On Saturday, October 1, 2022, the Save A Lot supermarket located at 200 Main Street in Johnson City, New York, announced on its business Facebook page that it had lost its lease to the building, which is currently being sold.

The Johnson City Save A Lot, which was independently owned and operated by Roberta Douglas and her husband, has been a staple of the Johnson City community for the last ten years.

According to local reports, the closing of this Save A Lot location will make things more difficult for many people in the area who lived within walking distance of the grocery store, especially for those who do not have vehicles.

Here's what one local shopper named Sue had to say about the closing of the Save A Lot store in a recent Google review:

Five star rating for Save a Lot. Save-A-Lot staff are/were professionally courteous - very helpful - food quality good. Closing Save a Lot is hardship and loss to long time residents who WALK to shop for their groceries. Had neighbors walk by in disbelief this past weekend - their shopping bags empty.... very sad....

According to a recent real estate listing on LoopNet, the building that housed the Save A Lot store appears to be under contract, pending a recent sale. The 14,679-square-foot building was listed at $1.15 million.
