American Discount Foods was founded in January of 1998.  In the early days we were known as Harvest Market and later Harvest Foods, but because of other companies with similar names and some confusion about being a natural foods store we decided on American Discount Foods. We felt this name fit our patriotic leanings and tells the public who we are and what we do. 

We started our operations near the corner of Main and Extension in Mesa in a small space that was home to several other business.  After about a year and a half we moved to a space 3 to 4 times the size in a warehouse building about a ½ mile to the south, still on Extension road.  We were there for 3 years when the opportunity to take over the building just south of us opened up.  The new space was over three times the size and rent per square foot was lower.  We felt we needed to take advantage of it.  After a year of renovating the space which had previously been the Rosarita Mexican Food plant, we moved in October of 2002.  Our store now includes an entire room of frozen and dairy items, a large produce room and we are air conditioned throughout our store.  

In 2007 we added an additional 16,000 square feet to bring our store to a total of over 40,000 square feet.  By doing this it has enabled us to have separate areas for the wide varieties of items we get in.  Our success is and has always been due to the Lord Almighty & to Him be the Glory.  We thank our wonderful customers and employees for making us a unique & fun place to shop, work and save. 

Our philosophy is to provide quality products at the best possible prices and pay our staff well.  We want to continue to do this for as long as the Lord intends.  Our company verse is Romans 10:9, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord & believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved.” 

If you desire to know more about us or about what we believe, we would be happy to talk to you anytime.  We love the Lord, our families and our proud of this great country.   Thank you for helping keep the family owned business alive.

How do we sell so cheap?

We get our food from a wide variety of sources due to closeouts, short codes, discontinued and damaged case products.  If you have shopped here for any period of time you know that most of our products are, “here today & gone tomorrow”, so we always urge our customers to stock up if they find something they like.  At American Discount Foods, you never know what you’ll find; we bring out the bargain hunter in everyone.   You will find some products around the store that are close to or even past its best by date.  This does not mean the product is bad and in almost every case you will have a hard time differentiating between the product before and after the best by date.  Here is a link to the USDA’s site and what they have to say about product dating.  http://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/food-safety-education/get-answers/food-safety-fact-sheets/food-labeling/food-product-dating/food-product-dating

 In our bargain section you will find items with red tags, they are past date and are drastically reduced from our already incredibly low prices.  We also test out of code items to ensure quality.  As with everything we sell, there is always a money back guarantee.  If you have a problem with any of our products, just bring back the product with your receipt for a full refund.  Thanks again for your continued patronage and helping keep the family owned store alive.
