United Grocery Outlet is a highly reputable closeout grocery merchant buying and selling almost anything found in a supermarket. We began in 1974 in the small Tennessee town of Etowah, where we were known as the Bargain Barn.

The original concept for our business was that customers “Eat Better For Less.” Beginning with $1,000 of working capital and using the corner of an antique store as the storefront, founder Michael Tullock and his parents started purchasing closeouts, seconds, and irregulars from two manufacturers.

Within a few weeks, the Tullock’s grocery business had driven out the antiques, but no one dreamed it would grow into what is today! United Grocery Outlet is a 39-store chain, with over 900 employees working in six states.

The company’s headquarters and distribution center are located in Athens, Tennessee. Join Us in Our Mission to Serve our Customers, our Associates, and our Suppliers.
