Mayor Mike Houston says it’s unlike any grocery store he’s ever seen… and one of the most anticipated openings he can recall. Now city officials just hope that the public’s response to the new Hy-Vee store will match the hype.
Tuesday’s grand opening drew around 150 people before the doors even opened at 6am. And Houston says the enthusiastic response indicates a level of excitement about South MacArthur Boulevard and its future potential that he hasn’t seen in years.
The $24 million complex is viewed as a turning point in efforts to revitalize the business climate along that major commercial corridor.
