Discount grocer Save-A-Lot has announced a partnership with Swiftly, a retail media tech company. The collaboration aims to expand Save-A-Lot’s digital footprint while enhancing customer, supplier, and retail media engagement.
Fred Boehler, CEO of Save A Lot, said “Pushing Save-A-Lot into the digital age is a key focus for our leadership team and Swiftly plays a critical part in this journey. Our customers are looking for ways to stretch their dollars as economic challenges make it increasingly difficult to make ends meet. Digital solutions, with a focus on personalization and savings, will not only meet our customers’ needs, but also sharpen Save-A-Lot’s competitive edge.”

This strategy aims to boost store visits, increase basket sizes, and elevate sales for its independent retail partners.
