If you’ve never been to GFS Marketplace, think of it as an Aldi/Sam’s Club hybrid. Stores are small and sell mostly private labeled products, similar to Aldi. Like Sam’s Club, most of the items sold at GFS Marketplace are in bulk – suitable for parties or other large gatherings. In addition to food items, GFS Marketplace also sells plates, cups, silverware and condiments in bulk.
My Visit to GFS Marketplace
I visited the GFS Marketplace located on Miller Parkway this summer to purchase food for a family party. I am not a member of Sam’s Club, so it was nice to be able to buy in bulk without having to pay a membership fee. I bought typical cookout fare – burgers, hot dogs, buns, potato salad and coleslaw. The prices were decent and I paid less than I would have for similar items at Pick ‘n Save or Walmart.
