There has been tremendous volatility in certain markets over the last few weeks (for example, the stock and currency markets). When this happens, some tend to lump all of their investments
New Hope Welcomes HyVee To The Neighborhood
Grocery shoppers in the near northwestern suburbs have a huge new option with Hy-Vee opening its doors today in New Hope. If you've spent anytime near 42nd Ave and Winnetka in New Hope you've seen the supermarket and gas station complex go up piece by piece. Today the doors opened to the public for the first-time.
I stopped in to grab a few items since i was in the neighborhood. If the entire day was anything like the 25 or so minutes I was there in the 2 o'clock hour, it's fair to call it a pretty successful grand opening. The parking lot was packed with cars lined up to get in. The store was full. And most importantly from what I could tell the store was staffed to handled the crowd. The shelves were stocked and the 15 check out lanes were long but moving.
I live in Golden Valley. We split our grocery shopping between Costco in St. Louis Park and Cub Foods in Crystal. We make the occasional trip around the corner to Byerly's on Duluth Street in Golden Valley for a quick item or the hot food options. It's great to have another option so close to our Golden Valley home. The New Hope Hy-Vee is a little less than 4 miles away from our house. In real estate the cliche is location, location, location... right? The location seems like it will serve Hy-Vee well with the opportunity to draw shoppers from New Hope and neighboring Golden Valley, Crystal, and Plymouth.
I'm no grocery store critic so there's are just observations. The store looks impressive and is huge. They were offering store maps to customers as they walked in the door. The choices are abundant. There are all of your regular grocery stamples. The separator from the competition might be everything else they offer. There's a restaurant in the store, the bakery is giagantic, the deli is impressive in it's presentation, the meat counter was too full of custimers for me to get a good look so I guess that means something, they have a sushi bar, and other hot food, a liquor store and too many other options that I can't, remember or didn't get a chance to see. On the way out the staff gave away free Snapple iced tea to customers. A nice touch.
It's awesome when a city has great amenities to offer home buyers.
