ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Save-A-Lot announced that it will break ground for a new 325,000-sq.-ft. food distribution center in Lexington, N.C.
The state-of-the-art center, located in Lexington’s Business Center, is expected to open in December and initially will employ more than 40 employees with the potential for hiring additional employees once the facility is at full capacity. The project is the result of collaboration with the state of North Carolina and its One North Carolina Fund, the North Carolina Department of Commerce, Davidson County and the City of Lexington.
“With this project, Save-A-Lot plans on investing more than $24 million in Lexington over the next three years,” said Bill Shaner, Save-A-Lot president and CEO. “We chose Lexington for our new distribution center because of its excellent business climate, central location and industrious work force. For the state of North Carolina and the surrounding region, it means economic growth and jobs. I believe this will be a wonderful partnership for Save-A-Lot, Lexington and the region.”
According to the company, the new center will help Save-A-Lot supply its growing network of grocery stores. In addition, the new state-of-the-art food distribution center will feature the latest in green technologies for the most efficient use of energy, including lights that only operate when a person is present and an HVAC system with smart thermostats.
