SEFFNER — Nearly two years after losing its anchor tenant, Parsons Village Square once again has a large retailer as its centerpiece with the opening of Save-a-Lot at 729 W Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

The space has sat vacant since May 2014 when Bi-Lo, the parent company of Winn-Dixie, purchased area Sweetbay stores from its parent Delhaize America, and moved its Seffner location across the street to 750 W Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. (near Parsons Avenue).

Save-a-Lot opened Thursday, claiming approximately half of the 34,590-square-foot space that once housed a Winn-Dixie.

To celebrate its grand opening, Save-a-Lot distributed coupons good for free milk and bread during the store's first week of operations.

Also, the first 200 shoppers on Thursday received free 2-liter bottles of Pepsi and many enjoyed a free barbecue in the parking lot.

Save-a-Lot is known for offering a limited assortment of core items, mostly from its private label brands such as Wylwood, J. Higgs, World's Fair and Coburn Farms.

The store also features a special-buy wall along the right side where national brands are offered at discounted prices and seasonal items are located.

The new Seffner Save-a-Lot, which also considered moving into the Kingsway Plaza in Brandon two years ago before Dollar Tree opened there, will be the first of its local stores to offer beer and wine.

Save-a-Lot will be open for business daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

    FIGUERES, Spain — Salvador Dali's eccentric artistic and personal history took yet another bizarre turn Thursday with the exhumation of his embalmed remains in order to find genetic samples that could settle whether one of the founding figures of surrealism fathered a girl decades ago.
