Ingles Expands Discount Concept

Sav-Mor, the discount format operated by Ingles Markets, has opened a new location in Greeneville, Tenn., and will soon open in Hendersonville, N.C., according to reports.

ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Sav-Mor, the discount format operated by Ingles Markets here, has opened a new location in Greeneville, Tenn., and will soon open in Hendersonville, N.C., according to reports.

The new stores will expand the fledgling discount banner to eight stores throughout Ingles’ market area.

According to Ingles, the Sav-Mor concept accommodates smaller shopping areas, carrying a limited selection of groceries, fresh meat and produce and is generally located in areas where the company has determined that area demographics could not support a full-service supermarket.

Both the Greeneville and Hendersonville stores are located in former Ingles Market locations.

Sav-Mor opened Nov. 18 in Greeneville. The Hendersonville store is nearly complete but an opening date has not been set, according to a report in the Times-News newspaper.
