Save-A-Lot lays off workers after move to new HQ



Discount grocery chain Save-A-Lot is laying off employees only a month after moving into a new St. Louis County headquarters with the promise of retaining and adding jobs in exchange for state assistance.

One employee who wished to remain anonymous told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that an estimated 80 employees at the new headquarters were laid off.

The Missouri Department of Economic Development is giving more than $3 million to help support the recent move. These credits are contingent on the company retaining workers and hitting workforce targets. 

It was not clear if the layoffs will affect Save-A-Lot’s state assistance. The company says it is “committed¬†to delivering on the agreements made moving into the new” location.
