Kwik Trip eyes groundbreaking, opening late in 2019

With its building permit under review and plans for the storm water pond project almost completed, Kwik Trip is looking forward to a late-summer start to construction of its new store in Glencoe.
Construction of the new convenience store is tentatively scheduled for beginning in August. The building plans submitted to the city indicate the store will be worth about $1.2 million. Plans for the store arrived at Glencoe City Hall late last month. City Administrator Mark Larson told the city council the plans weighed 42 pounds.
“At this time, there are no red flags from our end. We have had some preliminary site plans to review previously,” Larson said last week, adding he doesn’t anticipate any issues moving forward. “It is possible that the building inspector may find issues, but those are typically resolved during the plan review.”
The store will be located east of Harpel Bros. Chevrolet-Buick dealership, between East 11th Street and Highway 212. Customers will access the store off of East 11th Street. Kwik Trip’s plans for the convenience store call for a facility open around the clock, said Dave Niemi, a spokesperson for the La Crosse, Wis. business. The store will employ about 35 people, 10 on a full-time basis.
