The new Save-A-Lot store in Durham is opening on Thursday, September 27. The store opens at 8:00 AM with a ribbon-cutting at 2:00 pm. At this time, there are no in-store specials planned for the event, but the Communications Manager did mention that there may be some store samples.

Coupon policy: Save-A-Lot does accept coupons for the national brands that they carry. They do not double coupons. Keep in mind that 80% of their products are private label brands and there are no manufacturer coupons available for those products.
History: In business since 1977, there are now over 1300 store nationwide. The closest store (other than the one in Durham) is in Dunn. According to Chon Tomlin, External Communications Manager, Save-A-Lot tries to offer all the basics for families with not a lot of extras. They have a smaller footprint including bringing in fresh baked goods instead of baking them in-store.
Location: The store address is: 812 Liberty Street, Durham, NC 27701
Job Openings: According to their website, they are still hiring store clerks, a perishable clerk and a meat cutter. Click HERE for more details.
