Fareway Stores is planning to construct a 17,000-square-foot store in Coal Valley, Illinois, tentatively scheduled for 2026.

“Communities depend on a local grocer to offer high quality products and unmatched service. We look forward to offering these qualities to Coal Valley and area residents with a new Fareway store,” said Fareway CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “We want to thank city officials and economic development for helping make this project possible.”

The new store will provide customers with high quality meat, a full-service butcher counter, farm-fresh produce and other services, such as to-your-car carryout. The new store will also offer FastLanes, a self-service checkout option, as well as online shopping and curbside pick-up.

“We’re thrilled to announce the arrival of Fareway to the Village of Coal Valley, marking a significant milestone in our community’s journey. After six years of collaboration, we’re delighted to welcome back a local grocery store, with Fareway as our ideal partner,” said Mayor Mike Bartels.

“Fareway’s commitment and investment in Coal Valley are deeply appreciated, and we’re confident this partnership will greatly benefit our residents. Beyond fulfilling our need for a grocery store, Fareway’s presence has the potential to stimulate economic growth by generating jobs, supporting local businesses and fostering further development in the area.”

Additional details will be released in the future.
