44 S. 8th Street (State Highway 57)

Hilbert, WI 54129

The Corner Cupboard is a salvage grocery store like no other discount grocery you've ever seen. They carry groceries, health and beauty aids, cleaning products, paper items and many other things. Their inventory changes all the time. The prices you pay are always much, much lower than you would pay to any other grocery store.

Penzeys Spices

Near the Fox River Mall (strip mall area near TJ Maxx and Gateway Computer, close to TGI Fridays). If you love spices, like I do, you won't find better prices on spices anywhere. Price spices are less than half of what you pay in a grocery store, with a vastly better selection. It's an educational experience just to enter the store.
