Grocery store in food desert brings 30 new jobs

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC)

A new grocery store in Binghampton will help alleviate what is known as a food desert and create around 30 new jobs.

Construction on Save-A-Lot at the corner of Sam Cooper and Tillman has begun. 

The grocery store will anchor the Binghampton Gateway Center, where there will also be a Dollar Tree. 

The Save-A-Lot will provide people in the area with nutritious and affordable food options.
