We’re proud to be a member of these communities and look forward to continuing to provide high-quality options for budget-conscious shoppers in Kenton and Fostoria.”
“We’re thrilled to have butchers and meat cutters in our stores to offer customers the freshest meat in town,” continued Adam. “And, with our new ‘Pick 5’ program, shoppers can buy a selection of any five specially marked packages of fresh, smoked or frozen meat for only $19.99.”
The Millers have owned and operated Save-A-Lot stores for more than five years. In addition to these two stores, the family currently owns and operates five other Save-A-Lot stores in Ohio and in total employs more than 130 associates.
