Hy-Vee Building Its First Store in the Twin Cities

WEST DES MOINES, IA – Hy-Vee is taking a step into the Twin Cities by opening its first store there.

Finance & Commerce reports that the Iowa-based grocery chain has a tentative deal for an 80,000 to 90,000-sqaure-foot store on a former Kmart site.  The New Hope City Council approved the deal to sell 13.3 acres to Hy-Vee.  The site will also feature a 3,000 square-foot gas station, according to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.

“Our commitment to excellent customer service, health and wellness, and culinary expertise is unlike anything in the market to date,” Hy-Vee Chairman, President and CEO Randy Edeker said in a statement. “Minnesota and its residents have long been important partners, and we are proud to extend that partnership into the Twin Cities area.”

Currently, Hy-Vee’s closest store to the Twin Cities is in Faribault, MN and is about 60 miles from the new proposed location.

The Business Journal also reports that Hy-Vee is already in talks for more stores in the Twin Cities.
