Business Plan Objectives to Owning a Retail Grocery Store

Save A Lot features many advantages that are built into our business model. As the nation’s leading independent discount grocery chain, we know a thing or two about owning a retail grocery store and specializing in value and convenience.

We stand out from the competition with unique features, such as award-winning proprietary brands and market-leading low prices that can’t be found elsewhere. Our time-tested model makes it easier than ever to meet and exceed your grocery store business plan objectives.

Choose Save A Lot for a grocery store licensing opportunity designed to save time and money while allowing you to quickly see a strong return on your investment. We’ll help you take charge in a $758bn industry with an efficient and profitable model.

Limited Assortment

Traditional grocery stores carry 15,000 to 60,000 stock-keeping units (SKUs). Part of our mission to save Retail Partners and customers money is having an efficient model, so we offer a reduced SKU assortment of about 3,000 items to simplify operations and shopping experiences.

Award-Winning Private Label Brands

Part of our limited assortment is our award-winning private label brands. Save A Lot offers more than 50 high-quality, low-priced private brands. This provides customers with a better value for their money and Retail Partners better margins than the national brand equivalents.

Low-Cost Service Model

Our limited assortment means Retail Partners can run a highly productive, minimally staffed store. Save A Lot focuses on smaller retail footprints with smart layouts and minimal backroom warehouse space that result in lower rents than conventional grocery stores.

Everyday Low Pricing (EDLP) Strategy

Save A Lot can deliver market-leading everyday low prices over supermarkets thanks to our everyday low pricing (EDLP) strategy. We have a buying power of 1,000 stores, which allows us to offer savings on all of our products.

Next Steps

Save A Lot is a great opportunity, whether you’re new to the business or already run a retail grocery store. By upgrading to our more competitive model, you’ll see increased efficiency and profitability while being able to leverage the high demand for savings and a stronger bottom line.

Aside from “How much can I earn as a Save A Lot owner?,” one of the most frequently asked questions we hear is how to start a grocery store? We’re the experts – we’ve opened hundreds!

Save A Lot will work with you each step of the way. First, we’ll review your financial and background qualifications to ensure you’re well qualified, and you’ll have a chance to review our licensing agreement closely.

After that, our professional real estate team will work with you to find the right location and provide support during buildout. Next, we’ll help you focus on localization by developing a plan for sourcing and other operations. Then, you’ll attend a Discovery Day, where you can meet our leadership team and get to know our company culture. From there, we’ll get to work on transforming your location and getting it ready to open for business.

Partner with Save A Lot, where you can look forward to saving a lot, a lot.
