Fareway Stores Inc. plans to construct a 19,000-square-foot store at State and Oak Streets in Granger, Iowa. Construction is set to begin in 2024, with a tentative opening in the summer 2025. In the meantime, public infrastructure work will be completed along State Street and Highway 17.

Fareway will provide customers with fresh quality meat with full-service butcher counters, farm-fresh produce, competitive prices and high-quality customer service, including to-your-car carryout. Additionally, the location will also offer FastLanes, a self-service checkout option and online shopping and curbside pick-up.
