1,300 stores and growing.
Save-A-Lot is a leader in the hard discount, carefully selected assortment grocery store industry with over 1,300 locations. In fact, we have had over 35 consecutive years of growth and have plans for new Save-A-Lot locations through license and corporate store development.
Customers enjoy saving up to 40% compared to traditional grocery stores on high quality, exclusive brands and can find national brand products as well as USDA-inspected beef, pork and poultry, farm-fresh fruits and vegetables and non-food items in our stores. In addition, our smaller stores are clean, bright and make the customers’ shopping experience quicker and easier.
Independent retailers choose Save-A-Lot for many of the same reasons our customers do. Efficiencies such as our carefully selected assortment business model and exclusive Save-A-Lot brands help keep costs low and offers customers the savings they have come to expect. Save-A-Lot also utilizes smaller format stores that are bright, clean and user friendly. Their smaller size also equates to lower overhead.
Save-A-Lot is not a typical franchise. In fact, it is not a franchise at all; it is a proven license business model designed with the store owner in mind. Save-A-Lot uses this over a franchising program because franchisors typically charge upfront franchise fees and royalties on a go-forward basis, whereas Save-A-Lot does not.
