ST. LOUIS -- November 22, 2005 -- Soon, Las Vegas shoppers will be able to save up to 40 percent on groceries at two new Save-A-Lot Food Stores.
The stores are scheduled to open in early 2006 and will be located at:
703 North Rancho Drive (at West Bonanza) Las Vegas, NV 89106
1110 East Charleston (at S. Maryland Parkway) Las Vegas, NV 89104
"Shoppers will be pleasantly surprised when they first visit the stores and experience Save-A-Lot's - value equation - great food at great prices," said Jaime Folsom, company spokesperson. She added, "Save-A-Lot is a value shopper's utopia. Because of our limited assortment method of retailing and the incredible buying power of 1,250-plus stores, Save-A-Lot Food Stores offer the highest quality groceries - many under our own exclusive brands - at terrific, 40 percent savings."
Save-A-Lot is the nation's fastest growing limited assortment grocery chain in the U.S. with 1,250-plus stores in 39 states. The company has achieved its growth and success by developing a different way of retailing - its stores offer customers the most popular size and variety of the most frequently purchased grocery items. The edited assortment of products, smaller size of the stores and incredible buying power work together to reduce operating expenses. These savings are passed on to the customer through lower prices.
The smaller store size - about 14,000-18,000 square-feet - also makes shopping more convenient. "Our store size allows customers to have a quick and easy shopping experience," Folsom said. "And our limited assortment format means that we've already done some of the shopping for our customers. We know they expect to find great food at great prices."
Save-A-Lot carries both selected national brand items and exclusive label products. To ensure that Save-A-Lot's exclusive label products are as good or better than name brand items, the company has a test kitchen, a full-time economist and rigorous quality assurance procedures. "If a product does not meet Save-A-Lot's standards for top quality, we won't carry it," Folsom said.
The new stores will carry about 1,250 of the most frequently purchased grocery items, including fresh meat, fruits and vegetables, dairy products, canned goods and packaged items, frozen foods and more, plus non-food items like health and beauty care.
