Skogen’s Festival Foods will open a new location Oct. 6 at 1109 Chippewa Crossing Blvd. in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.
“We have been working on coming to the Chippewa Falls community for a long time and we are very excited to finally open this store,” said Mark Skogen, president and CEO.
“It’s an honor to join the Chippewa Falls community, and we’re looking forward to providing our newest guests with an enjoyable shopping experience, excellent product quality and exceptional value.”
With a team of 160 employees, the Chippewa Falls location is the first Festival Foods in the Chippewa Valley region to feature a food court. Located near the front entrance, shoppers can choose from a food lineup that includes sushi, Asian stir-fry and gourmet popcorn.
Shoppers will also find Festival Foods’ traditional grocery options, including a large bakery and deli, meat and sustainable seafood selections, natural and organic foods and wine and spirits.
In addition, the Festival Foods Chippewa Falls’ store will offer a variety of take-home meals, including a grab-and-go kiosk of fresh, prepared, hot, ready-to-eat meals like chicken sandwiches, cheeseburgers and pizza.
Catering, online shopping and store pick-up services add to the grocer’s wide selection.
In conjunction with the grand opening, Festival Foods has announced a partnership with the Chippewa Falls Parks and Recreation Department, committing $10,000 towards new playground equipment at Flag Hill.
This collaboration supports the department’s initiative, launched in 2021, to create a fully accessible playground at Flag Hill. The project, set to break ground in early spring 2024, includes a redesign of stairs connecting Irvine Park to Flag Hill.
