A long anticipated North Salina grocery store will open its doors on Wednesday.
A Save a Lot grocery store is ready to open in the location that formerly housed a Dillons grocery store at 511 East Iron Avenue.
A grand opening celebration is planned Wednesday morning that includes special deals, a radio station remote broadcast, and a chamber of commerce ribbon cutting.
Officials tell KSAL News a discount grocery store will work well in this location. Save a Lot has more than 1,300 stores nationwide. According to the company, they deliver savings on discount groceries, up to 40% compared to conventional grocery stores.
Seven different grocery chains had looked at the market location in Salina
The building on Iron Avenue had been vacant since late 2012, when Dillons closed the store as they opened a new location on East Cloud Street.
