A discount grocery chain is planning to help metro Atlantans Save-A-Lot.

St. Louis-based Save-A-Lot, a wholly owned subsidiary of Supervalu Inc. (NYSE: SVU), plans to double its 1,200 U.S. store count in five years, and metro Atlanta is one of the markets it will target, said Rick Meyer, vice president of market development.

“A key part of our growth strategy is the Southeast, and that includes greater Atlanta,” he said. “We see an opportunity in Atlanta. We have refocused on Atlanta and we feel excited about that.”

Save-A-Lot, a limited-item grocery store, not only wants to grow in Atlanta, but also the rest of Georgia, said Meyer, who was in Atlanta and Georgia two weeks ago looking at potential markets.
