BOONE, Iowa — Fareway Stores Inc. announced Thursday its plans to build a new 8,000-square-foot store in Ogden. Site work will begin immediately, with a scheduled opening in late 2022.
“Building a neighborhood Fareway store in downtown Ogden showcases our values and commitment to Iowa towns,” said Fareway CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “Communities depend on a local grocer to offer high quality products and unmatched service to complement other great local businesses and make smaller Iowa communities vibrant. We want to thank local officials and the State of Iowa for making this project possible.”
The new Ogden store will be located at 302 W. Walnut St., Cramer said. Ogden officials were pleased with the news.
“This is a great day for Ogden!” said Ogden Legacy President Craig Christensen. “We appreciate the commitment of Fareway and the efforts of our community. This store will be a fantastic addition to our town, and we are very thankful for Fareway’s believing in Ogden,”
Ogden City Councilmember Brian Reimers said he was “ecstatic to have this opportunity to work with Fareway in bringing a world class shopping experience to our town.”
A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 4.
