Saar’s switching name to Super Saver Foods

Saar’s Marketplace in Oak Harbor was slated to officially change its name to Saar’s Super Saver Foods on Wednesday, General Manager John Hames said Monday.

Both brand-names are used on Saar’s stores, which are part of Unified Grocers, a retailer-owned wholesale grocery co-op, according to the Saar’s website.

“We’re always known for our great produce pricing and great value, but in our Super Saver format, we try to cut more pricing in all departments,” Hames said.

The Oak Harbor store, at 32199 State Highway 20, is having a “grand opening” to celebrate its new name, he said.

Saar’s has six other stores in Washington state, all but two — in Lakewood and Tacoma — operating under the Super Saver brand-name.
