Fareway Stores hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday for its new location at 512 River Avenue North in Belmond, Iowa. The new 13,100-s.f. store replaces Fareway’s original 8,700-s.f. Belmond store, according to the grocery chain.

“We are committed to remaining in Belmond and appreciate the local support we’ve received for nearly 30 years. We are dedicated to continue to offer an unmatched, full-service meat department; farm-fresh produce; low, competitive prices; and only the highest level of customer service for the next 30 years,” said Fareway CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “We also appreciate the efforts of city officials and other community members who worked so hard to make this new store location a reality.”

The original Fareway in Belmond, located at 115 Second Avenue Southeast, opened in 1987. The last day for business at that store was Tuesday; the property is under contract to be sold in early 2016.

The new store will continue to be managed by grocery manager Greg Herrold and market manager Jeff Meyers. The store will provide an additional check stand, wider aisles, expanded produce selection, more refrigeration, eight feet of additional meat selections and nearly double the frozen food selection.

“Our new store will allow us to provide customers with more space to expand product variety,” said Herrold. “If you still don’t find what you are looking for, please ask, and we will do our best to make good on requests.”

Fareway operates 112 stores in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota.
