Ground breaking took place this morning at the corner of Washington and Monroe Streets in Clinton, for the new location of the Clinton Save-A-Lot.


Owner Dave Jackson has operated the local Save-A-Lot from its present location on North Center street just north of the square, for the past 17 years.


Jackson told Regional Radio News it's been a grueling process to get to this point.



Jackson says the new building will be 60-percent larger than their present location.



Jackson says the project will be using a local general contractor, and the majority of the sub-contractors will also be local.



The new Clinton Save-A-Lot is being financed by 2 local banks.



Lance White, a commercial loan officer at the State Bank of Lincoln in Clinton, told Regional Radio News they were pleased to be a part of the financing of the new Clinton Save-A-Lot.



Justin Fentress, Vice President at DeWitt Savings Bank in Clinton, said their bank is also happy to be a part of financing the local Save-A-Lot project.



The Jackson family have had various businesses in the Clinton community, for many decades. 

Dave's father Don was honored by being one of those participating in the Monday ground breaking at the new Save-A-Lot location.  Jackson also had many of his Save-A-Lot staff be a part of the ceremony.
