St. Louis-based Save-A-Lot has opened two new stores down South this month.
The Supervalu-owned hard discount chain launched its newest Georgia store this week at 1901 Metropolitan Parkway SW in Atlanta, while its new market at 2236 Martin Luther King Blvd. in Paris, Ky., opened its doors last week.
While the financially struggling Supervalu aims to reduce capital expenditures in fiscal 2013, it plans to continue store investments, including 40 remodels and the addition of 40 Save-A-Lot locations in fiscal year 2013.
The new stores’ respective regional directors welcomed shoppers to the new locations.
“Save-A-Lot is committed to offering fresh produce, dairy and USDA-inspected meat, as well as other essential grocery and household items to shoppers at an affordable price – typically up to 40 percent less than traditional grocery stores,” said Myron Ball, Save-A-Lot regional director over the Atlanta store.
Each Save-A-Lot store carries up to 1,500 of the most popular, in-demand everyday grocery essentials under a wide range of high-quality brands, including Save-A-Lot Today, Coburn Farms and Tipton Grove, produced exclusively for Save-A-Lot.
Save-A-Lot, a wholly owned subsidiary of Minneapolis-based Supervalu Inc., operates more than 1,300 stores in 39 states from Maine to California.
