Hard Discount Grocery Business Opportunity

We are the nation’s leading hard discount grocery chain designed for independent retail operators. Our business model is focused on empowering our independent retail partners with the tools to succeed, which includes more effective store layouts, exclusive private label products, buying power cost savings and low operating overhead.

Customers enjoy high-quality, exclusive brands and can find national brand products as well as USDA-inspected beef, pork and poultry, farm-fresh fruits and vegetables and non-food items in our stores. In addition, our smaller stores are clean, bright and make the customers’ shopping experience quicker and easier.

Our independent retail partners choose Save A Lot for many of the same reasons our customers do. Efficiencies such as our carefully selected assortment and exclusive Save A Lot brands help keep costs low and offers customers the savings they have come to expect. 
Save A Lot also utilizes smaller format stores that are bright, clean and user friendly. Their smaller size also equates to lower overhead.

Save A Lot is a proven licensed business model designed with the store owner in mind. And Save A Lot does NOT charge upfront franchise fees or royalties.
