Hy-Vee Mainstreet changing to pharmacy-focused store, removing grocery area
Updated statement from a representative from Hy-Vee, on Wednesday, January 16, 2019:
For customers who are looking for a larger selection of groceries, the Hy-Vee on Hamilton, which is approx. 1 mile away from the Sioux City Hy-Vee Mainstreet location, is happy to take care of their needs and find what they are looking for. In addition, if a customer is unable to drive to the Hy-Vee on Hamilton location, we will gladly help them with our Aisles Online service and deliver groceries directly to their home.
Some big changes are coming to one Siouxland Hy-Vee store.
Hy- Vee Mainstreet, located across from Unity-Point Health St. Luke's, is removing their grocery section and transforming into a pharmacy-focused store called Sioux City Hy-Vee Pharmacy Clinic.
A representative from Hy-Vee said in a statement to Siouxland News Saturday night:
The Sioux City Hy-Vee Mainstreet store, located at 2611 Pierce Street in Sioux City, will transition to become the Sioux City Hy-Vee Pharmacy Clinic by Feb. 1. The store will be modified to cater to hospital and pharmacy patients as well as those who are living and working in the area looking for items that are quick and convenient to pick up while on the go. The new store format will include a heavy emphasis on wellness and pharmacy services. The store will remain open during the remodel.
