Hy-Vee recently opened the doors of a new 84,994-square-foot store in Coralville, Iowa, that boasts a more open-air feel than its normal format and some new features.
The store will be open around the clock seven days a week and will offer grocery delivery and pickup and self-checkout lanes. An accompanying convenience store and gas station opened two years ago while the store was under construction. It is Hy-Vee's second store in Coralville, a suburb of Iowa City.
The store offers a larger wellness center, in-store dietitians, a pharmacy with a drive-through window and a hearing center.
