Fareway Stores Inc. plans to relocate the current Eldora Fareway store to a new location across the street from the current site in Eldora, Iowa.
The new construction will provide for a 10,600-square- foot store. Site work and demolition is set to start in early 2024, with a projected open date in 2025.
“Fareway has served Eldora and neighboring communities since 1982, and we are excited to provide a new store to continue to best serve our customers,” said CEO Reynolds W. Cramer.
“We look forward to serving area residents and want to thank city staff and community leaders for helping make this project possible.”
The new store will provide fresh, highest quality meat; a full-service butcher counter; farm-fresh produce; low, competitive prices; and the highest level of customer service, including to-your-car carryout. The new store will offer FastLanes and a self-service checkout option, as well as online shopping and curbside pick-up available online.
Eldora City Council Member Carey Callaway echoed positive comments regarding the store’s opening. “We are excited to improve the shopping experience of our community members with a new Fareway store,” Callaway said.
“Our city council, city staff and citizens have been supporters of Fareway since its opening and are excited to see Fareway’s commitment flourish in Eldora and the surrounding communities.”
More details will be forthcoming in the near future.
