Hy-Vee Opens First Distribution Facility Outside of Iowa


WEST DES MOINES, IA
Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Many retailers have spent 2017 making big strategic moves. Another company throwing its hat in the ring is Hy-Vee, according to the Des Moines Register. The company will be building its first distribution center outside of Iowa. The company plans on opening a 1-million-square-foot facility in southern Minnesota, potentially located near Austin, MN.

“The site in Austin is being considered for the project due to its centralized location in the company’s eight state territory, interstate access as well as the community’s ample workforce,” Hy-Vee said in a statement to the Register.

The project will be completed in phases, with construction anticipated to begin in 2019. The company has not yet purchased the 150 acre plot of land identified for the facility.

In recent years, the West Des Moines-based retailer has been expanding in the Twin Cities, having opened its seventh grocery store in the metro area, and the 24th in the state, in August.

In addition to this new center, Hy-Vee has two existing distribution centers in Iowa.

How will this impact the ever-competitive retail grocery industry? Check back with Deli Market News as we report.
