Hy-Vee builds store of the future
Hy-Vee’s new supermarket in the Twin Cities suburb of Savage, Minn., embodies several of the retailer’s key initiatives, including continued development of fresh prepared food offerings and innovative center store concepts.
The $28 million store, profiled by Retail Leader sister publication Progressive Grocer, is Hy-Vee’s sixth location in the Twin Cities market since the West Des Moines, Iowa-based grocery chain began its push there in 2015, features an expansive food court in addition to a full-service Market Grille restaurant, the trend-aware F&F clothing boutique, and Basin, a 2,200-square-foot bath and beauty department.
“We have a lot of unique destinations in this store,” says Nick Haidar, store director of the 98,000-square-foot market.
As part of those destinations, Hy-Vee — Progressive Grocer’s 2017 Retailer of the Year — is investing heavily in its Aisle One offerings, where shoppers will find a vast array of customizable cuisines. The round-the-clock store features Asian, Mexican and Italian options, as well as deli, smokehouse and comfort food selections.
