Hmmm... that sounds like an old favorite store of mine that was on State Street in Murray. It was called Jobbers Odd Lot and it was outstanding - if you were willing to wade through disorganized and packed aisles.

If it was Jobbers Odd Lot - sorry, that store was torn down over 10 years ago.

I know NPS carries items that have imperfections and such. They carry a variety of stuff though, not just snack items. Not sure if that is what you are talking about. How long ago do you remember this store from?

When it comes to snack foods being *old*, many grocery stores have a rack somewhere near the back of the store with that kind of stuff.
You'd be surprised what you often *find* there ....

I make my own bread crumbs and other *things* from *old* bread.

About NPS, been there done that, often !
Just make sure the *expiration* date is not too far away or surpassed!
I am also a weekly visitor at the hardware section of NPS (across the road).
Good for office type paper goods.
Once *found* kits for *square foot gardening* stuff for under 5 bucks each !
You can not even buy the wood for those, for that price !

I never buy *frozen stuff* , since I do not know if it was once thawed out and *re-frozen* !
I never buy any canned food that has the slightest dent in it !

Otherwise you have to know what the going price is for each specific item !
Use your smart phone !

I am not a cheapo ! Just being frugal !
