Top Foods in Redmond closing

I heard several weeks ago that the Top Foods in Redmond was closing. Today I was shopping there and noticed some sales related to that store's pending closure on July 31 and wanted to pass along some deals.

I am guessing that some stock will be difficult to move to other locations and that many items are unique to the Redmond location - perhaps lingering from it's Larry's Market days - and aren't carried at other Top Foods stores.

The 'big' sales were 25% off various departments incuding all bulk food items, all health and beauty, many specialty housewares, and many items in the International Food aisle.

The bulk foods are all 25% off. This sale is pretty starightforward.

The health and beauty aids are also all 25% off from regular prices. This is a big department including feminine products, makeup, dental, razors, deodorant, hair dye, vitamins, hair products, medicines, & more. 25% off isn't an incredible sale, but if you have coupons and/or use some high end products these could be some great prices.

I wish I could have lingered in the International Food aisle, but needed to get home. I may go back to see what deals I can get with 25% off and coupons. Most of the sauces & vinegars were reduced in the Asian food section, as well as many types of noodle and the Simply Asia meals. Across the aisle, Gia Russa whole wheat pasta was also all 25% off.

The specialty housewares are many and varied. I'm sure most of these are lingering from Larry's days and while these aren't great deals (due to housewares being sold at a grocery store), they could be good deals at 25% off, especially if you have weddings coming up and want a quality gift. Here's a big list: Kitchen gadgets including range pans, utensils, silicone pot holders, plastic or wooden cutting boards, colanders, mixing bowls, and foil baking pans. Le Creuset Stoneware baking dishes, kettles, honeypot, pitchers, butter dishes. Wine glasses by Spiegelau and Riedel and numerous wine accessories. Pyrex baking dishes, measuring cups, & bowls. Good Cook baking pans including bundt and angel food cake pans. A small selection of very expensive castiron cookware. Pizza stone. Hamilton Beach appliances including food processor, regular and single-serve blenders, toaster, toaster oven, 6 or 12 cup coffee maker, coffee grinder, two sizes of slow cooker, and can opener. Proctor Silex waffle iron. Joyce Chen asian items including 5 piece tea set, sake set, chopstick bowls, bamboo placements, bamboo steamer, wok, stovetop ceramic kettle, and many sushi accessories.

There are also some vases on clearance from the floral department ranging in price from $1.99 to $10. Some of these were very tall and unique and if I was any good at decorating I would have considered purchasing one.

Seasonal items are also being cleared out including Coleman adult sleeping bags for $14.99 and table top gas grills for $17.49.

I'm wondering if the 25% off will be increased as July 31 nears so I'll try to keep an eye out this week and keep you readers posted.
