(Tehachapi—April 13, 2017) Company officials and community leaders, including Mayor Ed Grimes, celebrated the grand reopening of the Save Mart store in Tehachapi today with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The event marked the culmination of a months-long transformation that modernized the store both on the inside and outside, including the logo.

“The interior looks amazing. You’ll want to shop all day here. We’re offering more products and services that today’s families want,” said Store Manager Tim King. “It’s essentially a brand new store for the community.”

As a result of the renovation, this Save Mart location added 20 new jobs.

This is the sixth store under the Save Mart banner to incorporate the brand’s fresh, updated look and the new features geared toward convenience and service, including:

  • Burrito/taco/nacho bar
  • A “Valley Fresco” case with vegetable/fruit-infused water & fresh-cut produce
  • Specialty sandwiches
  • Salad & hot soup bar
  • New meat counter
  • Expanded selection of natural, organic & bulk foods
  • Café seating with Wifi
  • Self-checkout lanes

To reinforce Save Mart’s commitment to the community, Tehachapi High School Band and Flag Team and Have a Heart Humane Society each received a $500 donation to commemorate the store’s grand re-opening. All year long, the company supports about 60 local schools and charities through the Shares powered by eScrip program, which donates up to 3% of purchases to those non-profits.
