“Everything you need; skip the deli”

The store itself offers what you need to supply a vacation rental kitchen, or snacks for the road, along with a selection of clothing and souvenir items, and is really the only grocery option between Port Angeles and Hoquiam. Employees are welcoming to visitors and prices are reasonable. However, I cannot recommend the deli. It offers a standard sandwich - choice of bread, meat, cheese, veg, condiments. I ordered a simple cheese-only sandwich for a very particular child (just bread and cheese) - - and was up-charged for this "custom" sandwich! The employees were annoyed at having to make something out of the ordinary and made comments to each other about my odd order. I had planned to order sandwiches, salads and some hot foods for the rest of us but, after the way my initial order was handled, we opted to pick up food elsewhere.

Need a bite to eat or pickup some items for your adventures along the coast? This is the place to go. Spend an afternoon chowing down on some made-to-order sandwiches that really hit the spot.

This is a small town and a small grocery so they don't have a wide selection of things but they have the basics. Produce and fruit looked good. And they had everything I was looking for. And, in addition to food, they have beer, wine, and liquor and some prepared foods. A good place to get supplies for camping or a picnic.

Thriftway Food Store is the main grocery store in Forks. Actually, other than smaller convenience stores it's pretty much the only place to get supplies and groceries. They do carry a wide variety of items, and you should be able to find anything you need here. But, having said that, it's very expensive. As we perused the aisles we couldn't help but notice how much higher the prices were than what we were used to back home in Las Vegas. I talked with one of the locals and asked her where she shopped. She explained that most everyone she knows drives to Port Angeles or Sequim and does their shopping at either Walmart, Costco or Safeway. Even with the drive and gas money it comes out cheaper, she said.
We stocked up on the bulk of our food and supplies while we were in Sequim and I'm glad we did. Saved us some money. We did make three trips to the Thriftway store but only for a few items here and there. The store was always clean, plenty of parking, good customer service. Just keep in mind the prices might be more than what you are used to, and plan accordingly.
