Grocery Outlet LOGOGrocery Outlet is a proposed 18,000 square-foot discount grocery store that is slated to be constructed on the east side of Big Bear Boulevard, between Sandalwood Drive and Starvation Flats Road (42175 Big Bear Boulevard).  The project is proposed on three adjoining lots, all zoned Commerical General (C-2) and designated as Commercial General (GC) within the General Plan.

On April 21, 2021, Planning Commission reviewed the project at their regular meeting and voted 4-1 for approval of Plot Plan Review 2020-078. Two (2) appeals were filed: one from Finney Arnold LLP on behalf of Big Bear Lake Together, and another one was filed by Patrice  Duncan, Sugarloaf Property Owners Association.

On June 7, 2021, City Council held a public hearing to consider the two appeals and other public testimony. Council decided to continue their deliberations at the June 21 City Council meeting, then again to the July 19 City Council meeting and the August 2 City Council meeting.
