Save A Lot closing in SSM

From its start in 1977, Save A Lot contended with grocery competitors by promising low-priced, high-quality food. The value food company was the “fastest-growing retail chain behind Walmart” by 2004 with over 1,000 stores across the country, primarily in low-income areas. Today, consumers nationwide rely on Save A Lot to stock their homes with affordable, fresh staples.

But shoppers will soon see a shake-up. The mission-driven grocery giant announced its conversion to a wholesale business model in December 2020 after a tumultuous year, according to Supermarket News. Stores have been shut down permanently since before the pandemic, and more followed in 2020, 2021 and now early 2022.

The Save A Lot store in Sault Ste Marie will be closing its doors for good on January 16th

    The SAVALOT in McAlester OK closed recently. I really miss it along with several friends. I have no place to get my drinking water. Either the price is too high or it has sodium in it. Evidently after checking the stores in Muskogee and other surrounding towns closed as well.
