As the nation’s leading independent discount grocery chain, Save A Lot features a unique grocery store licensing opportunity. Grocery stores showed strong recession resistance over other forms of retail stores during the pandemic, fueling significant growth and a sales drive that’s predicted to last for years to come.
The grocery store industry is a growing, booming industry. In particular, the discount grocery store model has seen exponential growth and is positioned for some of the highest growth rates in retail. With only a three percent market share, there’s plenty of room for newcomers to flourish.
When you become a Retail Partner with Save A Lot, you’ll see how our time-tested model is proven to help you build a thriving business while being efficient and effective. Unlike other grocery store franchises, we utilize a licensing model that stands out from the competition by specializing in value and convenience, so you can get your store operating quickly and see a strong return on your investment.
