Save-A-Lot Corporate HQ Moves Into The Crossings at Northwest

By on December 5, 2018

From St. Louis Public Radio:  Save-A-Lot’s corporate headquarters is the latest tenant at The Crossings at Northwest.

The grocery retailer made the decision to move its headquarters from Earth City to St. Ann in April. Kevin Proctor, the chief investment officer at Save-A-Lot, said the purpose was to create space that better fit the company’s needs.

“We had outgrown the existing office,” Proctor said, “but we also lack in the existing offices a lot of the facilities that we have here in the new office, which we need as a business going forward.”

The roughly $20 million facility includes a fitness center, test kitchens, a model test store, a cafe, a sensory lab and an IT innovation lab. Save-A-Lot invested $8 million into the project, while the developer, Raven Development, brought in the remaining $12 million.

The 162,000-square-foot space that once housed JCPenney’s was also the source of contention between County Executive Steve Stenger and the St. Louis County Council, after Stenger moved some county operations into The Crossings at Northwest.

Proctor said Save-A-Lot was focused on what location would best serve the company and its employees. He said ultimately they decided staying in St. Louis was the best move.
