business news in context, analysis with attitude

Supervalu reportedly is looking to take advantage of the strength of the dollar format by testing a new concept that combines its discount grocery Save-A-Lot format with the Deals$ - Nothing Over a Dollar chain that it acquired last year.

Internally, the company refers to the concept as "Super Save-A-Lot" and "Super Deals," and currently has 47 of them operating in the St. Louis area, with plans to have a total of 75 in different parts of the country by the end of the year.
