For decades, grocery stores have continued to be a staple for life. Even with an industry that’s constantly evolving and customers’ buying habits changing, a grocery store investment is still among the best for an entrepreneur to take advantage of. Food stores, after all, are resilient and adaptable because the essential demand for groceries is unwavering.
Although there may be a lot of advantages to owning a grocery store, the challenges are just as significant, and they can make or break your business. Save A Lot has an independent grocery wholesale licensing opportunity to help grocery store owners like you run successful businesses with the help, resources, and guidance of a well-established company. Read more about why converting your store to a Save A Lot is a great investment.
Our Well-Established Grocery Wholesale Licensing Business Model
When you convert your grocery store to a Save A Lot, you’re choosing to upgrade to a tried-and-tested business model that customers have loved and preferred for decades. Our grocery wholesale licensing opportunity allows our Retail Partners to supply high-quality products at a low cost and at conveniently located stores.
As a business in operation for over 45 years, we understand the risks and challenges associated with running your own business; that’s why choosing to become a Retail Partner with us, we can help you run a successful grocery store that will bring value to your community while helping you navigate the grocery industry with as fewer risks as possible.
We’ll Help You Save Money
Our ultra-efficient, low-cost service model allows our Retail Partners to run highly productive and minimally staffed stores. By keeping the overhead costs low and occupying smaller footprint stores, you’ll be able to leverage the high demand for savings, and our mass buying power will help you deliver market-leading everyday low prices. We also operate 13 dedicated distribution centers that keep Retail Partners’ stores stocked, allowing for easier operations and increased buying power.
Our Focus on Private Labels and Limited Assortment
Our focus on high-quality, affordable, award-winning private label brands enables our Retail Partners to see better margins than the national brand equivalents. Compared to traditional retail grocery stores offering 15,000 – 16,000 stock-keeping units (SKUs), converting to a Save A Lot store means you’ll have a reduced SKU assortment of 3,000 items.
By offering fewer products, you’ll simplify your operations while providing an efficient and more convenient shopping experience your customers will be happy to pay for. A seamless shopping experience will enable them to shop for high-quality, ready-to-eat meals, great packaged foods, and fresh meat and produce options much more quickly.
Our Grocery Stores Offer an Opportunity to Expand Your Portfolio
There’s no doubt that Save A Lot’s grocery store investment provides many benefits for owners and customers alike. As a company, we care about our Retail Partners and their success; we provide them with the necessary training, support, and resources needed to grow their business.
By upgrading your store to a Save A Lot, you can expect our assistance in helping you grow beyond one territory and build a thriving business. Most of our Retail Partners make further investments into multiple units, increasing their bottom line and ROI. By investing in multi-unit ownership, you’ll get many more valuable benefits, including consolidated marketing expenses, exclusive discounts from Save A Lot, and the opportunity to develop a new market and attract more customers.
