Lowes Foods Logo

It has been one year since Lowes Foods introduced a new grocery store known as Just $ave Foods. On March 2, 2011, the very first Just $ave store was opened in Pilot Mountain, NC. With such a successful year and with warm community responses to the store, Just $ave has since opened 12 other locations and is rapidly growing!

Just $ave is often referred to as the “frugal cousin” of Lowes Foods where the emphasis is placed on bringing their local communities great savings and products for their customers each and every day! Just $ave offers tons of savings throughout the store with their wall of values, bins of savings, the dollar spot aisle, and the “Pick 5 for $19.99” program in the meat department. They also place an emphasis on buying locally grown and manufactured products which support local businesses and boosts the local economy.

Beginning on March 7th, the Pilot Mountain store will kick off a chain of exciting events that will continue throughout the week! You can stop by the store between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm and spin the “Wheel of Wow” for your chance to win free products such as milk, ice cream, soda, cereal, chips, and much more!

Don’t forget to bring the kids because they will also have a special appearance of Squeeky the Mouse from the Danger Ranger Kid’s Club Program. Johnsonville Sausage will also be on site grilling food and collecting donations for the Outreach Food Bank of Surry County. On March 8th, Pilot Mountain Pride will be on site featuring some of the locally grown fresh produce that is currently being sold at the store. On March 9th and 10th, the Pilot Mountain Police Department and Fire Department will host a hot dog wagon to raise funds for new equipment for their local units. Boy Scout troops will be hosting a car wash from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm on March 10th to raise money for their unit. And on March 11th, the Surry County Second Chance Animal Rescue will be on site from 1:00 – 4:00 pm, hosting a pet adoption event.
