In the latest episode of Arlington Eats, host Andrew Tanielian visits Town Talk Foods, located at 2320 S Collins St., Arlington, Texas 76014. The unique grocery store focuses on selling groceries at extreme discount prices.

According to the company's website, Town Talk was started as a grocery store in Plainfield, New Jersey by two Czechoslovakian immigrants. In 1954, their oldest son, William Dafcik moved to Texas and opened the Town Talk Restaurant on Camp Bowie Blvd in West Fort Worth. In 1973, the restaurant property was sold and Town Talk moved to downtown and began buying and selling groceries from closeouts, insurance claims and overruns.

Arlington native Tom Brown purchased Town Talk Foods in 2013 and is currently the CEO. Brown grew up in Arlington, graduated from Lamar High School and went to Texas A&M. He returned to The American Dream City and raised his family here.

Salvage grocers sell surplus, discontinued or out of season products at deeply discounted prices. Town Talk Foods aims to to provide a fun, interesting and all inclusive “treasure hunt” for all.

In fact, Brown is proud of Arlington's rich cultural diversity and is focused on creating an environment that's welcoming to all cultures, sexual orientations, beliefs, ethnicities and socio-economic levels.

"That's another great thing about Arlington, we have such a diverse population. It's wonderful."
