The Save-A-Lot on Lexington Road will open at 8 a.m. on May 12.
The store's downtown location, next to city hall, is owned by the city. The lease isn't up until Sept. 5, and so the city will continue to collect $4,276 in rent until then, but the grocery store tenant will close on May 10.
Mayor John W.D. Bowling has said he favors a consultant's suggestion that the Save-A-Lot building be knocked down, a police department be built and city hall remodeled to create a municipal complex.
The Saver-Group announced in September it would move the downtown grocery store when it bought the Piggly Wiggly and the shopping center for $1.6 million. The Piggly Wiggly was remodeled over the winter, but the rest of the complex stayed the same.
