'Dear Hy-Vee': Letter campaign urged to attract grocer to Cottage Grove
Cottage Grove wants to earn a spot on Hy-Vee’s shopping list.
Mayor Myron Bailey is encouraging area residents to write letters to the grocery store chain, in hopes it will open a store in Cottage Grove.
Iowa-based Hy-Vee has 17 stores in Minnesota and earlier this year announced plans to expand into the Twin Cities area. It has plans for an Oakdale store, and the company said it will add several locations annually over the next several years.
