Lowes Foods Logo

Lowes Foods will open a new Just $ave Foods store in Oxford this week. This store closed as a Lowes Foods yesterday and will reopen as Just $ave on October 28th. Grand opening activities will be held on November 2nd with a live radio broadcast from The Truth Network, product sampling and prize giveaways. The new format is based on extensive customer research that shows that customers are looking for more ways to save money, save time and support their communities.

The store will offer many great ways to save including a “Dollar Spot” aisle, wall of values and bins of savings. One of the most popular Just$ave programs is the meat department’s “Pick 5 for $19.99” offering. The store brand products such as Lowes Foods, Better Valu and Top Care will still be available. Just $ave will also feature a number of Blue Ribbon products which are the best of the best in each department, including fried chicken, sweet tea, apple pie, pound cake, fresh ground sausage and more. These ready-made products will help customers save time in the kitchen. Many products available in the store will be sourced locally, allowing a lower cost of distribution and fresher products for the customer while supporting other North Carolina based businesses.

Just$ave has also partnered with WilcoHess to offer Fuel Rewards so customers can earn $0.05 off per gallon of gas for every $100 they spend in groceries.

On top of all of the great ways to save, Just$ave will offer hometown customer service, and the same familiar faces will be there to serve customers. The new customer service center will be centrally located between the registers in order to make checkout faster and more convenient. The company will continue to play an active role in the community and focus on programs that help feed the hungry and educate our youth.
