Construction on both ends of Cherry Street progressing despite frigid, windy weather Vey cold temperatures and winds creating wind chill factors that were enough to stop most outside activities the latter part of last week didn't stop Hy-Vee's construction crew from raising a good part of the steel that will house the store's new 22,000-sq. ft. addition, located on the west side of Vermillion on Cherry Street.
Concrete work for the expansion and parking lot was completed during the exceptionally warm fall the area enjoyed this year.
The addition is expected to be completed this coming fall and the store will hire an additional 50 employees, according to store manager Cliff Deverell. It will also feature expansion of most departments and enhanced customer convenience.
