business news in context, analysis with attitude

The St. Louis Business Journal reports that Supervalu-owned Save-A-Lot will open three stores in New Orleans this week, which the company said would offer “extreme value” groceries to a city still recovering from the effects of Hurricane Katrina.

“Save-A-Lot has always looked for growth opportunities in underserved communities, opening stores where other chains won’t,” the supermarket chain said in announcing the most recent store openings. “To that end, the company has identified three additional target areas in New Orleans and a number of others within 100 miles of the city.”
