MINNEAPOLIS - Supervalu Inc. will celebrate the opening of its 1,000th Save-A-Lot store on Thursday, April 4, in Waterbury, Conn. In addition to the local celebration, Save-A-Lot stores nationwide will celebrate this milestone with a national television and cable advertising campaign as well as a variety of in-store promotions.
"With the opening of our 1,000th store, we mark a milestone as we set the stage for the next phase of growth. Clearly, Save-A-Lot is a border-to-border, coast-to-coast opportunity," says Jeff Noddle, Supervalu's president and CEO. "We are very pleased that our breakthrough retail concept effectively serves our targeted niche of consumers. This customer demographic represents a sizable portion of the U.S. population and provides Save-A-Lot the national landscape to aggressively expand its network."
"Save-A-Lot's down-to-earth, but highly disciplined format has struck a chord with millions of customers who are seeking the greatest value for their grocery dollar, week in and week out," says Bill Moran, president, CEO and founder of Save-A-Lot. "Save-A-Lot is the largest extreme value grocery retailer in the nation. By carrying only the most popular size and variety of each item, we simplify the shopping experience for our customers, respect their time, and help them stretch their financial resources."
With stores in 36 states, Save-A-Lot is supported by 13 distribution centers -- soon to be 14 with the opening of the Wisconsin distribution center later this month.
