Gordy's acquires Kirkwood's IGA store in Chetek

Posted: August 24, 2012

The owners of Gordy's County Market in Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire and three other communities, announced this week that they have purchased the assets of Kirkwood's IGA in Chetek from Tom and Jane Kurschner, effective October 2nd.

"Tom contacted us a couple of weeks ago and was interested in selling. We've been interested in that market for quite a while, so it's a perfect fit for us," said Gordy's President Jeff Shafer, who added that all of the 65 Kirkwoods employees will be retained. "We are a SuperValu store and they are with Nash-Finch as a distributor, so we will close for two days at the end of September to re-set the store before reopening".

Gordy's County Market, which was established by Gordy Shafer in 1966, has two stores in Chippewa Falls and three stores in Eau Claire, as well as operations in Augusta, Cornell and Ladysmith. The company will employ more than 900 people.

"With nine stores, we can buy in volume and the larger we get, the more benefit for our customers. This is in the synergies of our stores and the reach we already get with our advertising," said Shafer.

Earlier this year, Gordy's started its own trucking division to haul goods and dairy products throughout its system. Shafer said the trucking operation also provides back-haul services for Premium Waters and Bush's Baked Beans.

Tom and Jane Kurschner, who has been in the grocery business for more than 35 years, previously had an ownership interest in stores in Bloomer and Colfax. TBL
