Hy-Vee Thinks Smaller; Offers No Update on Five Proposed Large Format Stores

Hy-Vee’s expansion in the Twin Cities is changing to focus on smaller-format stores as it extends timelines of construction on large ones.

A Fast & Fresh store that opened in Lakeville this week became Hy-Vee’s 11th Twin Cities metro location. It combines groceries, grab-and-go meals and a gas station in an 8,700-square-foot space that is slightly smaller than a typical Aldi.

The store, at 17380 Cedar Av., is several miles southwest of the Lakeville Hy-Vee store that opened in 2016.
