Short Answer: You will generally find raisins near the oatmeal and granola, or you can find them near the peanut butter and even in the produce aisle.
So, when it comes to raisins there is not one particular place to find them in every grocery store.
In most cases they will be near the oatmeal, granola and cereal. After that, check near the peanut butter then check the produce aisle as a last resort.
Once you find the raisins they will usually come in package that has multiple boxes within it, or you can buy them in a bulk bag.
As always, if you have trouble finding raisins in the grocery store, ask an employee, or the store manager for help.
Now, below we will list out where you can find raisins in a few different stores.
