Addition Completes Huron Center Development
The City of Northglenn celebrated the addition of a new grocery store, Save-A-Lot, located in the Huron Center at 104th Avenue & Huron Street. The Northglenn Save-A-Lot location is the first in the nation to feature the chain’s new, modern design and also is the first grocery store on the west side of I-25 in 10 years.
“I think our residents will be thrilled with Save-A-Lot due to the incredible selection, spaciousness of the store, diverse products and especially their low prices,” said Mayor Carol Dodge. “I really look forward to shopping there.”
The opening of the grocery store completes the $13 million redevelopment project at the Huron Center which also includes a new Arby’s and AutoZone.
"This project is a great example of what urban renewal authorities can do to revitalize challenging retail areas by bringing stakeholders to the table," said Rosie Garner, chair of Northglenn Urban Renewal Authority.
The opening marks the 16th Colorado location for Save-A-Lot. All of the Colorado locations are owned and operated by Leevers Supermarkets, Inc., which is headquartered in Franktown. Leevers Supermarkets, doing business as Save-A-Lot, started as a family-owned business in 1938. In 2012, Leevers Supermarkets became a 100 percent employee-owned (ESOP) company with approximately 200 members, a 65 percent minority ownership and 21 stores located in Colorado and Florida.
President John Leevers said, “We try to go one step further by working with customers to build healthier families and communities. When you shop with us, you support our local employee owners.”
Leevers takes pride in customizing their Save-A-Lot stores to meet the unique needs of each individual community. Save-A-Lot strives to work closely with their neighborhoods to meet the desires of their customers. A community meeting was held on Oct. 25 to get direct feedback and suggestions from Northglenn residents of what types of products and services that they would like to have at the store. Additionally, they conducted an online survey to have residents express their shopping preferences and habits. More than 165 surveys were received. Based on the community feedback, many of those ideas have been incorporated at the store including free coffee and a seating area for shoppers. In addition, the Northglenn location is the only Save-A-Lot store that offers ‘grab and go’ items, a convenient feature due to the proximity to Northglenn High School.
