WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Hy-Vee Inc. has released details about one of the first stores it is hoping to open in Indiana as part of a planned expansion beyond its current eight-state operating region.
Hy-Vee is finalizing plans to secure approximately 26 acres at the southwest corner of Whitestown Parkway and S. County Road 700 E. in Zionsville, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis. The company is currently working through its due diligence process for the location. Plans call for an approximately 150,000-square-foot store.
“As Hy-Vee continues to grow and evolve, we have so much to offer consumers across the U.S. that we knew it was time to expand our footprint even further,” said Randy Edeker, chairman and CEO of Hy-Vee. “As customers’ shopping habits change and their needs evolve, we have services and offerings that we believe will bring an entirely new retail experience to those in Indianapolis.”
“We are excited that Hy-Vee has chosen Zionsville as a location to put down new roots,” said Zionsville mayor Emily Styron. “With their commitment to quality of service, variety of products, selection of healthy food and an in-store pharmacy, Hy-Vee will benefit Zionsville residents, our neighboring communities and visitors. We are grateful for the collaboration with the Hy-Vee team and welcome them to town.”
This store will be one of Hy-Vee’s first locations to open outside the company’s current eight-state region. Just recently, the company announced that it would be expanding its footprint into several new states, including Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama.
Additional information related to this location will be announced as details are finalized.
