Have not heard a thing for months now on building progress- has the panic shutdown stopped the construction or are we still on schedule for a new store by July 4th ?

 Roger thanks … sincerely hope so - it was a miserable time running to Virginia for groceries last summer …

Construction is considered essential, and so are grocery stores. I can't imagine any reason that they would have stopped.

Drove by it a week ago and it looked like they were working on it.

Piping the refrigeration and installing the cases takes as long as anything in building a grocery store. Those things pretty much get done before the departments (bakery,deli,produce) get put in. But, once thats done it doesn't take long to set the shelving and stock the shelves.

Has anyone local heard anything about changes they are making compared to the old store?

Drove by today. I have no real knowledge but by the looks of things I would be surprised if it's open before early May. It will be a nice looking store.

Here's a little info that was in the Star/Tribune paper.                                "It will be a bigger store and have a hot deli in there,” said Jim Zupancich, manager of the Ely store and one of several family members still involved in the business. “It will be a modernized, very nice-looking store.”

Looks amazing- hot deli section … absolutely- hopefully done by my time at cabin- 4th of July … they will be getting more than a few dollars from me this summer - and glad to spend it locally.

I spoke to one in the family and they said they are looking at the 18th of May to open.

We were in there yesterday. I didn't see a bakery but they did have a hot deli / grab-n-go section in the back right corner. I saw a guy grab an already-cooked rotisserie chicken. The produce aisle looks almost identical to the old one, but everything is very nice and fresh. The best thing, is that you no longer need to walk into the back stockroom to use the restroom. The have nice restrooms in the front left corner near the freezer aisle.

 

There was a really good crowd there.

I’m hearing rumors of another bakery/restaurant possibly opening in Cook this summer. Won’t say any more at this point as I don’t have their permission but more is always better

Went in last week.  Very nice.   No home made ham salad but two kinds of chicken salad.   Wife was very happy.
