West Des Moines, Iowa-based Hy-Vee Inc. is finalizing its plans to expand into Indiana. The company is set to secure approximately 26 acres at the southwest corner of Whitestown Parkway and S. County Road 700 E. in Zionsville, 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,” he said.
“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,” said Zionsville Mayor Emily Styron.
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.
Hy-Vee Inc. is an employee-owned corporation operating more than 285 retail stores across eight Midwestern states with sales of more than $12 billion annually.
