This is a hot top for people visiting Tahoe in the summer...if you are planning a picnic or need sandwiches for lunch call the deli at Save Mart. They make great sandwiches, the are reasonably priced. If you call the deli in advance they will have them ready when you walk in.

The prices really can't be beat at Savemart and if you're lucky you'll land a sweet Manager's Special! The staff at this particular Savemart is always friendly & working with a smile. In particular, Carol, remembered my name the first time i told her, & i always so excited to see me when i come into the supermarket. It's really nice to be greeted and treated like family!

Very standup California grocery store - has all the specialties you find in a major city grocery. We were particularly pleased with the Deli - handmade sandwiches to go, great salads, and pre-made sandwiches all delicious. Great selections on the brands for regular items - made our camping out meals exciting, nutritious, and easy. No need to pack your food for hundreds of miles to your cabin, airbnb or campsite - buy in town - easier on the freshness. Traffic into town is a bit slow but the parking and service offered is generous

Save Mart is one of the most convenient grocery shopping locations in Tahoe City. It's easy to get to and a great option to get whatever you need for a weekend on the lake or in the snow. Prices are higher than most grocery stores but that's not surprising for the location. They are well stocked and a convenient option for everything you need.

The alcohol is overpriced here. I mean, compared to Safeway right down the street. This is the fact. And if they override your favorite Taylor Swift song with an announcement you can just dip into the bathroom and they will be playing it in there at full volume and you'll be right back to your soundtrack. But their food IS cheaper. What does it all mean? (valentine's day existential crisis complete)

Must be one of the only grocery stores I have ever frequented and am constantly surprised that the employee smoking area is also within 5 feet of the entrance and disabled parking spaces.

To be clear: I only stopped here because I needed beer and a refill on my five gallon Sparkletts water bottle, both serving distinct utility while camping north of Truckee a few weeks ago. Thankfully, Save-Mart is not located in an Indiana dry county, and they had a water machine in front of the store. Double rainbow kind of win for us. Sure, the water was 40¢ a gallon, nearly double the machines in my native Pasadena, but still cheaper and easier than MacGuyver-ing a solar still using pinking shears, hundreds of Hershey's kisses foil wrappers stuck together with Ponderosa sap, a plastic spoon from Menchie's, and the foldout from the October 1994 issue of Playboy featuring the girls of the SEC. As for the beer, they had my Boont Ale from the Anderson Valley that goes so well with S'Mores and charcoal-cooked turkey dogs... in that order. A few bags of ice, and a little chit-chat with the cashier, and we were on our way back to the lake. I can't speak to their olive bar selection, but Save-Mart came through in a pinch. Considering this is the only supermarket we passed between Virginia City, NV and Truckee, CA, I wasn't being too picky. Or maybe I just wasn't paying attention.

The store itself seemed fine, but the lady at our checkout quickly developed a really really bad attitude when I told her that we didn't want to purchase a plastic grocery bag for our items and that we will never purchase a bag, in reference to California's plastic bag ban (California law prohibits free plastic bags from grocery stores unless you buy them or are on welfare). She slammed our items down and shoved them toward us with the receipt and quit talking to us. Customer service seems to be lacking at this store. Maybe that's just how she is, or she subscribes to the liberal "think free (as long as you think like me)" rhetoric. Anyway, next time we need something while we're on this side of the lake we'll go to Safeway.

Good selection. Nice quality. But bakery staff completely inattentive. When asked they served themselves a bagel and walked away. So low traffic. Good quality. But self service.
