Own a Save-A-Lot, the nation's leading discount grocery store

Save-A-Lot is the nation's leading hard discount grocery chain with over 1,300 stores across the U.S. and Caribbean. Approximately 70% of these locations are owned and operated by individuals or corporate entities under our licensed retailer program.

Our business model is designed to help retailers succeed and compete effectively in the grocery industry. We combine the expertise of the nation's second largest grocery chain under a single banner with the unique talents of licensed operators. Save-A-Lot is focused on driving down costs to give our independently owned retailers a competitive edge.

  • Hard Discount: We carry the food items shoppers buy most often. By offering a carefully selected assortment of approximately 3,000 grocery items, we create unparalleled efficiencies throughout the supply chain, enabling our retailers to offer customers the lowest prices possible.


  • Save-A-Lot Exclusive Brands: Over 60% of our store is devoted to our own exclusive high quality brands. These trademarked brands offer substantial savings because they don't carry the costly advertising expenses built into national brands.


Save-A-Lots are not franchised. Our retailers operate under license agreements and adhere to company operating standards, building design, equipment criteria and merchandising concepts. This helps ensure consistency and success across our network of licensed and corporate stores. We provide ongoing services such as training, retail accounting, advertising and operations consultation. Our goal is to help you succeed.

While we estimate the initial investment required for opening a Save-A-Lot to be between $600,000 - $1,400,000 (covering leasehold improvements, fixtures and equipment, inventory, security deposit and initial working capital), each situation is unique and investment requirements and risk factors must be evaluated by the prospective licensee for a given location and trade area. Funds for those opening their first store typically come from owner equity and/or third party loans. Save-A-Lot is now offering a Licensed Store Incentive Program, with significant capital options - a minimum of $200,000 - available to qualified candidates for each new store developed.
