Save-A-Lot, one of the nation’s leading hard-discount, limited assortment grocery chains and a wholly owned subsidiary of SuperValu, announced plans that will allow it to more efficiently bring fresh quality food options to local neighborhoods with the development of a new 140,000-square-foot food distribution center in Aurora, CO, in June 2014.
Save-A-Lot currently services its stores in this market out of the company’s distribution center located in Dallas. The addition of the new facility in Aurora will dramatically reduce transportation expenses, shorten delivery times and better position Save-A-Lot for future growth.
“This project represents a significant investment in Denver and the surrounding markets,” Ritchie Casteel, president and chief executive officer of Save-A-Lot, said in a press release. “We are excited about the opportunity to more efficiently serve our current stores as well as opening up the area for growth possibilities in the future.”
Save-A-Lot currently operates more than 1,300 stores across 39 states. Currently, there are 15 Save-A-Lot stores in the Denver market. The new distribution center will help support the company’s growth plans in Denver and the surrounding states.
