About Save A Lot

With approximately 1,300 stores scattered across 36 states, Save A Lot is a discount supermarket chain out of St. Ann, Missouri. In 1977, Bill Moran wanted to create a store that would serve as an alternative to traditional large supermarkets. Moran ran the chain, seeing an increase to over 1,000 stores under his leadership, until 2006. The store is based on having a licensee relationship that allows Save A Lot to act as a wholesaler to the independent store owners, allowing it to be an effective strategy setting them apart from traditional large chain stores.

Save A Lot prides itself on providing high-quality products at low prices at smaller stores that have wider aisles so that customers can get in, get their groceries, and get out quicker. Keeping stores small helps to reduce operating costs, and that's a savings they pass along. They also offer a 100% money-back guarantee to their customers, providing either a refund or replacement of any product that customers aren't happy with when it comes to quality or freshness. This guarantee lends well to their excellent customer service, where the customer comes first, and their happiness is of utmost importance.

Why should you shop at Save A Lot?

Along with the excellent customer service and 100% money-back guarantee, Save A Lot provides a wide selection of all the brands you know and love.

Save A Lot has paired up with Instacart to create the ultimate shopping experience.
