Save-A-Lot Grocery Store Coming to Orange

ORANGE, N.J.: Residents of the Oranges will soon have a new place in their community to shop for food.

Essex County Place has confirmed that Save-A-Lot will open a new location later this year in the City of Orange Township. The nationwide discount grocery store, which competes with chains such as Price Rite, Aldi, and Lidl, will open its next New Jersey store at 200 Central Avenue between South Center and Ogden Streets. According to a statement from Sabre Real Estate Group, the 15,000 square foot store will be housed in a redeveloped building close to multiple new residential developments that is owned by Equity Assets.

Previously, the structure, which sits near the borders of East Orange and South Orange, contained a car dealership called Route 280 Auto.

Save-A-Lot, which is based in suburban Missouri, opened its first Essex County location a few years ago in the former Key Food space on Springfield Avenue in Newark. Essex County Place reached out to Save-A-Lot last week and earlier this week regarding the upcoming store in Orange but the company has not returned our requests for comment.

Construction began last year at the property, which will include free parking and additional retail spaces along Central Avenue. The store is expected to open in April of this year, according to Sabre.
