Save thousands on groceries without a card or an app

Food finds including produce at the 99 Cents store

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) - Coupons, app, reward cards, who can keep up with them all? There's a simpler way to save money on groceries and it's the last place some shoppers think of going. It's the 99 Cents Only Store and some Las Vegas residents say they're saving big money there.

Debbi Bahr has been shopping at the 99 Cents Only Store on Fort Apache and Tropicana for 4 years. "They have things that are seasonal, and I love the produce. That's my favorite," Debbi told us. Along with finding quality products, Debbi says it's the prices that keep her coming back.

Store manager Shaista Rounaque confirmed that even before the store opens, people are lining up outside the door. "99.9 percent go straight to produce and deli. We have milk, eggs, you name it. We have everything."

Debbi says she's saving big bucks. Check out these price comparisons.
