Report: Hy-Vee's new super-sized c-store format greenlit

LAKEVILLE, Minn. — Hy-Vee is planning a super-sized convenience store and gas station here, West Central Tribune reported last week. "What we're trying to do with this concept is meet the needs of those folks who live busy lives," Phil Hoey, the company's real-estate director, told the Lakeville City Council, according to the report. The council gave Hy-Vee the green light to build the store, which at 8,880 square feet will be the first of its kind for the big-box retailer. By comparison, the size of a typical convenience store is 1,500 to 5,000 square feet, Hoey said. (West Central Tribune)
