Grocery Outlet Bargain Market

O’Brien Construction Co. of Kennewick was the general contractor of an 18,000-square-foot Grocery Outlet Bargain Market in Richland, WA. The Market opened on March 24 at Vintner Square, and employs 30.

The $1.65 million store is part of a national chain of 300 “extreme discount” grocery stores operated by Emeryville, California-based Grocery Outlet. The company recently went public, raising about $400 million to fuel expansion.

The newest Tri-City Grocery Outlet is owned by independent operators Nikki and Mike Sims and is at the west end of Vintner Square, the Target-anchored shopping center owned by Browman Development.

Its spot next to Party City was the last major development site at Vintner Square.
