The poster above pretty much explains the store. It is the only grocery store on the south part of Roseburg though, catering to homeless, and low income shoppers lacking vehicles. For about the same prices, you can go and find much better groceries with brand names and about the same prices. The Outlet has really pathetic produce. I once bought some potatoes there. Microwaving them, there was little but the peel left as they were so small. The Outlet sells mostly left over canned foods rejected by other stores as well as products meant for overseas sales. Often, the labels indicate the product recommended used date has passed.
I should add, that due to the narrow aisles, it is difficult to push a cart past people gabbing on their cell phones.
About the only thing I disagree on is the store staff. While I do not consider them all that friendly, they are not rude and are helpful. But friendly store staffs in Roseburg are a thing of the past. It was once a very friendly community, but hasn't been so in about 12 years.Population has decreased from nearly 24,000 in 2000 to just a bit over 20,000 in 2010 and declining more since that Census. So the entire population here is demoralized with some of the lowest incomes in the state, high housing costs and no education or cultural availability.
Personally, I have quit shopping in Roseburg as well as Douglas County. I found it advantageous to drive to Eugene once a month to shop for groceries and other things. I enjoy a better selection, local produce and savings are between 10 and 20%. So The 5 gallons of gas pays for itself. I even put a small freezer in the trunk of my car to keep things like ice cream frozen during the trip home.
What caused me to begin going to Eugene to shop? A $10 parking ticket issued by Diamond Parking Service, a Gestapo contractor hired by the City of Roseburg. And thanks to that $10 ticket. I expect to save between $1500 and $2200 shopping in Eugene this year. So, thanks City of Roseburg. You set me on track by letting me know how much you DON'T appreciate my business here. Always look on the bright side of life, I always say.

the prices here may be good but the food isn't worth the small price you will pay. The store is dirty and very poorly stocked, the staff is very grumpy to the customers and to each other, and it smells bad. The brands of food are those that I have never heard of and the contents arer stail and old tasting.
