The Save A Lot banner is rolling out two more remodeled stores in early September, this time in Lewiston, Maine, and Bridgeport, Conn. (pictured).
Discount grocery chain Save A Lot has completed remodels of stores at 10 East Avenue in Lewiston, Maine, and 540 Pequonnock Street in Bridgeport, Conn. On Sept. 1 in Lewiston and Sept. 2 in Bridgeport, residents of those two New England cities can attend the stores’ grand reopening events. The locations now feature a lighter, brighter and easier-to-shop footprint that includes new décor and lighting, fresh interior and exterior paint, and updated signage.
To mark the grand re-openings, the Lewiston store will give away a free bag of groceries to the first 100 customers on Sept. 1, while from noon till 8 p.m. on Sept. 2, Bridgeport customers can enjoy such offerings as free samples and a bounce house in the parking lot, as well as take part in a raffle starting at 5:30 p.m. for such prizes as microwaves, air fryers and TV’s.
