ROCHESTER, Minnesota – With the country still struggling with inflation, a Med City family comes to the rescue with a new discount store.
“During the pandemic, everything was closed and we wanted something to fill our time,” says Jason Grabow.
Grabow and his wife Katie own the Med City Discount outlet. One day, Katie found some toys in a Facebook auction group. They bought them and found out where the owner was from. The couple learned that the man they bought the toys from was buying overstock pallets, motivating them to do the same.
The couple stored the goods in their garage. But the garage wasn’t big enough for everything.
“We need something to do with all the extra stuff that we don’t want, so we started selling it and over the last eleven months it’s just grown and grown and grown. So we’ve decided to open a storefront,” says John. Grabow.
A few months later, the couple’s idea became a reality. They now have their own store off 7th Street NW where they help others.
The Grabow store offers toys, clothing and personal care products. The couple are looking forward to what their discount store will bring to The Med City.
If you couldn’t make it to the soft opening today, Med City Discount Outlet will have a grand opening on Tuesday. It will be open six days a week, Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
