Save Mart corporate officers Mary Silva and Randy Slentz along with store Manager Tim King held an official ribbon cutting to celebrate the store's Grand Re-opening on the morning of April 13. Save Mart presented donation checks of $500 each to two local groups. Gina Christopher from Have a Heart Humane Society and Cynthia Needham Director of the Tehachapi High School Band were on hand to receive the checks.

Company officials and community leaders, including Mayor Ed Grimes, celebrated the grand reopening of the Save Mart store in Tehachapi today with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The event marked the culmination of a months-long transformation that modernized the store both on the inside and outside, including the logo.

As a result of the renovation, this Save Mart location added 20 new jobs, for a total of 89 positions at this store.

This is the sixth store under the Save Mart banner to incorporate the brand's fresh, updated look and the new features geared toward convenience and service, including:

Among the new features of the Tehachapi store:
