Why Invest in a Wholesale Grocery Store with Save A Lot?
There has never been a better time to invest in a strong grocery store business model like the licensing opportunity offered by Save a Lot.
The grocery store industry has been growing for years and is often valued for its recession resistance – with a $811 billion revenue it is one of the few that didn’t take a significant hit during the pandemic. The independent grocery segment has continued to gain market share, currently accounting for 33% of total US grocery sales. Independent grocers contribute more than $255 billion to the economy, or 1.2% of the US GDP. What’s more, the discount grocery store model, in particular, is growing exponentially and is positioned among the highest sales growth rates in retail at about 10% versus the total grocery growth of 8.2%. The sales growth at discount grocers is expected to continue outpacing overall grocery sales growth in the years ahead.
As discount grocers continue to see sales growth, there’s never been a better time to consider opening a wholesale grocery store with Save A Lot, and our team can help you get started.
