New grocery store celebrates opening in North Baton Rouge

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - North Baton Rouge has a new place to shop for fresh fruits and vegetables.

The new Save-A-Lot on Plank Road celebrated its opening Tuesday evening along with city officials and owner Tyrone Legette. The store is located in the Brookwood Village Shopping Center.

Metro Councilwoman Chauna Banks-Daniel said it may have been 15 years since the old Winn Dixie Closed in the same location.

The hope is that the Save-A-Lot will be an anchor store that could draw others to the area.
