KENOVA, WV (WOWK) – Renovations are complete at the Save A Lot in Kenova after a fire in 2021, and a grand re-opening has been set for this week.
According to store officials, the Save A Lot on 1400 Chestnut Street in Kenova is one of many of the company’s locations to be completely renovated to reflect its new branding. Officials say the space will be lighter and brighter with fresh paint, new décor and flooring and a new open-air ceiling. The layout will also create an “easier-to-shop footprint.”
