Hy-Vee planned for Vermillion River Crossings

Farmington residents will soon have a new place to grab their groceries.

Hy-Vee supermarket is set to break ground in the southwest corner of Highway 50 and Dushane Parkway, City Council members announced at Monday’s meeting.

The proposal still needs final approval from the planning commission, which will hold a special meeting on Aug. 16.

The Hy-Vee will have many of the typical amenities that are offered in its other stores, the council said.

More information will be available to the public a week before the planning commission’s meeting.

No word yet on when the store would break ground or when it would open.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled,” Mayor Todd Larson said. “It’s the longest secret I’ve ever kept.”

Hy-Vee has submitted plans for a Farmington store and the project is in the early approval stages, said Tara Deering-Hansen, Hy-Vee’s group vice president for communications.

“We do not have a definitive timeline on when construction will start nor do we have a tentative store opening date,” she said.

Farmington would be among new and planned Hy-Vee stores in the Twin Cities. The Iowa-based grocer just opened a Lakeville location, already has stores in Oakdale and New Hope and plans stores in Eagan, Cottage Grove and Brooklyn Park.
