Save-A-Lot grocery store held its grand opening Wednesday, June 27

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP- The budget grocery store Save-A-Lot is holding its grand opening Thursday, June 28 in the Cardiff Plaza. The area''s second store - one opened in Atlantic City earlier this year- held a soft opening last Friday and has been open for business since. 

 Christi Garwood, a wife and mother of three from Egg Harbor Township, visited the store on Tuesday and said she found the savings great enough to return again.

“What a great addition to our township,” Garwood said. “For a 5-person household living on a tradesman income, saving money is an everyday chore. Save-A-Lot makes it a whole lot easier. I walked in there and purchased 5 items, including a gallon of milk and a loaf of bread, and I only spent $10.75. I didn't have my coupons with me but when I came home and checked my usual store's prices, I would have spent $15.25 - I am very pleased.”

She said the atmosphere of the store is pleasant.
“Save-A-Lot is a clean, well-organized store. It has fresh produce which is great as well. It's not a store for specialty items but it's certainly the place I will go for my family's weekly staples.”

There are nearly 1,300 Save-a-Lot stores nationwide in urban, suburban and rural areas, according to the company's website. "As one of the nation's leading extreme value, carefully selected assortment grocery chains, we deliver our customers terrific savings on discount groceries, up to 40% compared to conventional grocery store," the site states.

Shoppers will find aisles of low-priced items, some name brands and some generic products. In order to keep costs low, shoppers must bring their own bags or purchase bags. Small plastic bags are sold at registers for 3-cents each, larger bags for 10-cents each and reusable bags for $1 each. Shopping carts are available for a 25-cent rental charge out front of the store, and all customers must bag their own products at a large counter just past the registers. 

Save-A-Lot is a wholly owned subsidiary of SUPERVALU INC., a Fortune 100 company and one of the largest companies in the United States grocery marketplace, with its first store opening in 1977.
