October 15, 2015 Farewaybroke ground for a new store to be located at 6005 Merle Hay Road in Johnston. The new location will provide for an approximately 30,000 square foot Fareway grocery store.
“We are committed to providing area residents with our unmatched, full service meat department, farm-fresh produce, low, competitive prices, and only the highest level of customer service,” said Fareway CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “We appreciate the efforts of city officials, as well as all other parties, who worked so hard to make this new store a reality.
“We are excited to welcome Fareway to our thriving community,” said City of Johnston Mayor Paula Dierenfeld. “Residents overwhelmingly tell us that they want more places to shop. We are grateful Fareway recognizes this opportunity and has selected the City of Johnston in which to invest their next store.”
Construction is expected to be completed on the new store during fall 2016. This Johnston store marks the 114th Fareway location in the Midwest.
