When you join the Save A Lot grocery store license opportunity, you’ll enjoy the value of a strong brand reputation in the retail industry.
Save A Lot has been in the business since 1977. We’ve learned a lot in that time and put our experience to use in our discount grocery store model. Our licensing opportunity is designed to specialize in value and convenience, and our customers love us.
Discount grocery stores currently only account for 3 percent of the market share in the U.S. This number is expected to grow exponentially amongst the highest growth rates in retail at 7 percent. Between the low market share and growth projection, there’s plenty of room for newcomers to thrive.
Store Brand Reputation
As the nation’s leading independent discount grocery chain, we found that we were able to flourish as an essential business when others took significant hits. Our customers trust us to have USDA-inspected meats, farm-fresh produce, and all the pantry staples they need and depend on, in an organized, small store footprint, for a low price.
Our vision is for Save A Lot to become America’s most-loved discount retailer through our commitment to unmatched Value, Quality, and Community. We stand out in a way that makes our customers’ lives better by offering them the convenience of easy stop-ins to our stores (our small footprint) and finding what they need (limited SKU assortment) for a great low price (savings from in-house distribution get passed down). It’s what makes our customers happy to shop at our stores.
Retail Partner Brand Reputation
We wouldn’t be where we are without exemplary Retail Partners. We invest in our Partners because we know that their success is our success. We’re proud to be there for them every step of the way.
Our model for business success provides our Retail Partners with:
- Real Estate Support. We’re here to help with many of your real estate needs, whether it’s finding a location, negotiating lease terms, or assisting with financial agreements.
- Ongoing Support. We make sure we employ industry best practices to set us apart from the competition, get your store up and running, and achieve your growth goals. These standards include time-tested field operations procedures, distribution support, and marketing support.
- Right Assortment and Dedicated Distribution. Our in-store selection is narrowed down to 3,000 SKUs or less, allowing for greater operational efficiency, higher velocity, and increased buying power. Since our dedicated distribution centers are in-house, we’re able to provide best-in-class shopping for our customers.
