New grocery store gets approval
19 Aug 2019
The City Planning Commission voted to unanimously approve Hy-Vee’s site plan for a grocery store at 2424 East Clairemont; the site of the former K-Mart store in Eau Claire. However, the planned Hy-Vee will offer more than your average grocery store.
The K-Mart building has been closed for close to five years. Now, Hy-Vee will be tearing down that empty building and replacing it with a 96-thousand square foot, multi-use store.
According to community development director Scott Allen, the new building will be rotated to face west - instead of south like it is currently.
