MacArthur Hy-Vee Opens Today


Today’s official opening of the Hy-Vee store on South MacArthur is about more than just convenient shopping for that neighborhood.

 

City officials and business leaders along that corridor see the $24 million store complex as the linchpin for the revitalization of an area that used to be one of Springfield’s busiest shopping hubs.

 

The store has well over 600 full- and part-time employees.

 

It’s also the subject of a full-page newspaper ad today, taken out by local labor unions, thanking the company for using union labor to build the store under the shell of the old K-Mart complex.
