NEWS RELEASE (April 13, 2023) – Fareway Stores, Inc. plans to construct an approximately 10,600 square foot store at the southwest corner of Highway 18 and Division Street in Hull. Construction is planned to begin in late summer 2023, with a tentative opening in spring 2024.
“Communities depend on a local grocer to offer high quality products and unmatched service and help keep communities vibrant,” said Fareway CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “We look forward to serving area residents of Hull and want to thank city staff and community leaders for helping make this project possible.”
The new store will provide for only the best in fresh, highest quality meat; a full-service butcher counter; farm-fresh produce; low, competitive prices; and the highest level of customer service, including to-your-car carryout. The new store will offer FastLanes, a self-service checkout option, and online shopping and curbside pick-up, available at Shop.Fareway.com.
Hull Mayor Arlan Moss echoed positive comments regarding the store’s opening, “We are excited to welcome Fareway to Hull. Our residents have been waiting for a local grocery store committed to great customer service and our small-town values,” said Moss. Our City Council, City Staff, HIDC and individual citizens have been very committed to having Fareway come to Hull to meet the needs of our town. “We want to thank Fareway for their investment and commitment to making Hull a great place to live, work, and play.”
“We are proud to have a Fareway in Hull,” said Hull Economic Development Director Doug Anderson. “Fareway is a great fit for the City of Hull and will encourage the development of new restaurants, retail outlets, and housing. A Fareway grocery store will help the whole community prosper.”
Fareway will close on the property soon, with more details forthcoming in the near future.
