With a turn of a shovel, city officials broke ground for what they see as a re-birth of MacArthur Boulevard. The Hy-Vee chain will move into the old K-Mart building and are also adding a coffee shop and service station on the property.
Alderman Corey Jobe says it is a huge shot-in-the arm and says the company’s investment signals other growth is soon to come. The store is slated to open by next spring and with it, “dozens and dozens of new jobs” according to Jobe. The former Spillway Lanes is being torn down. Construction crews have already begun work.
