City Welcomes New Save-A-Lot Store

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - HealthMayor Emanuel joined officials and community members at the grand opening of the new Save-A-Lot grocery store located at 3939 W. Ogden Ave last Friday. The store will bring fresh produce, dairy and meats to an area designated as a food desert.

“It is unacceptable that a half-million Chicagoans do not have access to healthy, fresh foods for their family and I am committed to the elimination of these food deserts in our city,” said Mayor Emanuel. “I would like to thank Save-A-Lot for ensuring that residents of West Lawndale have access to the foods they need to make healthy choices for themselves and their families.”

In June, the City convened six grocery chain CEOs and challenged them to commit to building new stores in food deserts. All responded with plans in late October and recently Save-A-Lot is cutting the ribbon on the first store since those commitments were announced. “Save-A-Lot is committed to serving the Chicago community and providing access to fresh quality produce, meat and groceries at great prices,” says Ron Munson, Regional Director Of Save-A-Lot’s Chicago Operations. “We are proud to be a member of this community and look forward to continually providing budget-conscious, high-quality options to the value-seeking shoppers in Chicago.”
