Hy-Vee Plans Twin Cities Expansion
By Grocery Headquarters Staff
Hy-Vee announced plans for a major expansion of its Minnesota operations into the Twin Cities market. Hy-Vee has been a fixture in Minnesota communities since 1969 and currently has 17 employee-owned stores statewide with approximately 5,100 employees. “Our commitment to excellent customer service, health and wellness, and culinary expertise is unlike anything in the market to date,” says Randy Edeker, Chairman, CEO and President of Hy-Vee. “Minnesota and its residents have long been important partners, and we are proud to extend that partnership into the Twin Cities area.” The proposed expansion would add several new stores to the Twin Cities market per year, over the next several years. Each store opened will be approximately 90,000-square foot, with an investment of approximately $14-16 million, creating anywhere from 400-550 new jobs.
