Officials from grocery chain Save-A-Lot expect to complete their headquarters move from Earth City to St. Ann as soon as next week.

Save-A-Lot’s new home, in the former Northwest Plaza Mall, will encompass 162,000 square feet, house more than 500 employees and feature test kitchens, a model store, and sensory and IT labs.

Those test facilities and new amenities for employees were a big driver in the company’s move from one St. Louis suburb to another, officials said.

The headquarters is part of a dead mall that has found new life as the home of Save-A-Lot, Charter Communications and St. Louis County government offices.

Save-A-Lot’s new home underwent a $20 million renovation, with $8 million coming from the company and $12 million from the building’s owner.

Save-A-Lot, owned by a Canadian private equity firm, operates 1,300 stores in 36 states, including 37 in the St. Louis area.
