Target in Waconia is now advertising in the store that they will be getting fresh foods such as fruits and vegetables. I don’t think the store is expanding the building but they are expanding the grocery section.
It’s still a ways away, but SuperTarget is officially coming. The 177,000 square foot retail and grocery store will open up on the east side of town around July of 2008. Not only will it bring a major ‘big box’ store to town, but it’ll also come with other, un-named, stores. Most SuperTarget do have sister stores attached to the side so this isn’t much of a surprise however it will alter that small town appeal.
It’s bitter sweet and I don’t know how long my wife and I will stay after SuperTarget arrives. What are your thoughts on SuperTarget coming to town?
Earlier this year there were talks of a Target on the east side of town, however those plans were pulled as Target had bigger plans.
SuperTarget is now setting it’s sights on Waconia and it could become a reality. The 177,000 square foot store would be located on the south side off highway 5 on the east side of town.
Target hasn’t officially announced it’s plans, but the idea has gone to the planning commission for approval.
No start date or completion date is known, but it does look like SuperTarget wants to make Waconia home.
Mackenthun’s grocery store, which has a history of quickly growing bigger and better, is getting ready to grow yet again. This time with a 15,000 square foot expansion (currently it’s 50,000) on the west side. The push? A wider selection of organic and natural foods and a deli expansion.
The expansion may start as early as this fall, but the store really wants to know what you want before it starts anything.
If you want to voice your opinion, just call the main store line at 952-442-2512 and let them know you want to be in the focus group. They want your opinion, even if you don’t care for organic foods. It’s an expansion, who knows what they might add!
