Levittown Grocery Store Closes Doors

The Save-A-Lot on Haines Road closed recently. Food remained on the shelves as a sign told customers the location was done.

The Save-A-Lot grocery store on Haines Road in Bristol Township closed last week.

Products remained on the shelves as a few customers stopped to read the closed sign at the entrance. The sign said the location is "permanently closed."

An email to the company on why the Levittown store, which has been in the that location for about 10 years, is now closed was not returned.

Save-A-Lot stores are independentlyly owned and store owners license the brand name. In 2011, the chain was one of the largest grocers in the nation with over 1,300 locations.


What do you think should take the place of the suhttered food store? Tell us in the comments section below.

Move the 7 eleven there and tear down the old store and create parking for the shopping center. The center is outdated and an eyesore! The parking is not good at all and the storefronts are trashy! This is levittown not weat philly which this shopping center reminds me of only worse!

Tear it all down. it is a trashy mess over there. An eye sore of the community! If that is not an option how about putting the Bottom Dollar store there? You have to eithe fix it up or tear it down. Tear down the 7-11 and the little mall and put a gian WAWA there!

Some type of dollar store. (Family Dollar, Dollar General, Dollar Tree)With the apartments there it would give the residents an affordable place to shop.

How about a soup kitchen, God knows times are hard and getting harder by the second.there are a ton of people who would benefit from that more than another store that won't last anyway.

bottom dollar has lousy prices, the only place that would have comparable prices to save a lot would be aldi I don't want no stinking Wawa or anything else like that there we have plenty of those what would be really nice would be a produce junction very cheap vegetables without having to drive 20 minutes it's going to suck not having save a lot there the 1 on street road closed as well now I have to find another 1 somewhere I got all my canned goods from them very cheap 50 Cent a can

Chris-you can go over the Rt 1 bridge into Jersey. Get off at the Olden Ave exit and just follow that up maybe a mile or so and Sav-A-Lot will be on your right. Very easy to get to, not a long drive (closer to Levittown than Street Road is) and the store is very very clean and doesn't have the funky smell the Levittown Sav-A-Lot used to.

Holly, The Save-A-Lot on Street Road is closed too! No more in PA I heard.

I would like to see a Wawa built there since I only have 3 of them within half square mile.. such hardship

When does the construction start for the Bottom Dollar store on Mill Creek and Edgley?

Bottom Dollar sucks, someone tear down that whole mall and build another bar or a strip club god knows Bristol twp doesn't have enough of those.

The store was always dirty and dingy the 3 or 4 times I visited. Was easier and cleaner to go to a main stream enterprise such as Shop Rite or Pathmark. Not much more in pricing at those as well. I will not miss it.

President Obama has nothing to do with the closure of this trashy store!

How about some type of emergency health care clinic with an imaging center (x-ray, CT, MRI) so you don't have to wait hours in Lower Bucks ER for something minor like a few simple stitches or a hairline fracture that needs a cast? (Might as well create good paying jobs that benefit the community if we are going to do anything at all)

Please put a bottom dollar there. We need one closer than bensalem or penndel
