Dupont is one of the safest and vibrant communities in the Puget Sound. It is conveniently located next to Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM). With all the great things about the city, there is one interesting fact, there is no large grocery store.
First, there is a grocery store known as the Dupont General Store located on Wilmington Drive, the same building as America's Credit Union holds. You can find many of the common staples that you may want. There is a "staffed commercial kitchen making handmade, homemade eats" along with some great soups served daily that will amaze your taste buds. We highly suggest that you stop in. We have recently heard that it may be sold but hopefully a new owner will take over and continue serving the city. Click here for more and a map.
If you are looking for the big grocery shopping stores, you have two choices, North or South. If you are military, you have three choices with the Commissary available to you nearby.
If you would like to go South and generally avoid some of the traffic that develops around JBLM and Tacoma on I5, Lacey is a quick drive to the South generally around 10 minutes off of Exit 111. Safeway
are easy to get to. Winco is also nearby
for some of the staples that you need at better prices.
