Store amenities are slated to include a food court, health and wellness center with on-site dietitian, and its own distributing arm, according to Springfield Business Journal archives.

Hy-Vee plans to invest nearly $1 million in road upgrades and a new traffic signal at the location.[[In-content Ad]]
