NEWS RELEASE (April 11, 2022) – Fareway Stores, Inc. hosted ground breaking ceremonies today for two, new stores to be located at 16035 Hickman Road, Clive and 9080 Mills Civic Parkway, West Des Moines. The Clive location will provide for an approximately 24,000 square foot Fareway grocery store and the West Des Moines location will provide for an approximately 21,000 square foot Fareway grocery store.
“We are excited to continue our growth and bring additional locations to expanding areas of the metro,” said Fareway CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “We want to thank both local and state officials and look forward to serving area residents and the surrounding neighborhoods.”
“Since 2010 Fareway has been an active member of the Clive business community when they opened their first store in Clive,” said City of Clive Mayor John Edwards. “We are excited today to see their continued commitment to Clive with the opening of their 2nd location on Hickman Road.”
“Congratulations to Fareway on the new West Des Moines store and thank you for your continued investment in our community,” said City of West Des Moines Mayor Russ Trimble. “The new location will offer our residents another option when it comes to groceries and some of the freshest meat and produce in the market.”
“Fareway is a great Iowa company that understands the needs of our state and is committed to meeting them in communities large and small,” said Debi Durham, executive director of the Iowa Economic Development Authority and Iowa Finance Authority. “The fact that Fareway is willing to design stores and product lines based on a neighborhood or community speaks to this company’s innovative spirit.”
Site work will begin immediately, with expected completion of both locations in early 2023. The construction of the two new Fareway locations will complement existing Fareway stores servicing Clive, West Des Moines, and Waukee, in order to better serve area residents in these evolving communities. Additionally, another new location is planned in the near future at 10th and Sunrise in Waukee.
