Have you noticed that grocery prices have gone up in Northern Colorado? Prices have risen so drastically in 2023 and 2024 that some people are calling it a grocery battlefield.


I dread going to the grocery store. I love cooking and planning out my household meals, but I hate seeing the price when I check out. It might sound silly, but it can be anxiety-inducing considering how much food prices have been going up in Northern Colorado.

Food Waste: A Problem in Colorado


It seems odd that food prices are going up so much since we have such a problem with food waste.

According to Recycle Track Systems, 30% of food in American grocery stores is thrown away. 2.5 billion tons of food is wasted across the globe annually. One Northern Colorado grocery store is trying to change that while saving you money in the process.

I am embarrassed to admit that I am just now learning about Esh's Grocery Market in Loveland. But I asked around and a lot of people aren't aware of it either. That made me feel better.

Esh's calls themselves a discount liquidation grocery store. They have been in Northern Colorado for over 20 years.

If you are wondering what a discount liquidation store is here is the definition.

Liquidation stores are unique retail establishments specializing in selling open-box items, returns, display models, and discontinued products. The items in a liquidation store are often, if not always, deeply discounted.

Prices are low due to major retailers being overstocked. Esh's looks for bargains and supplies their stores with what they can get their hands on. You might think to yourself that the food is either expired or bad. That's not the case. Here is what Esh's says.

We sort all the food in our sorting warehouse so they check expiration dates on foods that are not to be sold after expired. We meet all health and environment regulations and have regular Health Inspections done to ensure the quality of our products.
