The primary benefits of buying day old-bread, whether from outlets or bakeries, are a lower purchase price and a reduction of food waste. In addition to outlet stores and bakeries, some restaurants, such as sandwich shops, sell day-old bread at a inexpensive cost.
Many outlet stores and bakeries sell day-old bread for 50 percent or more off the original price. In addition to bread, many locations also sell pastries and other day-old baked goods at a discount.
Each year in the United States tens of millions of pounds of food end up in landfills. Purchasing day-old bread and other baked goods helps prevent the old bread from heading to the garbage.
