Hy-Vee to Open in Closed Cub Foods Plymouth location
Residents could purchase groceries at a new Hy-Vee store as early as late fall. The store will open in the refurbished Cub Foods location near Rockford Road and Highway 55 in Plymouth. The Cub Foods location closed unexpectedly to shoppers in early July.
The location will be the first refurbished grocery store in the Twin Cities. However, the Iowa-based grocery store chain has opened in refurbished spaces in other markets.
A Hy-Vee spokesperson confirmed the opening with CCX News Friday.
“We look forward to having a grocery store in Plymouth,” said Tina Potthoff, vice president of communications. “We are pleased we can now move forward with opening a store to serve customers later this fall.”
Hy-Vee Continues to Grow Twin Cities presence
Hy-Vee began its march into the Twin Cities market by building and opening a store in New Hope, where a Kmart used to be. They followed that success by opening a store in Brooklyn Park near Highway 610.
Robbinsdale will be next. Construction crews are finishing up a new store where Rainbow Foods used to be. Construction required the removal of the abandoned Terrace Theatre. The demolition sparked outrage, protests and even a boycott by local Terrace enthusiasts and historians. But all signs currently point to a successful store opening as early as late summer. A sign on West Broadway says that Hy-Vee is hiring. The store could employ as many as 400 full and part-time workers.
In Maple Grove, plans are back on to build a Hy-Vee store in the southwest part of the city near the Corcoran border. Revised plans for a Maple Grove store at Bass Lake Road and Brockton Lane should come before the Maple Grove City Council meeting on Aug. 6.
