Mt. Jackson Save-A-Lot grocery keeping its doors open


By Sally Voth - svoth@nvdaily.com

The Save-A-Lot discount grocery store in Mt. Jackson is being spared from the closures announced by parent company Supervalu Inc.

Minnesota-based Supervalu recently announced it was closing 60 stores across the country. Besides Albertsons and ACME, 22 Save-A-Lots were marked for closure.

The announcement came following a severe drop in first-quarter profits and the firing of its CEO.

Mark Linski owns the Save-A-Lot on Main Street in Mt. Jackson. He said that the store opened about 11 years ago and would continue to serve bargain-savvy shoppers.

"[We're] absolutely going to stay open," he said in a Thursday interview. "There's no status change for the Save-A-Lot in Mt. Jackson."

Store manager Duane Shirkey said Thursday that the Save-A-Lot to the Mt. Jackson outlet is in Charles Town, W.Va.,

"We're definitely not [closing]," he emphatically stated in a phone interview on Thursday. "Been a good week. The first of the month's usually the best week. Been pretty steady this week."

Shirkey agreed that discounted groceries are popular during a recession.

"We can save them some money," he said.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.
