Menomonie Council approves land sale to Gordy’s
Posted: April 10, 2015
The Menomonie City Council this week approved the sale of 5.34 acres in the Stout Technology and Business Park to Gordy's County Market for $600,000. The property, which is located south of U.S. Highway 12 and adjacent to Red Cedar Street, was sold to Shafer Properties III.
"I don't want to say too much other than we are still coming to Menomonie. The timing might get pushed back a bit, but we will get there as soon as we can," said Gordy's County Market President Jeff Shafer, who added that the grocery store chain has a number of projects taking place at the present time.
"The Burnstad deal kind of came out of nowhere and we are also working on the Chippewa Commons store (former Mega Foods location in Chippewa Falls). In all, we are doing five stores and the Burnstad deal was a $17 million deal…so we have a lot going on right now," said Shafer.
The land sale to Gordy's is contingent on the grocery store receiving a liquor license from the city at a future date.
Gordy's announced last month the acquisition of four Burnstad's Market grocery stores in Black River Falls, Richland Center, Tomah and Spencer. The ownership change will be finalized by the end of April.
The grocery chain also purchased the Chippewa Commons from Agree Development in Farmington Hills, MI. The former Mega Foods location is being converted to a Gordy's County Market and the rest of the retail complex is being renovated. TBL
