Highly Efficient Stores
Our unique, ultraefficient strategic layout allows our Retail Partners to run a highly productive store in a smaller retail footprint. We’re able to do this with a minimally staffed shop floor, limited assortment, and minimal backroom warehouse space. This efficient layout helps keep rent and overhead costs lower compared to larger conventional grocery stores and has a maximum impact on your bottom line.
Converting to Save A Lot could be your opportunity to upgrade to a more competitive model. We can help your existing stores increase efficiency and profitability by leveraging the high demand for savings with our limited use of SKUs and deep discount concept. When you become a Save A Lot Retail Partner, we’ll provide you with virtually everything you need to revamp your locations for a stronger bottom line.
