CANTON – The Outlet at Canton Village won’t likely meet all your weekly grocery needs but its owners say customers will save big on grocery staples, teas and coffees, vacuum packed meats, dairy items, produce and more.

“We strive to be 35 to 40 percent less than the competition,” said store general manager and Canton resident Rich Depault.

Depault wasn’t quite ready to lock in on an opening date but said it would be very soon.

The Outlet, which already operates a Southington location, carries a wide variety of items, including organic and gluten-free options, all at low prices, Depault said.

He said the prices will beat grocery stores, other discount outlets and even large warehouse chains. To get there, The Outlet purchases items other stores reject due to factors such as short code (short-term expiration dates) or salvage (dented cans, etc.)

Depault said the store gets its products from major suppliers, including ones that serve Whole Foods and other major chains.

While the Southington location carries larger items such as ladders and furniture, the Canton store, at  is a little smaller and will focus on food, Depault said. There will be some health and beauty items and pet supplies as well.

Depault acknowledged that some items, such as produce, will be hit or miss, depending on what deals he can find.

“If the deal is not there for me to offer, we don’t do it,” he said.

But Depault said people should check in regularly because there’s always something new.

“The variety will change 20 percent weekly,” he said.

The store will open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

It is located in Canton Village Plaza at 220 Albany Turnpike on Route 44.
