ST. LOUIS — Save-A-Lot is poised for substantial growth in South Florida when it completes its new distribution center in Pompano Beach. The 250,374 sq. ft. DC is expected to open by February 2013 and will and employ more than 30 employees initially, with the potential for hiring additional employees once the facility is at full capacity, the company said. The project is the result of collaboration with KTR Capital Partners and Butters Construction.
“With this project, we continue to reinvest in the Save-A-Lot distribution model as part of our ongoing commitment to the brand and positioning for overall growth of the hard discount model,” said Santiago Roces, Save-A-Lot president and CEO. “We chose South Florida for our new distribution center because of its excellent business climate, central location and industrious workforce. For the state of Florida and the surrounding region, it means economic growth and jobs. I believe this will be a wonderful partnership for Save-A-Lot, Pompano Beach and the South Florida region.”
Save-A-Lot operates 139 stores in Florida, with South Florida considered a key region for development. According to the company, the new DC will help meet the expanding needs of the community.
Save-A-Lot operates more than 1,300 stores in 39 states, and has identified plans to double the number of stores it operates nationally.
