Grocery Outlet Bargain Market will open 14 stores in the greater Los Angeles area beginning this December and continuing into 2016, creating about 500 jobs, the company announced Tuesday.

Stores — locations include Costa Mesa, Westminster, La Habra, Long Beach, La Puente, Azusa, Compton, Upland and Ontario — will be independently owned and operated, according to the company.

Co-CEO Eric Lindberg said Grocery Outlet offers name brands such as Kraft, Kellogg’s,  Tyson and Amy’s Kitchen at prices up to 60 percent off traditional supermarkets by negotiating directly with manufacturers to buy overstock and surplus products at deep discounts.

Co-CEO MacGregor Read said his grandfather started the Emeryville-based business nearly 70 years ago. Grocery Outlet has more than 227 locations in California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Washington.

“As a family-run business, we’re proud to say our values are reflected in each of our stores,” he said. “From supporting little league teams to donating food to those in need, our local owners share our commitment to making a lasting impact.”
