The closed Sack & Save located along I-35 will undergo renovations to be used as a collaborative working space for UNT students.

While final plans are still in the works, the former grocery store will be available for students of any major to work with one another. Bob Brown, vice president for finance and administration, said Sack & Save will act as a gateway property for the university.

The Board of Regents approved a renovation and capital equipment budget of $7 million in August. The budget comes from the general revenue of the university. The property was purchased for $6 million.

Brown said the building would open sometime in the next academic year.

“It won’t be owned by a particular college but be multi-disciplinary and designed to have students collaborate with each other,” he said.

UNT president Neal Smatresk has put together a campus committee that has been evaluating the space.

No set plans have been made as to what programs will be put in. The committee is meeting this semester to discuss the plans and will give their recommendations to the president for approval.
