More Hy-Vee stores are in the works for the state of Tennessee, according to reporting from the Murfreesboro Daily News Journal.
The first Hy-Vee location is slated to go in Spring Hill, and a local commission recently approved plans for two Hy-Vee stores in an area that has experienced a ton of population growth.
One store will be built on the southwest side of the city and will be 116,000 square feet and will offer gas and a 6,000-square-feet convenience store. The other Hy-Vee will appear on the north side of Murfreesboro. That store will be considerably bigger at just over 153,000 square feet and will include a liquor store. The area also will have a gas station and convenience store.
The stores will also feature AI robots to pull groceries ordered online and deliver to customers for pick up.
Hy-Vee’s master plan includes a third store for the community that will offer a gas station, convenience store and a drive-through restaurant. The grocer is headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa.
Hy-Vee continues to flex its growth in Iowa, as construction continues on a distribution center located off I-35 in Cumming. The center, which will be used to run Lomar Distributing, a specialty products division of Hy-Vee, will be 635,000 square feet when complete. The facility will support distribution centers in Chariton and Cherokee, Iowa.
