Payless Foods Montebello: Grand Opening! Free Giveaways, Great Bargains!

Payless Foods, Store #16
2809 Via Campo, Montebello 90640

Payless Foods Market has opened a new store in Montebello! The balloons on Via Campo caught my eye and I stopped in for a look. It's near the corner of Garfield on Via Campo next to the Miraculous Medal Church. The store is now open but the Grand Opening celebration is scheduled for Thursday, December 2.

I walked down a hallway that had a country feel to it to find a store a little bigger than the Super A market. The aisle signs are in the shape of barns and produce and other items are in what the store wants you to think are wooden crates and barrel type things. The store looks like a cross between Smart & Final, with the warehouse type shelving and Super A, for it's touch of Hispanic items throughout. The bagger gave my daughter a balloon and all the employees looked really happy. I asked about coupons and they don't double, they are accepted at face value.

The store has a large produce section. There is a bakery with cakes and fresh sweet bread. A large meat department has fresh cuts of meat and fully cooked food available for purchase. There are two entrances, the main entrance on the south side and a smaller one on the west side.

The manager gave me a copy of the advertisement that is due out in Wednesday's mail. The Grand Opening Event will have lots to offer. There will be special pricing such as bananas 4lbs for $1 and 3-12 packs of soda for $7. There will be giveaways on the hour from 8am-9pm of flowers and bags of groceries. Free coffee, ice cream sundaes, and balloons to shoppers. Samples from vendors and the meat department. Two reusable grocery bags will be given away to each customer at the check stand.


  1. Wow! That store looks amazing! I just might have to venture over from West Covina to check it out.

  2. Is this store closed now? The number has been disconnected.
