PHLF Introduces Grocer to Hill District

March 7, 2008

For nearly a quarter a century, the residents of the Hill District have sought to attract a quality full service grocer to the Hill.

When Dr. Howard B. Slaughter, Jr. became Chief Executive Officer of Landmarks Community Capital Corporation (LCCC) a subsidiary of Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation (PHLF) in October 2007, he made it a top priority to locate a suitable grocer interested in locating in the Hill District.

PHLF worked with Save-A-Lot in locating a new store in Wilkinsburg and experienced excellent cooperation with their design and graphics.

After a series of meetings to engage Save-A-Lot’s interest in the Hill District, LCCC hosted a breakfast meeting to introduce Save-A-Lot to the community and City officials.

The next step is to have a meeting in the Hill District to discuss the possibility and viability of this grocer locating in the Hill District, which is scheduled for April 12th. Stay tuned…

Save-A-Lot has provided the community two videos for viewing by clicking here.
