Discount grocery store chain Save A Lot has revealed the opening of a fully remodeled store on 5060 Dorchester Road in North Charleston, S.C. The grand opening was held on Feb. 1. North Charleston shoppers can now experience a lighter, brighter and easier-to-shop footprint that includes updated décor and lighting, fresh interior and exterior paint, and new signage.
During the grand-opening event, store owner and operator Shannon McPherson, joined by the North Charleston Chamber of Commerce and elected city officials, took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by tours of the store. At 11 a.m., the North Charleston Police Department competed against the North Charleston Fire Department in a three-minute shopping spree benefiting their charity of choice. The police department shopped for Second Chance Resource Center Network United Inc., while the fire department shopped for Community Resources Center.
