(WEAU) - Gordy's County Market is opening a new store.
Gordy's began renovating the old K-Mart building in Rice Lake Friday. The new 61,000 square-foot store is located at 2601 South Main Street. Gordy's says the new location will bring about 100 jobs to the community.
Construction is expected to take 4 to 5 months and the store will open in early summer.
The Gordy’s Guru Matt Selvig told us Friday "there's going to be a bakery, there's going to be a deli, there's going to be a meat department, so all of those departments are going to have to be built pretty much from scratch. The interior of the store is pretty much going to be gutted and re-done so we're very excited to see what the Gordy's is going to look like."
Gordy's says it had a lot of requests from people asking it to build in Rice Lake. This will be its 10th store.
Gordy's currently has 900 employees.
