When you choose to make an investment in a grocery store business, it’s important to find a model that will deliver solid returns. The Save A Lot grocery store model is designed to increase your bottom line by maximizing efficiency at every opportunity. We’ve made the experiences of managing and shopping in our stores as simple as possible, making us a favorite among licensees and customers alike. Here, learn about a few of the ways we’ve managed to optimize our business model.
Limited SKU System
Bigger isn’t always better! At Save A Lot, we stock fewer SKUs (stock-keeping units) in our stores. Having a curated assortment allows us to keep our prices lower than our competitors’ while also maintaining a smaller footprint– around 15,000 square feet – that leads to a convenient shopping experience. We even help each licensee to build out their store, making it as easy as possible for customers to navigate.
We offer a solid selection that covers 90% of shopping needs, including grocery items, frozen items, produce, dairy, household supplies, and so forth. High-quality, private label brands account for the majority of our offerings. This grocery store model makes Save A Lot the perfect destination for large weekly shopping trips and quick pickups alike.
In-House Supply Chain
Save A Lot controls much of our own distribution, which is another way we’re able to keep costs down. Our 13 dedicated warehouses stock all Save A Lot products and ship directly to each store – in cutting out the middlemen, it’s a more efficient way for retail partners to place orders.
We even package and ship merchandise with convenience in mind, making sure products are visible and packaging can be broken down easily. This strategy helps employees to get items onto the shelves faster and with less hassle.
Convenience and Savings Come First
We’re always looking for ways to keep our stores running better to make things easier for customers. They choose Save A Lot over other grocery stores time and time again because they can count on low prices and convenience. They love that our small stores allow them to find what they need quickly and that we offer high-quality products with prices far lower than what they see elsewhere.
These are just a few of the ways our grocery store model can achieve the convenience and savings customers want. We’re always conducting research and development to ensure that we’re tapping into the latest technology and trends to get the best results for customers and licensees alike.
As a retail partner, you can count on us to keep our grocery store model up to date so you can look forward to seeing the strongest possible returns on your investment.
