocery. I just order online, and they ship it to me. I started there because I was getting high end coffee and tea brands cheap, but started ordering a lot of the healthy, fast meals and sauces. The stuff is not past date, just overstock. It is a minimum of 50% of what it sells for on Amazon.

My major problem is that they usually drop a bunch of stuff that I would really like right after I made an order.

They only sell shelf stable stuff.

There is a past date place near my daughter. I go there when I visit.

I'm in a discount grocery desert. No Costco, Sam's Club, Trader Joe's, or any discount place. That is why I started going online.

What's it name. or a link. I order stuff online - from Amazon.
I'm always running out of soy milk so I like to buy cartons of shelf stable to keep on hand.

Here is a referral code for $10 off on first order. I get $10 off for referring you, too. Not the reason, but it is nice to get a little off.
