Discount grocery coming to Hinesville

Early next spring, thrifty shoppers will have more options to look forward to when the Save-A-Lot grocery store chain opens a location in Hinesville.
Save-A-Lot differs from typical grocery stores in size and setup, company spokesperson Maureen Shannon said. “We offer a case-ready setup [meaning items are displayed in their shipping cases with the front panels removed for easy viewing] and self-service bagging,” Shannon said.  In addition to traditional bags, shoppers bring their own reusable bags or purchase reusable totes from Save-A-Lot.
The warehouse-style layout helps keep costs low, and the store’s slightly smaller size — 14,000 square feet — makes its location in retail space at 541 Oglethorpe Highway, next to Big Lots, an ideal spot.
Shannon added that scouting for new places has little to do with existing grocery store chains. “When we look for locations, there are a lot of features we look at,” she said. “We look at places where we feel we can bring the best value.”
Save-A-Lot currently operates 1,200 stores nationwide, including stores in Brunswick, Savannah and Statesboro. Shannon said the Hinesville store is expected to open between late February and early March, and anyone who is interested in applying for jobs can apply online at
