Shop ‘N Save Market was founded in Belleville, Illinois, in 1979. Formerly a part of the SuperValu chain, Shop ‘N Save is now independently owned, with more than 44 locations throughout Missouri and Illinois. The company has headquarters in Kirkwood, Missouri.
While SuperValu supplied many family-owned stores, it has had difficulty in recent years, keeping up with the competition from Walmart and Giant Eagle. Its decision to sell off some of the Shop ‘N Save markets was not an easy one, says a company spokesperson.
Shop ‘N Save Market continues to maintain their presence in?the Missouri/Illinois area, with only one store closing in the past 3 years. The company has approximately 3,800 full-time employees. Most locations offer full-service pharmacies and bakeries.
