As a licensee, Save-A-Lot offers an array of training programs that will familiarize you with the daily operations of a Save-A-Lot food store. We offer several different programs to assist, including:
Licensed Retailer Training Program
If this is your first retail operation, Save-A-Lot wants to prepare you for success with training and practice designed to help you get up and running quickly and effectively. The basis of a shared commitment between the licensed retailer and Save-A-Lot creates a sustainable competitive advantage that can lead to profitable growth and long-term success for both licensees and Save-A-Lot.
