By Rich Lord,
Officials of a St. Louis-based grocery chain confirmed today that they are interested in locating a store in the Hill District, a city neighborhood that has long sought a full-service grocer.
But officials from Save-A-Lot said during a breakfast meeting at Station Square that the process is still very preliminary.
The company is reviewing “multiple” sites, but a map distributed at the meeting indicated a possible candidate is at Centre Avenue and Heldman Street.
Save-A-Lot, which has several stores in the region and distributes food to Shop ‘n Save and Foodland stores, typically builds $3 million groceries with about 15,000 square feet and 20 to 25 employees, officials said today.
It has not decided on how it would finance a Hill store.
