Save-A-Lot, a St. Louis, Mo.-based subsidiary of SUPERVALU, developed a new 140,000-square-foot food distribution center in Aurora, Colo. Set to open in June 2014, the new facility 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,” says Ritchie Casteel, president and CEO. “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. 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.
