There’s a (relatively) new bakery outlet in town: the Wonder Bread outlet on Galley Rd, between Powers and Murray. I’m having a hard time pulling up an address that I’m confident is the correct one, but I do know that it was on Galley between Powers and Murry on the north side of the road – maybe just east of the Ent Credit Union?
They’ve only been open for a few months and were hesitant to talk to me since they’re not allowed to advertise at all (I guess?) but I told them I’d be telling you about it anyway! :)
It was a small store with, of course, only the Wonder Hostess brands, which include Wonder, Hostess, Nature’s Pride, and Mrs Cubbison’s. There’s a full list of their brands here, but I don’t believe we have all of those in our area.
I asked them a bit about where and how they get there bread and found out most of it is bread that’s been stocked at convience stores and is about to expire, so their stockers remove those breads and take them to the outlet. The closest Wonder Bakery is in Denver, I believe, so the bread is baked up there, trucked down here and distributed, and then taken to the outlet if it doesn’t sell in time.
Overall, I didn’t think they had a lot of great deals. I did pick up some Nature’s Pride 100% Whole Wheat loaves for 79¢ each that had a best-buy date of the next day, which is a smokin’ deal, but I didn’t see anything else that was even remotely marked down like that. As with all bread outlets, it varies by the day, so sometimes they may have lots of amazing deals and other times it may be the stuff that’s basically full-price.
As far as what they shared with me, they don’t have certain specials on certain days or a discount card or anything like the Orowheat Outlet on North Academy (review of that one coming soon, I promise!).
So, if it’s on your normal route, it might be worth a stop! If you typically freeze bread anyway, if you can stock up when the loaves hit 79¢ or whatever it’s totally worth it!
Have you been to the Wonder Hostess Bakery Outlet? From what I saw and from what you guys have told me about the Orowheat Outlet, it seems like the Orowheat store is probably more worth a stop, but I’ve only been in the Wonder outlet once.
