Hy-Vee Testing Small-Format Grocery Stores

Hy-Vee is planning to test a smaller-format grocery store in Lincoln, Neb., Progressive Grocer reported.

The store will be smaller than Hy-Vee’s standard supermarkets but 20,000 to 25,000 square feet larger than a typical convenience store. It will offer a smaller variety of products but will still have supermarket staples such as a meat department, a produce department and a range of packaged and canned goods.

Once final plans for the store are finalized, according to Progressive Grocer, a timetable will be set for its construction.

British retailer Tesco has garnered plenty of attention for its smaller-footprint debut in the U.S. market, Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market. Wal-Mart has also ventured into the realm of smaller grocery stores.
