I first saw a story on Bimbo's "Expendio" Day-Old baked goods (back in MY youth, we called them "Bakery Thrift Shops") on Dolores' AWESOME blog on great deals (heavily in Grecia and San Jose but she's expanding to other areas around Costa Rica now!!!)
So when I was in Grecia I HAD to go and check it out and I've been to Bimbo Expendio a few times and found some GREAT DEALS - ESPECIALLY the Integral Bread for like 900 colones which in the market are like 1,215-c!! I just immediately put it in the freezer (though you KNOW that processed breads seem to be able to stay out WEEKS after the expiration date!)!!
Off to the little room on the side entrance they had some meats and eggs for sale also for:
It looks like there might be other BIMBO EXPENDIO locations around Costa Rica at:
Carretera a San Antonio del Tejar (Detras del Aeropuerto)
Directions: The easiest way for me to describe it is it's on the corner off the main road at Hospital San Francisco.
on the West side of 9th Street somewhere between Avenida 8 and Avenida 4 (????)
Santa Rosa • Santo Domingo
Bagelmen's has 1/2 price bagels from 8-9pm
DISCOUNT BREADS • PANES DE DESCUENTO??
Bakery Thrift Shops are such a flash back of many of our youths!! Do you know of other locations where one on a budget•are living cheaply in Costa Rica - could find these older baked goods, pastries, products - be they day old or end of day/baked earlier in the day?
Please add DETAILS any other places with good deals to "Comments" below!!
