SaveALotThe new Save-A-Lot supermarket at South Haven Square could be open for business by late March.

That's according to Schererville-based Latitude Commercial, which represented the building owner in the lease transaction, which was announced in November.

Save-A-Lot, a Missouri-based discount supermarket chain, will occupy about 18,500 square feet of the former Al’s Supermarket at the South Haven shopping center at 392 U.S.-6.

Independent grocery chain Al’s Supermarket, which has two locations in Michigan City and another in La Porte, closed its South Haven store in April 2017.

Latitute Commercial said renovations at the site were well underway and barring any issues, the store should be open by late March.

Save-a-Lot has more than 1,200 stores across 36 states.

Information on Save-A-Lot’s website notes its stores carry roughly 1,800 different products, national brands and its own label items. The company says it sells what its customers buy most, which helps reduce the need for a large space and eliminates slow-moving products from its distribution.

The company, which is part of the portfolio of companies of Canadian-based private equity firm Onex Corp., said smaller stores also translates to lower operating expenses.
