Grocery chain planning move into central Indiana

The grocery store chain currently operates nearly 300 stores in eight states, but this would be the first in Indiana.

ZIONSVILLE, Ind. — A new grocery chain is coming to central Indiana. 

Iowa-based Hy-Vee, which currently has stores in eight Midwest states, announced plans Tuesday to build a store in Zionsville. The 150,000-square-foot building would be built on 26 acres at the southwest corner of Whitestown Parkway and South CR 700 East.

Hy-Vee is still finalizing plans to secure the location, the company said in a release.

"As Hy-Vee continues to grow and evolve, we have so much to offer consumers across the U.S. that we knew it was time to expand our footprint even further," said Hy-Vee Chairman and CEO Randy Edeker. "As customers' shopping habits change and their needs evolve, we have services and offerings that we believe will bring an entirely new retail experience to those in Indianapolis."

Hy-Vee recently announced plans to grow outside of their current footprint and put stores in Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama. The Zionsville store would be one of the first Hy-Vee locations in the new region.

"Hy-Vee will benefit Zionsville residents, our neighboring communities and visitors," said Zionsville Mayor Emily Styron. "We are grateful for the collaboration with the Hy-Vee team and welcome them to town."

Hy-Vee currently has nearly 300 locations.
