JUNCTION CITY, Ore. -- Hundreds of shoppers showed up for the grand opening of Grocery Outlet Bargain Market Thursday.

Many said the city needed another grocery store to help keep prices down through more competition.

"I've been to Safeway so much that I'm glad to see another store come in the town to lower the prices,” Junction City resident Russell Henderson said. “I'm tired of paying high prices."

Shoppers also said they were excited the store was locally owned.

The owners, Michael Hascher and Ashlie Hascher, live in Junction City and said the small local community the city has to offer made it the perfect place to open the store.

"Just to see everyone's face, to see all the people I've interacted with on Facebook and around town come in and support us, it's just heartwarming,” Michael Hascher said.

He said the store will create 35 jobs in Junction City.
