Iowa grocer Hy-Vee has added a third former Shopko location to its plans to expand its small-format Dollar Fresh concept in rural Minnesota.

Hy-Vee Inc. of West Des Moines closed May 15 on the $1.255 million purchase of a vacant 42,516-square-foot store at 3225 10th St E. in Glencoe. It comes on the heels of Hy-Vee's purchase of vacant stores in New Prague and St. Peter in Minnesota and stores in at least six Iowa communities. The sellers were identified as SAM Larry LLC in Minneapolis and 520 Mike LLC in Plymouth. The price works out to $29.52 per square foot.

Wisconsin-based Shopko filed for bankruptcy in 2019 andclosed the last of its 350 stores last June. Hy-Vee hasn't announced any other locations it plans to acquire.

The listed Shopko closings in Minnesota included Aitkin, Duluth, Ely, Fairmont, Fergus Falls, Glenwood, Luverne, Mankato, Marshall, Moose Lake, Mora, Morris, North Branch, Perham, Pipestone, Rochester, Roseau, Two Harbors, Windom and Winona.

As Finance & Commerce has reported, Hy-Vee paid $1.28 million for a 25,700-square-foot store built in 2007 at 200 10th Ave. SE in New Prague. The grocer closed April 30 on the acquisition from Fargo-based Dakota UPREIT.

Hy-Vee opened its first Dollar Fresh stores in 2018. Hy-Vee has more than 265 stores in eight Midwestern states.
