Springfield has a new grocery store.  A 93,000-square-foot Hy-Vee opened today at 2150 E. Sunshine St.

The parking lot was crowded at 8 a.m. today but there were no traffic problems in and out of the store at the stoplight on Sunshine. The light was placed there in anticipation of the grocery store.

The store has 607 employees. 

A Hy-Vee Fast & Fresh, a convenience store and gas station, had previously opened to the west of the grocery store.

The new Hy-Vee also has a DSW shoe shop and a Joe Fresh clothing department with a fitting room.

This store includes a food court area which features Wahlburgers, Starbucks and other dining options.

Store hours are 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Sunday.

Hy-Vee’s first Springfield store, at 1720 W Battlefield Rd., opened in 2011.

Hy-Vee is based in West Des Moines, Iowa.
