University Drive in Tamarac, Florida. Bar Invest Group, Inc. purchased the property for $10,700,000.

The property is conveniently located at the intersection of McNab Road and University Drive, central to a very dense population base in this part of Broward County. The value orientation of Save-A-Lot ideally suits the demographic profile of the trade area.”
